Cycle #5 under way

I just thought to update you on my next cycle.
Cycle #4 (the "troubling" one) indeed did not end up in a BFP. Although 6 or 7 days after the IUI I noticed very light pink spotting and I am now SURE it was implantation spotting. I also had this during cycle #1. I am starting to believe my problem is KEEPING the pg, not getting it.
Yesterday I began Gonal-F injections again. I am now doing them sub-cutaneously, so I don't need assistance. It hurts a little bit, but it's much easier than intramuscular. I guess I will have 8 to 12 days of shots (last cycle was 13 days of shots, but I think it was an abnormal cycle) then the trigger shot and IUI.
This is all while waiting for my appointment in July at RMA, where I plan to do IVF unless a miracle occurs first! I just don't want to lose a cycle in the meantime.
Any thoughts on the implantation issue? Should I try bedrest, or near-bedrest, for the SECOND week of the 2ww? I am starting to think the first week is less crucial, since the (hopefully fertilized) egg is just floating around in there, anyway...!
All the best to everyone and baby dust,
