A (really) personal question

A question for my fellow IVF-ers out there,  if you don't mind my asking (if you do mind, of course, you can just refuse to answer): what was your RE's recommendation for having sex after embryo transfer?  My clinic recommends waiting until after the first ultrasound (when I'll be 5w4d), but there are certain people around here who are getting restless (I won't name names).  Has anyone else's MD been so conservative on the sex front?

Your answers will be greatly appreciated :)

In other news...I have none. Everything is A-OK over here so far. We're busy cleaning the house ( is that, Amy, since you're posting a blog entry?) for my nieces and nephews to come over tonight for our Annual Elf Watching and Lasagna Eating (catchy name, huh).  We got an early Christmas present to make this tradition more awesome this year: a 40" LCD HDTV (40" is MORE than enough for our wee living room) with a Blu-Ray player and surround sound (woo hoo!).

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!!!

I can not really blame "he who shall not be named in this post." You made a baby!! That's so totally hot. ;-)

Hope you get some good advice from the blogosphere. :D

Happy EWLEing!

My RE never said when to resume. They only told us when to stop during the stim cycle. I don't see why you'd have to wait. Fertiles have sex when they don't even know they're pregnant yet. I wonder what their reasoning is.

Uh, they didn't say. I can tell you though that I have absolutely NO desire! LOL!

Mine says wait for the first ultrasound. But a friend's doc says it's okay after a second beta. Go figure. I dunno.

We were told to refrain until the heartbeat was seen on ultrasound...looks like everyone says something different.

My IVF nurse said to refrain the first trimester, yikes!

Happy Thanksgiving!

I have no advice about the sex. My hubby has decided he doesn't like me, so I don't remember what the word sex means.

Having said that, I'm still giddy for you over this BFP!!!!!
