Egg collection today

I feel so anxious the last scan only showed 3 top runners I'm preying some of the others have caught up.

Also first time having any sort of procedure and I'm terrified white coat syndrome.

I think I've been fairly level headed throughout this whole procedure but the nerves are now really kicking in, not to mention I feel like a huge dairy cow sore boobs and aching stomach hoping today's abdo pain is all normal. Anyway I needed the rant I hop you guys are all ok today and your journeys are going to plan xxxlucy

Yup I will get called tomorrow. How are you feeling? Still in pain? I'm feeling pretty crampy and sleepy. Going to have tomorrow off work and then prob back to work on thurs. Have you got this week off? Xx

Yeah I was surprised how much pain I was in after the procedure I'm still sore today so taking the rest of the week off (holiday) I'm then going to sign myself off all of next week then see if the GP will sign me off for the last week. Are you taking the 2ww off? Xx

Reply

No I think I am going to go back to work for the 2ww. I'm not v good at doing nothing! And my job is fairly desk based. I have to take fragmin injections from tomorrow every eve at 7pm so will be house bound in the evenings. Are you taking Fragmin?xx

Reply

No im not I've got the lovely progesterone suppositories though lol! So we will be in the 2ww together let me know how you get on tomorrow hopefully you will have lots of healthy embryos xx

Reply

Haha I have to do those as well and aspirin and another drug! Glad we are in it together xx

Hi Oliverl, I have 6 good ones which fairly pleased about. Apparently mine are having assisting hatching on Friday and then maybe will have transfer on Friday. How are you feeling? I'm so sore today and now feeling really bloated xx

I got admitted to hospital today with OHSS which is a bummer pain never went after egg Collection and stomach looks like a balloon I'm preying it won't effect transfer but not holding my breath so glad you got 6 xxx

Reply

Poor you, so sorry to hear that. Are you still in Hospital or have you been discharged? Wishing you a speedy recovery xxx

Still here unfortunately I'm not sure what the point in me staying in is as I'm not having anything done. I think I just need to have a scan tomorrow to see what my ovaries are doing. Hopefully they can get some advice of my consultant as reproductive medicine is a bit of an individual nece (spelt wrong lol) so I'm hoping she'll advise I can go home xx
