EC ✅

Hi guys I had my egg collection this morning and 7 were retrieved which we're really pleased with, they said it's a great number for my age (39) and the fact I have endometriosis. It's also 3 more than last time so that feels nice 😊

I'm feeling more sore & in more pain than my previous retrievals but apparently they had to dig around a bit to get to a couple of them so I'll just be on the couch taking it super easy today and probably tomorrow!

Now the wait for tomorrow's phone call! 😳

Xx

  • Hi Georgina78. Well done, now time for a rest. Take some paracetamol for any pain, unless you have been prescribed anything else. No anti-inflammatories such as ibuprofen. Drink plenty of water too. Fingers crossed for tomorrow. Diane

  • Aww thanks hun, so far I'm still down regulating and am due to go for my first scan this Friday! I have been relaxed this cycle, so much so that my husband and I sometimes forget we need to take injections so are running upstairs at 7.30 lol. I just feel like it's out of my control tbh! And I'm happy that your more relaxed this time around to :) we can't help but get upset at other peoples news :( fingers crossed you will be sharing some news soon xxx

  • Good luck lovely! X

  • Thanks Hun, how's your pregnancy going? Hope you're both well xx

  • Back ache and constipation that's where I'm at! We got more detail last week on our baby's heart - she has a condition called Tetralogy of Fallot - which means surgery definitely between 6 and 12 months old and probably long term follow up - it's not great news but we are lucky to be having her now in this age of modern science and medical knowledge. She won't stop wriggling either which is reassuring and lovely and a wonderful feeling! Xx

  • Aw bless her, and you guys after what you've been through. You have a wonderful attitude though and she's very lucky little lady to have you as her mamma ❤️She sounds like an active little one! Hope the crappy stuff eases off for you xxx

  • I guess we see it as not having a choice - there are plenty of days I'm a blubbering wreck - but whatever challenges she is going to have to deal with she's our daughter first and foremost and we can't wait to meet her 😍 xx

  • Nice to hear from sipidania. U r such awesome person. I'm sure ur baby's d luckiest person to have u. And pray soon everything works out well. Love to d little rightly-wiggly.😘

  • Fantastic number! I have endo too so they could only collect from one side with mine xxx

  • Thanks Sprinkles, I had a couple of follies of a decent size on my left (the defective side!) but I didn't ask if any of the eggs were from that side, didn't think it really mattered! It certainly feels like they've all come from my right though, it's there that all the discomfort is which is a weird feeling when I normally have it all on my left!

    Thank goodness for our 'good' sides! Xx

  • I know, isn't it funny how it's usually worse on one side?! They said with mine they tried to manipulate my tummy to get at the left ovary but just couldn't manage it. Too much scar tissue there I think. They said they could have gone through my womb but as they got 9 eggs from the right they didn't think it was worth risking it. I had a lot of pain a few days after EC on the left where the eggs were 'popping off' on their own, just thought you may have the same issue so get plenty of rest and drinks lots of water xxxx

  • 9 is great for one side, go the right!! 👊🏼 Definitely resting and drinking my body weight in water! Xx

  • Hey Georgina great .

    Well done . Fingers crossed

    Hope everything works out well for u my dear xx

  • Thanks tiger-cub 😘

  • Good luck 😉. Time to put your feet up and relax. xx

  • Thank you, definitely been doing that! Don't feel like I have much choice 😳 Xx
