Egg collection sat morning excited & scared ! 😊

Hi everyone had another scan today and there are 4 folicles above 14 and 3 folicles over 20 odd so they may be over mature but they will still collect anyway so relieved its not being cancelled as one nurse made out to me on Sunday leaving me distraught and was told today she was reported by the nurse i seen today and tuesday as she can't go on to put people down in such a delicate emotional time.

fingers crossed they get a couple ! Xxx

Hi, that all sound positive they like them to be between 18-24 so having 3 @ 20 sounds just what they are looking for! I had EC on Monday and I was so scared but honestly for me it was the easiest part of the journey! I felt a little tender afterwards and next day but it's just like bad period cramps nothing paracetamol can't handle! Good luck with it all but sounds like your on a good path! X

With my egg collection they popped the drugs in my hand and then I woke up in the recovery room with no idea what happened I was amazed - all that worry and it was fine! You'll do great and just concentrate on a lovely week off work to relax xxx

That sounds positive. Good luck for Saturday! I had my EC on Tuesday and didn't find it too bad - just a little sore and tired for a couple of days but nothing major.

I had my embryo transfer this afternoon and couldn't believe how quickly it is done! I was in an out of the clinic in about half an hour including a consultation with the doctors etc!

I didn't realise quite how draining the whole process is until I relaxed when I got home this afternoon and I've been sparko ever since!

Good luck with it and keep us posted x

Im not sure yet they said they are going to let me know how they go find out at 11 in the morning i haven't got anything planned like acupuncture wanted to but just didn't end up booking it. Is this your 1st IVF ? Xx

IVF number 8! The 6th round worked despite having only 1 follicle (1egg). She's now 2 years. Round 7 ended in early miscarriage 2 follicles (3 eggs, 2 were a bit small). Round 8 is our final go, if little madam is meant to have a sibling, this is it! It took 6.5 years to get her as we only had 1 go on the NHS.
