Howdy. Well, it looks like I may be joining you here after all. I just got a BFN on my third FET in a row, and while we do have 2 embryos frozen still, I am leaning towards another fresh IVF cycle (many factors).
Anyway, regarding running - I was running and exercising regularly leading up to my first IVF cycle 3 years ago. I didn't really cut back on things early enough and too much activity can apparently increase your odds of ending up with OHSS, which I was told I was at risk for. If we cycle again, I will try to exercise regularly up until I start stims, then cut back to strolling types of walks.
And I have been hanging around this board for TOO LONG because I have given this advice sooooo many times (and every time at least one person says "I didnt' think it would happen to me, but it did".) So here goes:
Don't let yourself get constipated.
The meds, the lack of activity, the huge ovaries, etc. can all lead to nasty horrible constipation, which is a Very Bad Thing to be dealing with when you go for ER and ET. Even the bcp's start it for me, so be on top of it, eat piles of steamed veggies, prune juice, stool softeners if you have to. I never ever had issues with this until I started IF treatments, and then, wow, I cannot even tell you how bad it can get. Okay, end TMI.
