The 48 hours bedrest

After the embryo transfer, I was told not to move for 4 hours. The nurses used a patslide and slided me from the surgery bed to the trolley bed and then to the bed in the room where spent the next 4 hours just lying flat on my back.  When 4 hours up, I got up and left the room, waited for the lift, walked to the carpark to hubby car. I was probably on my feet for 10 to 15 mins during this period. The car journey home was 20 minutes. I got out of the car and took the lift up to my apartment. Once inside, climbed onto bed and carried on with my bedrest on my back.  Only got up for dinner and pee breaks.  I struggled to stay on my back in the night but couldnt fall asleep and so I succumbed to sleeping on my side.
I am 1dp5dt. 8 more days before I poas and 11 more days before the official hcg blood test.

  2. Doctors advise women to get back to their routine work after a 3 days time of the embryo transplant. One need to flinch from such advices coming from sources that that themselves unaware and follow what is prescribed by the doctor.

  3. Women who undergo IVF treatment are told to take bed rest for a couple weeks following the transfer of the embryo. Women often take this bed rest recommendation to mean that they must remain still or risk failure of the implantation process. But research suggests that bed rest following embryo transfer is not required for successful implantation of the embryo.
