I personally don't know if there is any diet that helps egg quality but a healthy body can't hurt! I was on weight watches on the lead up to my transfers to try and be my healthiest.
The waiting part really sucks and just watching what I ate & exercise made me feel like I was doing something productive to help.
I hope my ramblings have helped and good luck!

At min. make sure you take a pre-natal vitamin with folic acid. Reduce your alcohol and caffeine intake and watch your diet if you tend to eat a lot of refined carbs or processed foods.

Trying to conceive since our wedding day May 25, 2008.
Started Clomid Jan-April 2012.
Referred to RFP June 2012.
First consult at RFP November 2012.
First IVF cycle on antagonist protocol (GonalF, Luveris) January 2013.
Transferred two day-3 embryos, had severe OHSS, lost one twin between 7-13 weeks but was expecting one little one October 2013.
Found out at 6 mos that our little one had died weeks earlier and had to induce and deliver stillborn, July 25, 2013.
Something found on adrenal gland at follow up ultrasound, MRI showed what seems to be a benign tumor. Meeting with specialist Jan 8, 2014 - all fertility treatments on hold. :/
Tumor is definitely producing Aldosterone (causes high blood pressure) and Cortisol. Lucky me, only 34 similar cases recorded in the world! Tumor removed May 2014.
Approached about a possible adoption March 2014. Rush through all the paperwork and process.
Charlotte Evangeline born June 27, 2014. We brought her home on July 7 and held our breath for 10 days until she officially became ours.
