EC Done!!

Ok so I'm not going to lie, I was terrified and it was awful. The sedation did nothing for me, I was wide awake and aware of everything. Very very uncomfortable and they increased my pain relief and sedation several times but it made no difference :( however it wasn't as bad as I had expected, no sharp pain just A LOT of pressure!!

9 eggs collected so I'm feeling very happy!! Xx
