(Edit - title should say first tri, not first try) Hi all, So I am 7 weeks with my fourth pregnancy, I have two children, straightforward pregnancies. I saw my doctor yesterday to get a prescription for a bêta hcg blood test (obligatory here to register at a clinic). She said something that surprised me - that if the blood test came out ok, I should be signed off work in order to rest so that the baby can implant well. She said I should avoid cycling, standing and walking for long periods, etc. Really? I have always thought that bar really extreme levels of activity, the only thing that will stop this baby implanting is a problem with its development, which unfortunately does happen and cannot be avoided by resting. For background, I am 42, and my only fertility problem is age. No reason to think that anything else would affect the development of the pregnancy. Is there any reason to rest more at a later age than when I had my first two? I don’t mean to sound cynical, I really want this to work out as it is probably my last chance for another baby. But I didn’t think there was anything I could do to help it, aside taking the necessary vitamins. Thanks.
