EC on Monday πŸ˜ƒ HCG question

β€’25 Replies

Hi ladies I had my second stims scan today and the follies have been cooking up nicely so I'm all set for Monday EC πŸ‘πŸΌ Can't believe we've actually made it this far! The nurse told me to do my HCG injection at 11:30pm Saturday with EC booked for 11:30am on Monday morning, then I'm sure she said so that they're 12 hours apart. But surely that would be 36 hours unless I'm meant to do HCG on Sunday night. Can I double-check with you all whether Saturday night sounds about right for HCG if EC is Monday or has she told me the wrong day? Sorry for asking a daft question but I don't want to mess it up having come this far. Thanks so much xx

Hi! Oh good luck I have my EC on Tuesday πŸ˜„ . If it helps the nurse told me to have my HCG on Sunday at 9pm with my op planned for 8.30am on the Tuesday. Feels a bit surreal that we now got to the EC stage, exciting and scary. Hope all goes well for you x

Thanks LillieF all the best for Tuesday πŸ€ Xx

I'm pretty sure Saturday is correct, but I'd need to check my paperwork. I remember them saying to me that you'd get 1 whole day off from having to do any injections before collection.

Are they there on a Saturday? Might be worth putting your mind at ease, it's not worth the additional stress X

Thanks Hollibob. I'll called the hospital to double-check and it is right that it's Saturday night so 36 hours before EC. I'm glad I checked as its one less thing to worry about. Hope all's well with you xx

I posted before seeing this reply from you lol

I just had my transfer this morning. Soooo exciting πŸ˜¬πŸ˜€πŸ˜

Mine was on sat night at 11pm for EC mon morning at 11am. But best to phone them if you can, I'm sure they're probably there on a sat and better to hear it from the pros! Good luck x

Thanks DC5867, yep just called them and it is Saturday night for Monday EC. I'm now reassured! πŸ˜‰ Xx

Mine was at 8.30pm the Monday evening with EC at 8.30am on the Wednesday. It's worth checking as the others said to stop you fretting. Good luck! Xx

Thanks Daisy14 Ive just called the hospital and it is tonight for wed EC. I'm second guessing myself on everything these days, there's just so much riding on it all! Good luck for ET πŸ€πŸ€πŸ‘πŸΌ xx

I imagine they are used to us checking and double checking. It's a massive deal isn't it and such responsibilty to do everything perfectly!

Thank you and good luck for EC xx


Hi, it's definitely 36 hours you need. I did mine at 2145 and was in for collection at 0815 on the Monday. Good luck

If you're in any doubt you should phone them but I was 36 hours xx

Thanks Hidden I did the injection as planned so that's it now, ready for EC tomorrow πŸ˜ƒπŸ€πŸ€πŸ€ xx

Great πŸ‘πŸΌ

Good luck. EC was totally fine, don't remember a thing from when I went to theatre and only mild cramping afterwards so don't worry about anything

Thanks Hidden Good luck with ur 2ww, hope it flies with a lovely BFP at the end πŸ‘πŸΌ xx

Hidden in reply to CheshireKit

Thank you πŸ’•

That sounds right. The HCG needs to be do everything exactly 36hrs before EC (Unless told otherwise). 12 hrs wouldn't be long enough. Good luck tomorrow xx

Thanks Kat9lives. Did the injection last night as instructed It felt quite momentous! πŸ˜‰ Hope ur doing well xx

Yes it's a big step! EC now! Have you got some time off to rest afterwards? All ok with me thanks lovely...just been away for a few days in Prague with my mum x

Well I'm working from home on Tuesday so I can be comfy if I'm not feeling too clever and then I'm planning to have time off after ET so I can relax and rest then (fingers crossed we get to that stage!) Hope you had a fab time in Prague πŸ‘πŸΌ xx

Just wanted to wish you luck for tomorrow!!xx

Thanks Cinderella5 😘 Hope ur re-scan goes well πŸ€πŸ€πŸ€ xx

Good luck for tomorrow lovely xx
