Hello! I have been reading this forum for months now and thought today was the perfect day to join! I am 46, and just had my ET (4 embies at 3 days, and 2 were laser hatched, grade 4 / 8 cell perfect lil things!) with my DH sperm and donor egg yesterday ,and am in that 2ww period:pray:
My RE is here in india( although i live in philly i came here for equal yet in expensive treatment)is extremely conservative with her care. She wants me on complete bed rest for five days! :grr: I am also on a high dose progynova( estriodal) as well as progesterone. I am wondering if those of you who had successful ET were on complete bed rest that long.I fear blood clots etc( even though i have no history of it). ANy advise on the 2 ww and whether you had full bed rest or partial etc.would help me so much! I want to do it right! thanks!
