Probably not: Probably should not have gas after an embryo transfer but if you were anxious leading up to the procedure, which is completely understandable and expected, you might have done a little month breathing and got some extra air in your stomach that you are now passing. I would not worry to much. Good luck and i hope this helps.

Good latch: Making sure your baby has a good latch so they aren't gulping air will help. That being said some babies are "gulpers" and swallow lots of air no matter how good the latch is.

What is the fetal fibronectin test?

Dr. David Finke
Obstetrics and Gynecology 15 years experience
To rule out PTL.: Fetal fibronectin is a protein that is thought to be the "glue" connecting the baby's amniotic sac to the wall of the mom's uterus. In preterm labor, this glue breaks down and leaks out into the vagina. The fetal fibronectin test checks for the presence of this protein in the vagina. If the test is negative, preterm labor (ptl) is unlikely. If the test is positive, it doesn't mean much.

Is internal fetal monitoring require an invasive procedure?

Yes: Internal monitoring requires that the bag of water is broken. If it is intact, the doctor will break the bag of water with a tiny plastic hook. If contractions need to be monitored, a small plastic tube (iupc) is slid into the uterus, it gets squeezed during contractions and monitors intensity. If the baby needs to be monitored a small heart rate monitor is attached to the baby's scalp.
