Hi ladies just wanted to share I have my EC today and am feeling a little nervous but not as bad as cycle 1 as I know what to expect. At my last scan on Sat (today is mon) I had over 30 viable follicles so they're a little worried about risks of OHSS which is what is worrying me. I took a half dose trigger shot to reduce that risk. I'm the size of a house and really looking forward to removing some of the pressure going on in my tummy. We have been told that 30 follicles doesn't mean a huge number of eggs... it could be half or less. Cycle 1 I had approx 15 follicles with 9 eggs (EC was stopped before the end as my drugs wore off) and from those 4 fertilised. Here's hoping for the same or better results.... but I know it only takes 1 little egg to work. 😊 Last time I had 15 days of stims before EC but this time I've had 10.
If anyone has any tips for avoiding OHSS or helping it (other than drinking copious amounts of water which I'm doing) that would be great! X
Anyway GOOD LUCK 🍀🍀🍀 to all of you lovely ladies having your EC this week. If it's your 1st time don't worry, it's really not as bad as you expect just uncomfortable and remember it's all for the best reason in the world!!!!💕💕💕
See you on the other side!!
