Personally I wouldn't do anything strenuous like take a spin class or body pump class but I have being going for my regular walks. The only exception was for a few days after transfer as I was exhausted and sore and also just thought it best to rest up.

Sariele - yay! Congrats!!!
Arlais - If you're generally an active person then I think exercise is fine, as long as its not excessive. Some steady cardio and light weights would probably be fine. I asked this when pregnant with DD as I was very active and I was told exercise at my usual level was fine but not to start a new regime/up the intensity while pregnant. If you're at all concerned call your clinic.

Hyaluronan (HA) and Normal Fertilization
A substance called Hyaluronan (HA) is a component of one step during natural sperm selection. Researchers have found that sperm that bind to HA have reduced levels of abnormal DNA and genetic errors (DNA fragmentation and aneuploidy). During natural fertilization the sperm has to bind to a cluster of cells around the egg called the cumulus. Cumulus cells are rich in HA and mature sperm have receptors for HA. Therefore, sperm that are immature are less likely to be able to progress to the next step in the natural selection/fertilization process, and usually only mature sperm are able to fertilize an egg naturally.
Hyaluronan (HA) and Sperm Selection for ICSI
By exposing sperm to HA prior to ICSI we now have a greater ability to select sperm for fertilization that are mature and have the best DNA. As the healthiest sperm bind to the HA we are able to isolate/select them for injecting into the egg. Circumstances where HA-ICSI may be helpful for sperm selection include;
- Where there is high sperm DNA fragmentation
- If during previous IVF there were low fertilisation rates and/or poor embryo development
- If there is recurrent IVF failure or unexplained recurrent pregnancy loss

Thanks JB, this must be called different things at different clinics/states. At Fert North its called PCSI or Physiological Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection. We'll be doing this too. Hear it has great fertilisation rates.

Hi JemB i also have a BT on 3rd of July... and i know exactly how you feel. Its crazy!! I am so tired i can barely stay awake at work. I am on pregnyl every third day and just before i did last injection i did HPT and obvieusly it was positive but i did it for giggles... lol
Honestly - i was so positive last week and i was trying to think this one will work but i am not sure anymore... all that medication can give you false feelings and its cruel really.
I have been having this weird pains in my ankle and above my knee, on day 4 and 5 and it was on and off.. i also have a typical pregnyl and progresterone side effects of pain in overies, bit of cramping. Got sore boobs a bit but obly yesterday. No spotting for me ...i am tired andcant be bothered with eating.. no appetite!!! emotional and all i want to do is go home and sleep. And i wish it was wednesday

Aneczka it's weird how you get to find out on Wed and I have to wait till Friday! I guess it's not too much longer. I haven't POAS yet not sure I will as I don't want the early disappointment if it negative. We're your progesterone levels all good? Mine were 51 on Fri which they said they were happy with.

When I got my BFP all the nurse told me was I had strong levels, now I'm thinking I should ask with all you girls talking about numbers

Sorry Girls, I break this party mood. I had my BT done this morning, it's negative. Just had biggest melt down before. It s so hard to stay positive after negative, negative, and negative.
