To be really furious about this?

I had my frozen embryo transfer for the final part of this IVF round today. I've been isolating to keep safe and make sure my body is in the best position possible to support a pregnancy.
Anyway, for tea my husband went to cook the chicken sausages he bought from Morrisons yesterday (7th April) and noticed that they went out of date on the 3rd of April! Close escape right? Wrong, because I'd already eaten some for lunch yesterday 😢when they were 4 days out of date!
I'm so fuming and worried that I'm going to get food poisoning and risk the success of the pregnancy. So I suppose I'm asking AIBU to be really angry. And if I was going to get food poisoning would I have started to feel ill already? I'm so so worried! Please advise.

I understand you feel anxious, but given you feel just fine, you’re wasting your much needed energy by ‘fuming’.
If you were going to get ill, you’d know by now. These things do not waste time. 12 hours and you’re up-chucking IF it’s going to happen.

from a fellow IVF warrior.
Nothing that you eat/ don't eat, do/ don't do will affect your little embryo. They are safe and comfy-cosy up there. Any medical professional would tell you this.
I had a nervous breakdown following my embryo transfer and ended up medicated. I didn't eat or sleep for so long. That little embryo is lying asleep next to me now.
My fingers are crossed for you.

You'd have noticed if they were bad
The use by date is always a cautious date rather than an exact science
You would have l known by now if you had food poisoning
Food poisoning likely wouldn't affect your IVF chances anyway
I've also had IVF and I'm due to have a FET soon so I know how it can be. Wishing you the best of luck! 🤞

Wow - some people really don’t understand how hard it is to go through IVF. I completely understand why you feel the way you do OP. You invest so much in a round of IVF, and it really takes its toll emotionally. It’s no wonder that you feel anxious about something like this. As previously stated I think you would have felt poorly by now if you were going to be - but your feelings are perfectly valid and understandable. I really hope this all goes wee for you and that you get the happiest possible outcome :) xx

Thanks ☺️I think the hormones are playing with my rationality! The sacrifices we make going through IVF can me scared at the very first sign of trouble!
