Ultrasounds and the Stirrups

Socks, socks, socks! Prior to your IVF cycle, you probably have never had so many vaginal ultrasounds in your life. Undressing from the waist down to prepare for the vaginal ultrasound will become second nature to you during your IUI/IVF cycle monitoring. Remember to bring a pair of sock for the stirrups to keep your feet warm and make yourself as comfortable as possible. Your skin will be sore from the shots, your abdomen will feel bloated, and you probably won’t feel like yourself as your hormones are completely out of whack. The last thing you need irritating you is cold feet in the metal stirrups so bring socks!
