Well.. There Is no indication for bed rest because of IVF per se... Check with your doctor why have you been advised bed rest...

In ivf cases mostly much care is needed. So consult your doctor. Mine is also a triplet 13 weeks ivf pregnancy. I am also on rest.

I am having single baby. Growing good. All the scan gone good.. heart beat also in good. But doctor says it's for general advise to all to take bed rest for horomone changes. Is it going to job makes horomone change..?

Mine was ivf too. I am now in my 30th week. Through out pregnency dr advice me more rest and less activity. I suggest do as doctor say as ivf itself is difficult procedure. In my 2 trimister i didnt even travel in bus train or auto.

Mamta Goel

Scientifically there is no evidence of any benefit from bed rest... In fact it has negative impacts due to increase stress and anxiety of house arrest... Bed rest used to be advised in 1970's but after; few decades it was found to be useless in fact potentially harmful.. Anyways I attaching few links from very reliable source like NHS UK... Please go through if it can help calm your myths and fears...

Prakee

Thanks​ Dr Mamta Goel mam. Hearing positive to my thoughts make me comfort. I have to read many forums not required for full bed rest. I feel very stressed to being on bed. Just counting the days to join office.
