Ok so went for my lining check on Monday and I wasn't quite thick enough..  7mm.  They said I need to be min 8mm before they will book my  transfer.  I went this morning..  12 mm.  So my transfer is booked for Tuesday at 12pm..

here is my request for advice.  I am trying not to stress too much about this but I want to make the best effort possible.

 

My clinic is not open on Monday for acupuncture.  Nor are they open on Sunday.   So I booked a session for this Saturday.  I also booked a session for Tuesday at 3pm, a few hours after my transfer. 

here is my question, should I call the clinic and rebook my acupuncture session for Tuesday MORNING, instead of Saturday. 

If I did this, it would mean I would be booking a acupuncture appointment before and after my FET on the day of the transfer.  First acupuncture at 10am.. transfer at 12pm, second acupuncture at 3pm. 

 

my Fertility Clinic don't really have much of an opinion on Acupuncture so they are not really much use on guidance for this.   My acupuncturist is trained in TCM and I have confidence in her abilities.  I don't want to do anything that could hinder my chances.   

 

thoughts?

My fertility acupuncture does Treatment on Day 3 or 4 of your cycle, then 3-4 days later, then 3-4 days later and the day of transfer before and after.  I would do Sat as well as the day of, both before and after.

Hey 

Just came upon a few of your posts notice we are at the same clinic :) I was in this morning but around 9:30 and pulled into a room right away. 
I did acupuncture for my first cycle but that was before the clinic had their own inside the clinic. I was seeing Jenn at pillars of health and she was amazing. I've heard amazing things about the clinics acupuncturist tho. Jean had me in once a week for 4 months leading up to the ER and ET and then as those dates approached I was in 2-3 times a week and then on the day of transfer (before and after). it was really nice because even when she was off she would come in to make sure she did it. Pillars of health sell packages for fertility treatments so she knew she would have a few "unexpected" days of work with me.
Just wanted to say all the best with your transfer and hopefully you get that BFP soon :D
