No vacuuming allowed

I forgot to mention my favorite part of IVF: my 10 lb weight lifting restriction that started after 6 days of stimming and continues for a week or two after retrieval. My nurse was giving examples of what was too much weight. For example, a vacuum creates 25  lbs of suction, so she said no vacuuming! And a wet pile of laundry weight 20 lbs, so no laundry :) All of this was said in front of my husband, which was great!


  1. This is certainly an upside for the whole process! Here's hoping that things go smoothly for you and the housework ban is the first of many good things to come! Best wishes!

  2. B carried in the groceries and took out the trash! win!
