My first pregnancy I did daily yoga, meditation, ate super healthy, no booze, had massages, acupuncture - the works.
Lost that pregnancy unfortunately, and then went straight to another transfer - so my second transfer was preceded by drinking every night, eating like ****, stressing and crying a lot.
I'm 26 weeks with that little kicky man
What I find helped me deal with it mentally and helps me when thinking about friends on the IVF journey, is what my FS said - every pregnancy, every embryo is different.
Different sex maybe, different combo of genes, different timing... I have a lot of faith in that, it seems from the success rates of both IVF and natural fertility, once you've ruled out anything practically that might hinder success like blocked tubes or endo, its about the numbers game and hoping you win the lottery (which frankly sometimes seems like it would be easier than getting pregnant through IVF).
Thats what helped me at least in the first trimester - just telling myself that this was a totally different little creature with its own unique ability.
hope that helps someone.

My first fet I didn't drink in the month leading up to transfer, avoided pasta, potatoes etc and ate pineapple core after transfer. Bfn. 2nd transfer I drank occasionally, the day before transfer had a big glass of red and ate pasta, didn't eat pineapple core and bfp. I know everyone says relax and its hard to....I actually had a beer two days before my bfp as I was so sure it hadn't worked so who knows. ...was I more relaxed cos I thought it hadn't worked or had gone into it thinking it wouldn't work as the first one hadn't? (with ivf I think its very easy to get caught up in the what ifs). I did have acupuncture both times. I think do what feels right to you.....if you want to try everything because then you have the mindset that at least you tried everything then do that. If you want to be more relaxed then do that. I personally think its down to the right embryo at the right time but good luck regardless xx
