FET Schedule

I just got a voicemail from my nurse. My FET is scheduled for 2:00pm, but I need to check in at 1:30pm. 75 minutes prior to the FET, I need to empty my bladder and then drink 20 oz. of water (from 12:45pm-1:00pm). I am not looking forward to the full bladder part--that was absolutely awful last time!

My pre-FET acupuncture appointment is scheduled for 12:00pm (45-minute appt.). Then I will drink my water and check in for my FET appt. After the procedure, I will go back and do my post-FET acupuncture appointment, then go home and rest.

I will take it easy for 2-3 days (no lifting anything over 25 lb.), and continue my oral/vaginal Estrace and Progesterone injections until my first blood pregnancy test (scheduled for Wednesday, 11/23/16).

I am a little less nervous/anxious this time around, but of course I'm sure that will change as I enter the 2WW!

  • 12:00pm – 1st Acupuncture Appt.
  • 12:45pm – Empty bladder, then drink 20 oz. of water before 1:00pm

  • ~2:450pm – 2nd Acupuncture Appt. (exact time TBD)

After Transfer:

  • Take it easy for 2-3 days; no heavy lifting
  • Continue medications  until first blood pregnancy test
