Straining bowel movement affecting Embryo impant?

I had IVF yesterday morning, I'm 36 years old soon to be 37.  They implanted 3 embryos that were 2+ grades.  Because of the recent retrievel process I've been constipated.  Yesterday, I strained during a bowel movement and I'm worried I may have hurt the embryos?  I've been on bed rest and I'm doing everything else.  Also, there is no reason we haven't been able to get pregnant naturally except that I don't ovulate normally.  It's all timing so they felt IVF was the best option to control timing.  
I'm worried I may have hurt our potential babies.  Can you please tell me if I have cause for concern?
thank you!

I think you will be fine... We did a fresh cycle IVF in November of 2005 - I was nervous because, opposite your position, I had the "runs"... I was afraid that "going" too much would cause the embryo to "fall" out... Well, that embryo hung on - and is almost 16 months old... Try not to worry :o)
