Cristine - awww, congrats!!! I can't believe your little guy is almost here! My how the time has flown. Hoping you have an easy and wonderful delivery. Will you be at MFC? Come back and update us when you get a chance!
vmt - I'm sorry that your cycle didn't go as hoped. My experience is that Dr. V and Dr. Garcia are amazing. The other REs are newer and while I'm sure they're very good, I'd definitely recommend the two I mentioned above. Of course, for some people it does take a couple of rounds (unfortunately) to figure out what does/does not work.
Kate - very odd. Hoping that this figure this out for you. Fingers crossed that it is in fact a viable pregnancy. Keep us updated
Anyfung - I don't think it really matters what you do the day of/following transfer. I always take it easy for the first 24hrs, but that's about it. I tried not to lift my kids for about a week, but that's easier said that done. I had a 2 year old jumping on my stomach, bags to pack, stair to climb - I just lived life. The only 'different' thing that I did (this time, as well as when I got pregnant with my others) was that I didn't eat/drink anything colder than room temperature. Something I read about maintaining a nice warm environment. Good luck with your transfer!
CHG - sorry your journey continues to be full of bumps. I'd 100% recommend talking to Dr. V. He's the champion of immunological interventions and I'm sure he'd be very interested to see what you've tried, what's worked etc. He's on top of the latest developments and always seems to have a new cutting edge tweak. Good luck and keep us updated
AFM - 19 weeks today. I honestly can't believe that I'm pregnant, and that it's almost half over. I have my 21 week anatomy scan in two weeks - just hoping that whomever is in there is healthy and happy.
