EC went smoothly

Hello all,

Just had my EC yesterday and it went really well. The sedation put me to sleep and I woke up back in the ward with a cosy nice feeling. So relieved it went well, as I'd never had an op before. It's been sore with cramps since but nothing too bad, paracetamol has helped. Lots of sleep and rest helps too. This morning got the call to say out of the 13 eggs, 7 have fertilised!! We are set to go in on sunday for the 5 day ET. So happy that it's all moving well. Thankful I'm off work all week to recover and rest.

All the best to everyone, golden baby dust to all. xxx

Hi all,

The ET went well on sunday thanks. They also got 3 frozen embryos to store. It was sore, but only briefly and then they showed us the embryo on the big screen. Then they show you the moment when the embryo goes into yr tummy, like a shooting star on the screen. Have had some small cramps and bloating since then. Fingers crossed.

Official test day is next wed 5th, counting the minutes. All best wishes to everyone.

Take care, xxx
