20 eggs fertilised! Praying for no ohss

Hi everyone

I had EC yesterday. 29 eggs collected 24 good for icsi and 20 have fertilised. I'm clearly very happy with results and will be transferring Wednesday. However I'm so worried about ohss. I know I am at high risk and the hospital told me to inform them if I start to feel unwell. So I'm just writing to see if anyone had a high number of eggs collected and didn't end up with ohss x

I only had 14 but I was borderline OHSS. Drink lots of water. My clinic had me weigh myself daily and take measurements of my waist to check there were no drastic changes. If you start vomiting or get migraines or a fever, shortness of breath then call your gp. Otherwise just keep a close eye on it x

Wowsers that's amazing. Keep a close eye on yourself, fingers crossed that you stay well and don't develop ohss xx

Amazing results, rest up and drink loads of water! I had 9 collected from the right side as they couldn't get to the left one because of scar tissue. I didn't get OHSS but did get a lot of pain when the eggs on the left side eventually released on their own a day or two later xxxx

Wow, fantastic number! This is my first cycle so I don't have any advice but I'm sure lots of ladies will share their experiences to reassure you. Good luck for the next steps! Xxx
