when did you go back to normal after ET children-wise?

My consultant said I shouldn't carry my daughter till pregnancy test but that sounds a bit too long for me (she can't walk yet). For how long did you not carry your little ones after ET? She is 20 lb at the moment and to be honest i really miss carrying her around although i have to add she is quite cute crawling after me. DH took a couple of days off so i don't actually have to pick her up but i would like to.

Thanks,
Rianon

Hi Rianon. I am not sure of the scientific thoughts but I would have thought it would be fine to carry her. I mean most people who get PG naturaly would not even know at this stage & be hoofing toddlers etc about.
I always thought that cuddling a baby can stimulate the hormones etc and make the body more in tune withgetting PG.

Thank you dear Taxi for replying. I am trying to cuddle her as often as possible but still feel disabled as cannot even put her into her highchair, cot etc. normal routine things. She also misses me as whenever she sees me she comes as quick as possible on all fours for being picked up... What did your clinic tell you about lifting and carrying things after ET?

Hi Rianon, congratulations on being PUPO. My clinic said not to lift my, then 22 month old, until OTD, so 14 days...but I know that varies so much clinic to clinic. Wishing you so much luck for your BFP xx

I tried not to lift my son until test day but there is always going to be occasions where you just have to.

Just try not to do too much and lift as little as possible- it is only for two weeks and if it helps it will be worth it.

Good luck hun blowkiss

Hi Dusky and Gemma,

Thank you so much for your replies and well-wishes. I identified the most dangerous places (like highchair, cot or pushchair) and keep asking DH to sit DD on my lap :-) Good luck for you Dusky too for the coming FET. Is FET any easier than a fresh cycle? Gemma enjoy the pregnancy I can see you soon get to the stage when you can't lift your LO again :-)

Hi hon, I had to rig up beanbags etc so that DD could climb in and out of her cot, and I took the legs off her highchair so that she could climb in, she was practically sitting on the floor bless her.

FET is a much easier process, just DR injections and HRT tablets and cyclogest pessaries for me. Obviously no stimming so far less stressful, and about £4,000 cheaper!!!

Hope the 2ww is going as quickly as possible for you, when is OTD? Xxx

Hi hon.

My clinic just said take it easy for first 48 hours then carry on as normal.
TBH I think all clinics vary with their guidelines though.

Like Taxi said it does seem to vary so much from clinic to clinic. My clinic were very much 'carry on as normal'. I have just got my second BFP which was natural so I wasn't even aware I was on the '2WW'! I am constantly picking up my little boy who is 34lb's!!! Now that I know that I am pg I do think a bit more about how I pick him up but there are just some things that you can't avoid.

Wishing you lots of luck.

Wow Jasper congratulations for your pregnancy!! It must have felt so great when you found out. Did you tell your DH before testing or was it a surprise to him? You can't really do surprises with IVF... By the way I don't think you need to worry about picking him up: you cannot harm the little one inside only yourself. You might be able to ask him to climb onto a chair for a cuddle :)

I wish my clinic was a bit less careful. I kept asking them when can I go back to sports but they keep telling me I don't want to regret it later. Sadly it is not known if there is a difference in implantation between natural and IVF pregnancy and I don't dare to test myself. I do beleive my consultant is over-cautios but then he is so busy with work that I don't think he has time to do sports so will never understand me.

Dusky you are hilarious! I love your creativity :-) I cannot copy it yet as DD is still to young but if we ever try again (rather not - I wish this one to work) I might use your method.

Well all in all I have already held DD couple of times but never actually lifted her. I say it here and now that if we get a negative result (but hoping and praying for a positive) I will not feel guilty as it is more important to care for an already existing child than to neglect her for somthing probable.

Thank you again for your lovely messages and the reassurance. Very true that every clinic is different and I am sure you cuddled your DGD a lot Taxi even during the 2 week wait.

xx Rianon
