EC done ✅

Afternoon everyone, I just thought I would update you and share my news seeing as I can't tell my friends.

But they collected 17 eggs! The clinic have just called to say they have managed to inject 15 of them, which is fantastic news, me and my partner were so shocked, bearing in mind we never got this far last time, the mobility of his sperm isn't great but we're all alive, so the embryologist said that's the good thing with icsi as once they are injected they don't have to move, so fingers crossed now for our next step of our journey, the horrible wait for our next call tomorrow morning to find out how many have actually formed into embryos.

EC wasn't actually as bad as I thought but certainly a little sore this afternoon.

Thank you for listening xxx

  • Hi Emma- Jane that's brilliant news. I has EC yesterday and had 18 follicles. Waiting until 10.30 this morning to contact the clinic to see how many were injected and have survived to this stage. Unfortunately I'm very sore and have had to up my paracetamol to co-codomol. Hoping you get good news and ET goes well for you xxx

  • Wow congratulations to you for getting so many, my clinic said they would call me about 10 ish, I look forward to your up date to see how many embryos you have 🤞🍀

    As for the pain I'm with you in that one, mine got worst through the day once the sedation wore off and I've found using a hot water bottle has worked a treat xxx

  • I'm using a beanie but it's not really helping. DH has gone to work today so hoping I don't get as sick as I did last time round as I've no way to the hospital. Are you also high risk of OHHS? xx

  • Yes I am, they have said drink plenty of water, I wasn't aloud the Diclofenac as I'm allergic so I had only paracetamol for pain!! But I've just been in bed ever since getting home and not moved which has worked a treat.

    I am at higher risk of ohs so just praying that doesn't happen else I will have to wait a month or so for ET! But touch wood so far so good xxx

  • Amazing news so happy for you!! Stay positive 🍀🍀
