Hi Sara Q!
First of all, good luck with everything! I really hope everything goes wonderful for you. As for my thoughts on flyin...if you would have asked me 3 months ago, I would have probably said "sure, fly back the day after ER, you rest on the plane anyways, check your bags, good to go"¨ This works of course if everything goes smoothly and there are no problems. I recently had a trip from HELL about a month ago (not related to IF, just in general) where I got bumped from 2 flights, then delays due to weather and maintenance, and then I had to stay overnight, got on a new plane next day, that plane had a stop (my original flight was non-stop), then that plane got delayed due to weather, I thought "OMG what if this were after an ET...there is no way I could handle this" I had to stand at the counter for SIX hours to try to get them to work with me (yes, SIX hours!!!!). You are probably okay flying the day after, as long as you don't have any problems getting back, which you never go until you get there. After my experience from hell, I said I would never fly back the day after an ET just to be on the safe side, because the last thing you need is more stress and to deal with a huge crisis the day after ET. Of course, this could all happen to you regardless (even after bedrest and everything), but I guess at least at that point youˇ¦ve done the bedrest and distanced yourself a few days from ET to your travel date. I agree with you that flying is stressful enough, I know last IVF I traveled after 2 days bedrest, and I still feel like I "overdid" it somewhat with all the walking at the airport, I had super horrible cramps and ended up asking for preferential boarding assistance and the cart anyway
All this said, I do think as long as you donˇ¦t run into problems, you are probably fine flying back:)
Good luck! I am excited to see your updates and how things go. I am hopefully starting a cycle this week, as long as my cyst is gone! So I am right behind you
