Hey guys, I had my first ever Egg Collection today, and I must say, I built it up to be a lot worse than it was.
When I went in, they gave me a gown and a hair net, I popped them on and waited a little while to be taken. Then they took me through to the theatre, I sat down in the chair with my feet in stirrups, then they popped the needle in my hand and off I went to sleep. Next thing I knew, I was back in the recovery ward. I was really panicking about the sedation because I've had sedation before for another procedure and I remember the whole thing, but this was completely different. I didn't feel or hear a thing.
When I came round, I felt fine and got some toast and tea. Then on the walk back to the car, I started getting stomach cramps. They weren't the best, but once I got home and got a hot water bottle and a make shift bed on the sofa, I felt a lot better. The nurse said before I left that they "got 9", but I have no idea if that's eggs or follicles. I'll find out what the situation is tomorrow.
I just wanted to ease anyone else that might be about to go through this!
