Post-IVF Pregnancy: What to Expect During the First Trimester

May 28, 2024

Congratulations on your! Experiencing pregnancy after IVF can bring its own set of emotions and physical changes. During the first trimester, your body undergoes significant changes as it adapts to support the growth and development of your baby. Here's what you can expect during this exciting time:

Book an online appointment with Dr. Meenu Handa for Pregnancy & Gynecology related issues.

Early Pregnancy Symptoms

You may experience fatigue, breast tenderness, nausea (morning sickness), increased urination and mood swings. These symptoms are common due to hormonal changes and are usually temporary.


Your doctor will likely schedule regular check-ups to monitor your pregnancy's progress. These visits may include ultrasounds to confirm the viability of the pregnancy, check for multiple pregnancies (if applicable), and rule out ectopic pregnancy (embryo attachment outside the uterus).


Depending on your specific situation, your doctor may recommend continuing certain medications or supplements to support the pregnancy. These could include prenatal vitamins containing folic acid, progesterone supplements, or other medications to support implantation and early pregnancy.

Risk of Miscarriage

While the risk of miscarriage decreases after the first trimester, it's still important to be aware of the signs, such as vaginal bleeding, abdominal pain, or severe cramping. These symptoms may require medical attention. Please consult your healthcare provider if you experience any of them.

Emotional Rollercoaster

Pregnancy, especially after fertility treatments, can bring a mix of emotions ranging from joy and excitement to anxiety and worry. It's normal to feel overwhelmed at times, so don't hesitate to reach out to your partner, family, friends, or a therapist for support.

Diet and Nutrition

Eating a healthy, balanced diet is essential for your health and the development of your baby. Focus on nutrient-rich foods like fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean proteins and dairy products. Avoid alcohol, raw fish, unpasteurized dairy, and other foods that may pose a risk to the pregnancy.


Staying active during pregnancy is beneficial for your physical and mental well-being. Gentle exercises such as walking, swimming, prenatal yoga, or low-impact aerobics can help alleviate discomfort and prepare your body for childbirth.


Listen to your body and prioritize relaxing when needed. Pregnancy can be exhausting, especially during the first trimester, when fatigue is common. Aim for 7-9 hours of quality sleep per night, and consider taking short naps during the day if possible.
