Mne said no for me as well. Said it was important not to get hot so stick to showers. If bfpthis advice was also to appy to first trimester when baby's nervous sytem developing. Odd how they can differ!

Mine say none because of the heat basically around your tummy...something about blood vessels being fragile after the EC procedure...I forget...they didn't tell me this time and it wasn't in my post EC literature. It is in the post ET bumph though but that's for different reasons.

I did see you had a bath last nigth kara but didn't mention it cos you'd had it!!

You'll be fine hon...I'm sure it's good advice for those who have had a tough procedure with bleeding etc.

Sorry - just the way I read it. I'm sure core body temperature is more of a concern only after transfer.

What about going abroad in the heat could that cause problems, if our ivf works this time then we will be in florida when i am around 6 weeks PG and the weather will probably be in the 80s should i not sunbathe or will i be ok?

How do the people go on who live there?

Its all so confusing so many dos and donts :sadface:

Sunbathing to the point of getting very hot/sweaty is not a good idea. Getting hot for prolonged periods of time is what is dangerous to the embryo. Baths are frowned upon for this reason - if you soak for half an hour or more, your body's core temperature will go up and an embryo/foetus is less able to regulate its temperature. Living in a hot climate is ok because (a) you're adjusted to it and (b) you tend to come and go rather than just sit in the sun.

I personally would recommend that you don't sunbathe, but you certainly don't have to stay indoors all the time. Just make sure you stay cool.

P.S. When pg you react to the sun much quicker so get browner etc. Lots of sun cream! But you'll be a lovely colour without anyof the effort.

Bathing after egg collection

Hi
I had egg collection yesterday and i always feel the best way to help tummy pain is by having a nice hot bath.

I am not sure if im allowed to tho as i thought i had read something saying no bathing.

Looked online but cant seem to find anything

Im the same, always finds a bath helps!!! I ended up with OHSS, think i was having 2or 3 a day!!!!
I know i had a bath after EC but i cant remember how long after. I also made sure it had no bubble bath in it though.
Also i had to have dh there when getting in and out of bath as i was very achey and felt very fragile after having soo many eggs collected.

RE: Bathing after egg collection

Hope your feeling a little less delicate today. You know that you can take paracetamol Kate if you are really uncomfortable and I don't think a bath would hurt as long as its not too hot.

Anything that relaxes that womb ready for your embies will help.

Wishing you all the best for ET xx

Is it ok to have a bath after EC?

Afternoon ladies,

Silly question I know - but is it ok to get in the bath the day after EC?
I've got my ET on Fri afternoon, and start my cyclogest pesaries tonight....I've stopped bleeding after EC, and I am dying for a soak in the bath!

Thanks

Check with your consultant but is should be OK. They say you shouldn't have a bath following ET because it can raise your body temperature if the bath is too hot and impact on the embies but this doesn't apply after EC but prior to ET.

No hunni don't have baths now. They have been messing around with your down-belows and a bath increases the risk of infection as you are lying in your own dirt, so don't. Also after e/t is better not to have baths for the same reasons and so that your body doesn't get too hot and kills the embies.
