I just had my first round of IVF yesterday and I'm wondering if some of these are common with others that have done IVF.
1. Doing one round of IVF has been a 2 month long procedure and during the first month, I was on BC for a while (followed by tons of other meds).
2. My RE encouraged cryopreservation of the other embryos to allow a better chance to pick "good" embryos.
3. And last but not least, I'm on total bedrest for 3 days. This means that I can get up to go to the bathroom, but cannot be up for more than 15 minutes at a time.
I have faith in my RE, but I'm curious about your experiences.
