All set for EC friday 👍😀

Hi everyone 😃

Had my last scan, lining is 10mm and I've got 22 follicles in total with 7 looking a good size to have a mature egg so I'm all set for EC on friday eeeeeek

Just read the admissions info and it says no gel nails which I totally forgot about so I'm off to get that taken off, I dont mind no make up but I'll feel naked with no nails on haha

Feeling positive as this time last cycle we had to do an extra 3 days stimms and also i know the EC procedure isnt scary and ypi get good sedation drugs 😛 xx

Oh fab it will be nice to have someone at the same stage to share the jorney with 😃 did they tell you how many looked big enough for a mature egg to be in the follicle? The consultant said my big ones are supressing the smaller ones, big bullies lol xx

No they didn't? Should they have done? I know quite a few of mine were over 20mm? And only a few were under 10mm? And the rest were inbetween. It's exciting isn't it all off a sudden it's just come around!!!!

Have my pregnancy blood test form for 26th Feb - I am going to try my hardest to hold out until then! 😊 X

I don't think it's necessary to know especially when you have that many 😃 they're bound to get plenty of eggs. My OTD should be the 26th too, last time I tested early but my DH has made me promise to wait this time xx

Thanks so much 💖 how many of your lovely eggs fertilised? I bought some new pjs to put on tomorrow when i get home 😊 and will send my DH for food while I'm in. How do you feel today?xx

I got 17 out of 25 of my eggs fertilised today which I am so pleased about. I've been booked for Embryo transfer next Monday which means my transfer will be done on day 5 at the blastocyst stage. Hopefully a good number of the embryos will make it till then so we can freeze some too! Fingers crossed! :)

Today I was still a bit sore from EC and therefore had to take it easy. Slowly getting back to normal though and looking forward to a nice weekend before ET! :p Have a good rest before the big day tmrw! x

Fingers and toes crossed!!! Yes I'm hoping to have a few to freeze... but you never know... so as long as we get one healthy one for transfer on Monday I will be pleased :)

How do you calculate OTD? Nobody actually told me when it'd be...
