Awesome for the info Zebra! Yes I am doing quite a few of those. It was just my 30th Birthday yesterday, so the diet and drinking went a little out the window. But starting about 1 month out from transfer I will be back on the strict anti-inflammatory diet, no alcohol, no caffeine, I do acupuncture, as well I take Vit D, Vit C, Vit E, Ubiquinol, Alpha Lipoic Acid, MTHF, a prenatal with DHA and melatonin... wow this sounds like a lot haha.
I am also contemplating doing a intralipid IV treatment one week before transfer per my naturopath.

I sound crazy enough as it is, but I am pretty much throwing everything in I can do as long as it can't hurt!

I will be doing my first IVF starting at the end of June. I would love to hear tips as well! When I looked on pinterest for IVF tips/tricks I saw A LOT of people get WARM wool socks because they say that if your feet are cold then your uterus is cold. (probably some chinese medicine I am guessing?) But I did go out and got some long almost knee high socks.

I tried pineapple core with my IUI, so I don't believe that will help me personally.
I don't believe acupuncture will help either, I also was going for months and around IUI time. I have a friend who did acupuncture for 1 of her 2 IVF's. She got pregnant both times so I will not be doing that either.

BUT I will say if acpuncture helps you relax then by all means go for it! I just personally think for myself I won't be including it (and to save money since we are paying out of pocket for IVF)

I plan on getting massages weekly to help relax though lol

TWW is going. Its been a long time since I've been this focused on day by day progression during the TWW. Normally I just lose track of the days entirely. I'm only 5 dpo today so nothing too exciting going on. I'm having progesterone SE starting up, acne, bloated, constipated, and really fricken irritable/emotional. It's too early for it to be anything other than progesterone though so I'm not getting my hopes up.

Like zebra2017 has written, acupuncture is a must (in my personal opinion) It worked for my friends who got pregnant on their first attempt in Poland. x

Good luck! I'm in the middle of it now. I haven't really tried any of the "old wives tales" type suggestions, but I did give up coffee and alcohol during my birth control phase. I drink about one cup or less of caffeinated tea now... trying to switch completely to caffeine-free. My doctor told me to stay very hydrated and eat plenty of protein. Also said to give up vigorous exercise, which has been hard for me. On more of a logistical note, I recommend setting an i-phone alarm for your nightly injections. You'd be surprised how it can slip your mind, even after doing them for about a week, and my doctor said to try very hard to do them at around the same time each night. On the first night, give yourself PLENTY of time to watch the videos and get comfortable with it. (It took me about 30 mins to figure it out, then work up the nerve to stick in the needle.)

JB- lol yeah I am not thrilled about having to give myself injections! My husband had a different work schedule when I needed IM injections and he was able to give them to me. Now he has a new work schedule and I am all by myself. I may drive to a friends house if I need the trigger shot.

I am gonna be such a wuss with the first shot. AND I AM A NURSE!!!! LOL doesn't feel good to be at the other end of the needle lol
