Bedrest after transfer
I just had 4 embryos transfered earlier today.  The doctor has me on bedrest for the next 48 hours.  Can any of you share your stories and if the IVF was successful?  Thanks.

Hi.  I did my first IVF in July & I also was on 48 hours strict bedrest, getting up only to use the restroom, not even taking a shower.  After that 48 hours, I still took it easy.  No heavy lifting, no exercising, etc.  Mine was a success & I'll be 17 weeks tomorrow! =)  Good luck to you & if you have any other questions, I'll try to help.

Hi there..I have had two IVF cycles.  Each time, I was on bed rest for 48 hours, only getting up to use the restroom.  After that, light activiy, no heavy lifting ect...both failed.  I am getting ready to have my third transfer this Friday or Sunday.  I am going to take 3 days for bed rest this time, although I don't think it will honestly make a difference, but I will feel better, and try not to stress out, I think I did both times before, I am going to stay positive, no stress, and relax :) Good Luck and keep us posted

I did bedrest for 48 hours though the doctor only recommended 24 hours.  I didn't do much on the third day, but I did walk a lot (which I hope doesn't impact anything). I go for my pregnancy test NEXT FRIDAY.

I am tempted, however, to get an HPT to see if I am pregnant now.

After transfer, I was told bedrest for the rest of the day until the morning after (so close to 24 hours). Then light activities for the next 2 days. We ended up watching a lot of movies!

Best of luck!!!

I was bed resting after transfer for an hour and was told to take it easy for the rest of the day.  I went to work the day after.  Now I have a perfect little girl.

Good luck!!!

Wow..thanks so much for your comments.

This is my first IVF, so I am hoping that everything works out.  I have been in bed since yesterday watching movies and on the computer.  My husband is being very helpful bringing me everything to bed.

I try to get into different positions so I dont feel numb, but it him if I lay on my stomach or cross my legs for too long of a period of time.

Tommorrow will be the last day that I will be in bed, so Saturday I should be back to light activites.

I have my pregnancy test on the 29th
