How to prep for my FET tomorrow and more questions

Tomorrow is my long-awaited FET!!! I would love a list of foods or strategies that might help it to be successful- I have read that pineapple helps with implantation- also that warm foods are good. Any other suggestions?

Anyone have some ideas for good shows to watch on Netflix while I am on bed rest? I am nearly done with Raising Hope- so I need something else. Also- when they say bed rest- should I be laying on my back the whole time? They suggest putting my feet up- so for the first day should I be laying in bed with my feet up on a pillow?

Thanks for any help!

Re: How to prep for my FET tomorrow and more questions

FWIW after NONE of my successful transfers did I do any kind of bedrest. But it's a won't hurt might help kind of thing so feel free to still do it. I ate pineapple with my June cycle and this last one and both implanted so might have helped. LOTS of IVF baby dust from me!!!!!!!!!!

Re: How to prep for my FET tomorrow and more questions

Hmmmm~ I don't really have any shows that I can suggest....I just browse until I find something I like.

I have no idea about what to or not to eat...I've heard about the pineapple but never did that with any of my million FET's. I would say that you just eat whatever you feel like you want...

Have magazines ready, computer, phone, tv remote and try to get up as little as possible. Not sure how much that will technically help either because I always questioned myself as to if I got up too much or not. I pray that you have someone very helpful around that will get anything and everything for you that your heart desires!

Talk to the embryos too! I did....again, can't hurt anything

I will have my fingers and everything crossable crossed for you!!

Re: How to prep for my FET tomorrow and more questions

No suggestions on the food & bedrest from me, just & happy thoughts.

As for TV, what do you like? I've whipped through Downton Abbey, Switched at Birth, Pretty Little Liars, hmmm...I think White Collar is on Netflix, too.

I watch a lot of Hulu+; most of our kid's shows are on Netflix, but I could certainly find more, I think.

Re: How to prep for my FET tomorrow and more questions

Ingrid- Do you think bed rest can cause problems? I have read a lot and I guess some suggest no bed rest to increase the blood flow to the uterus. My RE says bed rest... I guess I will do what he says. Did you do the whole- eat McDonalds fries, wear green, etc??? Where is Heather!?! She is suppose to tell me what to do

Susan- Thanks so much! I hope that I can enjoy some time of rest

Carrie- I love Downton Abbey- I haven't heard of Switched at birth- is it a reality show? My favorite shows are Deadwood, Doc Martin, Shameless, Torchwood, Parks and Recreation...
Any suggestions?

No advice for the FET but I wanted to wish you good luck and send sticky vibes!

I like parenthood. The episodes are available online through NBC.com.

No, I don't really do reality shows. It's an ABCFamily crap teen drama. I'm totally hooked on those types of shows Oh, Supernatural is on netflix...there are, like, 8 seasons by now or something.
