So far so good... ๐Ÿณ

After egg collection yesterday, had the call from the embryologist this morning and so pleased that it's good news so far.

Out of 26 eggs (thought they'd said 28 yesterday, must've been the drugs ๐Ÿ˜‰) 17 were mature and 16 have fertilised!

Still very aware that things can change at this time and just hoping that a good number of them develop so we have something to transfer or freeze.

Having to closely monitor my fluid balance for the next few days and have appointments booked to check up on me & decide whether it's still safe to go ahead with a fresh transfer.

Good luck to everyone else waiting for news today! ๐Ÿคž๐Ÿป xx

I tried a bit. Still not a huge fan unfortunately but I can manage a bit every now and then if it helps! ๐Ÿ˜‚

Keep it super cold - I think that helps subdue the taste a bit!! Just hold your nose and chug it!!

Thanks. Hope you're ok today. I had horrible cramps whilst in recovery which were so bad they made me feel sick and the nurses on the unit weren't concerned (I don't mean that in a bad way - they were sympathetic about my pain but didn't think it was anything to worry about).

Hope it's a similar thing for you x

Yep I rang the clinic and they said keep taking paracetamol. I'm not worried now. It's just a shock when you're ๐Ÿ˜ด x

Aw that's good. Probably best to just take regular paracetamol for the next couple of days whilst it all settles down. That's what I'm doing.

What's an average number of eggs to be collected?

Reply

Not sure, although I think my number is well above the average number. I had a 'good' response to the stimulation meds due to having polycystic ovaries (although i don't have PCOS).

But with this is the risk of hyperstimulation which can be very dangerous. So I'm under close monitoring. I've been for an appointment today where they do my observations and take blood, and I've had to monitor my fluid balance very carefully since collection. So far I'm doing ok though and should be well enough for transfer on Sunday x

Yep thank you, good news from the embryologist today. 11 of the embryos are developing well, with a couple slightly ahead of expectations. So providing I stay well, hoping the best one will be transferred back on Sunday x

Thank you. No they haven't mentioned freezing any yet. Waiting to see what happens on Sunday I suppose x

Had it done this morning, thanks for asking.

Went well. Had one top grade embryo put back and should hopefully have 6 to freeze ๐Ÿ˜Š
