At GRI i was up within a minute, i almost felt like i had been chucked out the door
i know in reality research suggests there is no benefit to lying down afterwards, but it would have made me feel like i was doing my bit even if i could have had 5 mins. To be honest i was a bit taken a back when the transfer was done, i still felt very uncomfortable from the EC so the ET was just a horrible sensation
i didn't know what i was letting myself in for, so there i was legs akimbo, then a horrid sensation and then the nurse takes my arm and pulls me up off the bed
i was then taken in to the recovery room and sat down on a chair, one of the other wee nurses, that i got to know and was really nice, walked past and asked if i was ok, as did DH apparently i was just sitting there with a total look of shock on my face!
and i was shocked i just remember thinking "what the hell was that" i think i actually needed 5 mins of lying down time just to get over the shock, never mind to help the embies.
