    @Blossom74 If I were you I'd ask your FS about it now. There's no point weaning off just to start again. You mention 4 tabs so is that 20mg in total per day? I've done the weaning off for a few weeks just to start again. I realised (for me) it was futile so just stayed on them instead of expecting my body to cope with the variances. Best case scenario when would your transfer be? I'd also ask him what you'd take once pregnant. Because that's exactly what's going to happen.

    @Tinachris What a kind thing to post. Without a partner you don't get to hear the lovely words of encouragement like you've just expressed. I teared up. A little bit of kindness goes a long way. Maybe you could be my Cycle Partner, kind of like a Birthing Partner, to help encourage me. Are you up for the role? It's been vacant for a long time!!

    - breathing practice : Do at least 3 sessions of 10 slow, diaphragm relaxing, belly filling breaths. This will switch your brain out of stress mode and reduce your stress response. In fact you can do this as many times a day as you like. Remember, relax that diaphragm...

    - Exercise: You need to get your Qi moving but don't over do it. If you are tired after a work out, you've done too much. Walking is great! I also recommend yoga as it incorporates breath work with movement so it's a win-win. Soft gentle yoga such as restorative or yin yoga would be really great for you at this stage. Don't focus on being the best at each pose, I want you to focus on your breath work. IF you do go to a yoga class tell the instructor that your breath is the most important part of your practice and they will give you pointers throughout your practice.

    - I'm always trying to find ways for my patients to relax and when I found float tanks I was like this is amazing. I think they are a great way to de-stress and absorb a healthy dose of much needed magnesium (which is also great for stress).

    - Protein intake: aim for a minimum of 30g of protein per day. 10g at all main meals and have nuts or other high protein foods on hand for snack in between. This is important as protein is the base of all cells and you are trying to make a whole lot of cells at the moment.

    - avoid raw, cold and/or processed foods: if you are eating anything cold or raw (ie, salads or juices) add a heating elements such as cinnamon or ginger. Stir flying is great as it breaks down the outside of the veggies without losing to much of their nutrients. Try and cook as many meals as you can so you know exactly what goes into your food. Use food as your bloods medicine, the healthier you eat the more nourishment your body will have to assist with creating new life.

    - to build your blood try and eat foods that are of a dark red, purple or black colour. Kidney beans, goji berries, plums, etc.

    - keep your feet warm: one of the most important channels for reproduction in chinese medicine starts under your feet. So make sure your feet are always covered, especially as it is getting colder in the early mornings and evenings.

    - avoid anything/one that you find is negative or draining (at least for a few weeks). Our mind and body react to this kind of stimulation so avoid the news, t.v/movie dramas or people that exhaust you. Hang out with those that make you laugh and only watch things that are of a comedy nature. This will help your body on a subconscious level. So make sure your feet are always covered.
    Does this mean I have to wear shoes

    @midnite01 good luck for your bt!
    @Twiglets gosh you have been through the mill, make sure you rest up and take it easy
    @Tahli isn't it funny, I had you down as a brunette as well! Stunning and as pp said, don't look a day over 30!

    I wonder how many people we have pictures of in our heads that are completely wrong!

    @winsor You made a comment a few days ago and I forgot to reply, sorry. Yes, I'm mindful that on Warrens protocol I might have a higher chance of success. Lets see how The Three Amigos thaw and go from there. I might only end up with the B3ab to transfer. Being inseminated with fresh DS as well was just one step too far. But would I consider doing it before transferring my final embryo, possibly. Fingers crossed this is my last transfer and I don't have to consider it. Oh, and also, I might get really sick on Warren's protocol and only be able to do a fraction of it so I can't get ahead of myself. Thanks for being my Cautious Angel sitting on my shoulder. @BlondeinBrisvegas however.....

    @Twiglets thanks for the info it's very much appreciated.
    @Tahli I don't know about snake undies or my drawing skills. If snakey from my wall comes back perhaps I should just wear him. Sort of like a chihuahua in a bag minus the chihuahua. Think Paris Hilton. Not sure how it will go down at the airport though.

    @Tahli praying all goes well with your hernia op! And that you recover quickly
    @Blossom74, I agree - talk to FS now and get their opinion as well before weaning off and starting again.
