Would you go on an international vacation shortly after a frozen embryo transfer (5-10 days after)? It is looking like my first transfer opportunity will be shortly before a trip I already have planned. I’d rather not wait, and the one time I have been pregnant before I implanted on a international vacation but I don’t know if this is a stupid thing to do? I have a very stressful job so maybe it would be good to be away from work?? Curious what others think.

I just did this! Went on a weeklong international trip 9 days after FET. For me, it was the perfect break from the stress of the past few months of balancing a stressful job and IVF.

I tested positive with a first response test the morning we left (!!!) and took a few tests with me to keep checking/ease a bit of my anxiety while we were away. To be honest, I was a bit worried about if something were to happen while we were away, but I’ve also experienced several miscarriages before this pregnancy and, in my experience, there wasn’t anything the doctor could do to stop it from happening.

The stress relief and quality time with my partner (we’ve both been very stressed lately) outweighed my fears, but either way you decide, I hope things work out well for you!

As long as it’s not a long trip! I had an ectopic and it became an emergency overseas (went on a trip 10 days after transfer for a few weeks)

My first pregnancy I did everything right - super paranoid - and it ended in a MC. Second I was more lax, less stressed, and now in third trimester.

If it doesn’t stick or would somehow end in MC this trip will not have caused it. Rest, relax, and enjoy your trip

After the frozen transfer, the doctor would want to check your beta to confirm pregnancy (between 8-12days post transfer), if you are ok to skip it, and the trip is in between, I would say go for the trip. Make sure you can get pregnancy confirmation somewhere though because you will most likely be on progesterone for about 10 weeks if you are confirmed pregnant, or you need to stop progesterone if you are not. I personally would go for it, it will be good and help take your mind off it too. ☺️

Anyone switch companies while pregnant/trying to become pregnant and still able to take maternity? I have been waiting months for a DOD job to open up and was about to apply. Then I learned that in order to have paid leave (and any job protection), I’d have to work with the DOD a year first before going on leave. Add 6-9 months for background checks to the process and any hope of that job went right out the door for me as I’m currently in the process of doing IVF.

I feel like such a shitty mom. I am 40 weeks and 4 days and I have not gone into labor yet. The first time I had a C-section, so I cannot be induced for fear of uterine rupture. But if I wait too long for the onset of natural labor for my planned VbAC, then I might be risking the baby’s health. After pumping myself up fir a VbAC and studying breathing techniques and being ready to give birth, I am just at an impasse. My doc scheduled a csection for Thursday because she doesn’t want to wait
