- NO ALCOHOL. Whatevs. I had a drink now and then up to the insemination day.
- Decrease caffeine intake. Whatevs. I drink a latte in the morning. What am I supposed to do--drink half a latte?
- No strenuous exercise. Whatevs. I continued my not particularly grueling workout routine until the insemination day.
(Am I jumping the gun here a bit by contemplating this? Yes, but that's how I work. )
Anyway, I don't think the failure of IUIs 1-4 had anything to do with those bullet points from my clinic checklist. But, here's the plan for this cycle:
- NO ALCOHOL. NO ALCOHOL.
- Decrease caffeine intake. Half a latte.
- No strenuous exercise. No strenuous exercise.
