So i had 2 embryos transferred this morning and have been resting at home. The first time I went to the loo after being home I noticed blood on my liner. Nurse said this is OK but the pink discharge is continuing and I'm worrying it's the embryos coming out. I've tried looking online and have read that spotting is common but can't help but worry. anyone else encountered this?

Hello, don't worry this is normal and I had this, just rest and think positive thoughts!

I had this too, and had bleeding on and off and horrible brown discharge for first 10 weeks. I am now 33 weeks with no problems so please try to relax.

mine was no lifting,sex, hot tubs or excessive excercise. You should just take it easy, I think that the no baths is silly and if you were having a bath with your daughter it would not have been excessively hot and your cervix is closed so its not like your little embryos are going to get washed out!

Thanks LL. Surely all this is just an added precaution cos in reality for those people who don't have trouble conceiving they do all these things before they find out their pregnant, as I'm sure I did last time (all those years ago). I won't do these things as I don't want to take the risk of losing our chance and losing our money but I'm sure it really is all down to luck now. I've tried to take it easy this weekend and certainly not doing heavy lifting, poor hubby has done all the housework but I'm going back to work tomorrow. I work in and office and the only 'risk' there is some of my files are heavy so I will ask someone to get them for me. But what consitutes heavy? Is a full kettle or water jug heavy? Sorry to be annoying but I do like to know every single detail lol

hello roberjl, I think heavy is anything that puts a real strain on your abdominal muscles, like lifting a heavy box of books or something! your not annoying at all you just want to know whats going on, hope the two week wait isn't treating you too badly!

Thanks, that's what I thought. I've been annoying my colleague asking him to get my files out for me cos some are heavy and the lighter ones are also a bit awkward to get out when they're wedged in the cupboard. I don't think I've lifted anything I shouldn't have. The 2ww is dragging as you would expect and it doesn't help that I'm not busy at work this week either.

I would like to ask you if you can spare some time and gave me your sincere opinion please. Can you advice me why clinics they don't use IUI method with fresh sperm ??? As success rate is so low[10%] with standard IUI why potential donor health is not checked 1 month before he give sperm donation and therefore with avoiding a freezing process chances for successful pregnancy will be at least 50%. I can't afford another IVF after failing. Its our money also running low so i and my partner we thinking to find a nurse and donor to perform IUI without freezing the sperm. For surely before that donor need to pass medical check up to see if he is suitable to become a donor. Are they really big chances that sperm got infected in contact with air and therfore baby is born with disabilities ??? I REALLY,REALLY APRECIATE PEOPLE IF YOU COULD ADVISE ME ON THAT ISSUE!! THANK YOU IN ADVANCE VERY MUCH FOR YOUR SINCERE ANSWERS GOD BLESS !!!
