Treatments you tried before IVF: None -- we went straight to egg donation

Complimentary treatments (acupuncture, massage, etc.) None, but I gave up all sugar and caffeine at least a month before each attempt.
How many days bedrest (if any): 2-3, then easy-does-it for a few more.
How many and quality/rating of embryos/blasts transferred: 2, 2, and 3
Symptoms or issues during your successful 2WW: None at all this time, and it was completely unnerving.

Advice for those going through FET now: Patience and faith...
