Just a quick one

Home from EC and lying on the sofa. Struggling to keep my eyes open now... all went well I think; 14 eggs collected (though I expected more with the huge number of follicles I had) but they seemed pleased. I have to go back for yet another scan tomorrow because of my OHSS risk. All being well transfer will be Saturday, maybe sooner but it's a wait and see.. I'm a bit crampy and my bum hurts lol, I think the pethadine may be wearing off now.. EC wasn't very nice and they did have to top up my meds but they said I did really well and hey, I survived!! 😊 Now on Estradiol patches and will start vaginal suppositories twice a day from tomorrow xx

Well done! You got through it and your one step closer 😊

For some reason EC is the part I'm dreading most. I was told I'd get a general anaesthetic so don't know if that means wakened or not.

Hope you get as much rest as you can xxx
