in germany where i live,
doctors advice carrying on with normal activities,
including going to work (which i find OK in terms of mental distraction...)
i don't feel safe in this world no more, i don't want to die in a nuclear war
i wanna sail away to a distant shore and live like an ape man!

Might seem a little extreme, but I had 4 losses and during those pregnancies I continued on with life as normal. Decided to change it up for zero regrets.

The only rest I got was in the three-hour car ride home after the transfer! Then it was back to normal.
Me: 30, no issues
Him: 42, poor motility (antibodies)
5 X IUI = 4 BFNs and 1 chemical
Nov 2014, switched to Foothills clinic for IVF w/ICSI
Feb 2015, IVF #1 antagonist protocol
29 retrieved, 22 mature, 14 fert, 8 to blast!
Transferred 1 and froze 7, BFP with a beautiful singleton.

I like the idea of taking it easy, but I'm confused about taking it easy immediately after. Doesn't it matter if it's a 3 day vs 5 day transfer or 3/5 day embryo FET? It takes a certain amount of days for embryos to finish hatching before attempting to burrow into the lining, right... so wouldn't the critical timing to take it easy if you want to, be not immediately?
Or is that just in a fresh transfer? If it's a FET, does the hatching process bring you right up to 5 days if they were frozen at day 3? (Am I making sense to anyone here, LOL.) For planning certain time off work it would definitely come into play..

I'm 41 with endo
IVF #1: March 2016: Long protocol: Suprefact (200)/Menopur (225)
9 follicles => 4 eggs => 3 mature => 3 fertilized (ICSI) => 2 blasts (one transferred, one frozen)
IVF #2: June 2016: Microdose flare: Suprefact (40 BID)/Menopur (150)/ Gonal (300)
7-10 follicles (?) => 12 mature eggs => only 4 fertilized w/ICSI => transferred 2 @ 3days and 1 blast frozen
BFP: day 14 beta = 93, day 18 beta 557 (37h doubling time)
.... it stuck and we welcomed our boy March 2017!
back on this crazy journey again: June 6, 2018: FET #1...

My first transfer I didn't do bed rest but didn't go over board. It was BFN. 2nd transfer, the cycle had been so cursed that I figured it would fail anyway so I went straight to work after the transfer and then kayaking the day after. Gobsmacked to get a take home baby. Of course this is all just anecdotal. However, there was a study done a while back that suggested that bed rest actually negatively impacted success:
Do whatever will leave you with the fewest regrets if things don't go as you hope - but know that you can't knock the embryo out or anything like that.
Fingers crossed for you!
