Guided Meditation — The Bump
Infertility

Guided Meditation

Hey all,

I had my first FET yesterday, and the acupuncturist (I did acupuncture before and after the transfer) at the clinic recommended doing guided meditations that were specific to post-transfer. I've done some searching but thus far have only come up with general fertility/infertility/general IVF meditations. Does anyone have a recommendation for a meditation that is specific to an embryo transfer?

Thanks!

    Hi @RedBess.  FX for you!  

    someone on one of the IF boards once recommended the app Mindful IVF for meditation.  I downloaded it but have never tried it.

  • Checking out the one above! No tips but I'm way more anxious than I should be during this 2WW so I'll check this out as well :)
  • Since I just posted about how anxious I am maybe I should consider taking my own advice.

  • Thanks for the suggestion, @laurad75!

    I try to maintain a daily meditation practice that really helped me with the lead-up to the FET. It definitely helped with some of the stress. Fingers crossed for your March FET! 

    Good luck with your 2WW @PolythenePam! Fingers crossed!
