Nervous- temporarily out of game?

I am in my ivf cycle, had embryo transfer today.

I really need to ensure I eat when hungry, which is constantly from the meds! otherwise I could jeopardize my cycle.

Also no exercise at all for several more days and that started Thursday with my retrieval. After I few days I can only do very light exercise, basically walking at a light pace.

I don't want to blow up now or during pregnancy unnecessarily. No, I am not concerned about weight gain with pregnancy, but I do want to do it safely. Last pregnancy I only gained 16 lbs even though I ate like a cow, did no exercise, and had gestational! I was also heavier than I am now, so I wouldn't be surprised if I gained more. I just don't want to be one of those people who gain 100lbs during pregnancy (no offense if anyone did, but I'm sure you probably wouldn't choose that again if you had a choice!). I just recognize that it is not healthy for me or baby. Anyhow, I guess I am new to pregnant (or soon to be!) and healthy.

Any advice?

Thank you! I was hoping to get some pregnant workout vids once I am released from my dr to do so!

A midwife I know puts it this way:

The weight you gain from healthy, real food, you lose easily.

The weight you gain from junk, you get to keep.

snack on fruits and veggies throught the day.. :) and walk when you can I gained 90 with my first and probably about 50 with my second. I am trying to get into a healthier weight bracket before we start trying for our last. I don't want to blow up either..if you have netflix i am pretty sure they have some prenatal workouts you can do.
