    Default Swimming in the TWW! Help!

    Had egg pick up a few months back so this was just a frozen embryo transfer. I'm feeling much more relaxed so thank you very much 😊 I guess people swim all the time without even knowing that they have an embryo growing in there! She said it was definitely okay once the embryo burrowed in though! I'll just hope that it's taking place now and that everything will be fine!

    I not only went swimming, but went down a tube slide within a week of my transfer with ds2. I felt sick with worry afterwards, but he's nearly 2 and I didn't wash him away, or whatever else I thought would happen!

I didn't know it was possible even from reading stuff on the net but she explained all that to me!
    I do wonder what research was conducted to prove this. I don't want to tell you what my mind is making up! Also, it's not as though you went swimming naked and star jumped into the pool. Hehe

    No more naked star jumps into the pools ladies!

    Seriously though, I honestly think you haven't done anything to compromise this embryo, cooling off in a pool is relaxing = less stress = better for you and hopefully embryo!

    All the very best x

    Haha no naked starjumps here! I was really just bobbing around and treading water a little. I didn't splash around or even dive under the water, wasn't upside down in the water or anything crazy!

    I'll rest assured that it was okay to be in there and probably better that I was out of the heat! I'll let you know if I get some good news in a little over a week!
