EC disappointment πŸ˜”

Had my EC this morning and they only managed to get 6 eggs, i know it only takes 1 but I can't help feeling disappointed in myself as last year I got 11.

I know all I can do is wait for the call tomorrow to find out about fertilisation. The consultant who did EC wasn't happy with the fluid still so will re scan before ET to make her own decision.

In a bit of pain as my left ovary sits awkwardly and it was difficult to get to so for now il have cuddles with my pups on the sofa and let my hubby look after me 😴

  • Hi hun

    Sorry your feeling a bit down and disappointed. I don't know much about what your going through so won't comment. Just wanted you to know I'm thinking of you and hope your pain subsides soon. Wishing you all the best and hope you start feeling positive soon πŸ€—πŸ˜˜

  • Thank you lovely, had a good sleep this afternoon and feeling a little more human lol x

  • Bless, ya. That's nice to know xx

  • 6 is still a brilliant number Hun, it's horrible waiting for the call, wishing you lots and lots of luck πŸ€πŸ€ xx

  • Thank you, I know I hate this bit xx

  • Good luck hun, fingers crossed there are 6 good ones sending you lots of luck for the call xx

  • Thank you xx

  • Hi. I had 6 collected and felt the same.

    Keep positive ... 4 fertilised for me, 2 frozen and 2 transferred.

    And ... although tested 5 days early I have had a positive .

    Positive thoughts and lots of luck to you πŸ€

  • Congratulations! That definitely feels me with hope, the clinic were pleased with the number but i knew id feel like this if it was less than last year x

  • Lots of luck to those six, everything crossed one of them is the lucky one ☝️ xxx

  • Thank you, I hope so xx

  • I think it's harder when you have something to compare it to - but I know they often say quality over quantity so here's hoping your 6 are top notch and lead to a successful outcome for you! Fingers crossed you have good news in the morning. Enjoy cuddles and getting hubby to run around after you - you've earned it! X

  • Thank you. Definitely I always knew this would be my biggest problem I'd compare this cycle to last - I'm trying to think well I had 11 last cycle but known of them worked so maybe fewer numbers will mean better quality. The things our minds do to us x

  • Sorry to hear you are feeling down. 6 is a fab number, hope you have had a cosy afternoon and enjoy snuggles with hubby and the pups. xxx

  • Thank you xx

  • Please god those 6 are all super quality and fertilise and give you some good embryos , fingers and toes crossed. This waiting the worst bit X

  • Thank you, I know I hate this bit always knew I'd find myself disappointed if it wasn't as many but hopefully this time it's quality over quantity 🀞x

  • Do they call you tomorrow to let you know? Xx

  • Yeah they will to let me know about fertilisation and then they'll decide on a day 3 or 5 transfer depending on how many/quality of embryos xx

  • So same as last time ? Well as silly as it sounds I hope you manage to get some rest tonight and you get good news in your call Tom. Be sure to let us know X

  • Yeah only real difference this time in the fluid, if they scan before ET and aren't happy they won't go ahead. Thank you, I will do x

  • You did well. Take it easy xx

  • Thank you xx

  • Ah Hun sending you hugs today, I know that feeling. It sucks. However 6 is good! You're still in the game, try to be strong and see what news tomorrow brings. I'll be thinking of you xxx

  • Thank you xx

  • Remember quality not quantity. Good luck x

  • Very true, thank you x

  • Lots of luck for those precious 6! 6 is still a good number hunni! Everything crossed for tomorrow!! Quality over quantity! Hope you have had a lovely rest with pups and hubby looking after you xxx

  • Thank you, that's what I'm trying to tell myself all about the quality xx

  • I remember waking up from the anaesthetic and the nurse told me they had got 4 eggs, from 5 follicles. I was distraught, I cried my eyes out when I told my husband..... but.... the following morning the phone call came..... all 4 had fertilised....we cried!

    Every day that passed we waited for our update....and each day that passed all 4 were still fighting

    On day 5, we only had 1 survivor..... that was 3 weeks ago.... that 1 survivor, is still going.

    Keep hope, do not give up x

  • Thank you for sharing that has definitely given me hope. I know you only need 1, I just keep comparing it to my last cycle which I knew would be my biggest battle xx

  • Don't be disappointed Hun. It's quality over quantity! And that is so true. 🀞🏻for all to fertilise successfully x

  • Thank you, I really hope it's a good number tomorrow x

  • 6 is still a really good number and remember it only takes 1. Got everything crossed for you πŸ€žπŸ€πŸ€žπŸ€ xxx

  • So true, just got to keep telling myself that. Thank you xx

  • Sorry to hear you got fewer eggs then last time and that you have fluid still. But 6 eggs is still good and hopefully you will get a good fertilisation rate and lots of lovely embies. Got my fingers crossed for you. Xxx

  • Thank you xx

  • You popped into my head today at work and I was wondering how you got on. 6 is the magic number, keep the faith. And in the meantime, rest and recover. Keeping everything crossed for you. Xx

  • Ah thank you, I know the clinic and my hubby were pleased with 6 - just typical me always putting more pressure on myself xx

  • I'm sorry you're feeling down, the waiting is just the worst about every stage of this process. I hope you're okay! Let us know how your 6 eggs do, I'll pray for strong ones πŸ’ͺ🏼πŸ’ͺ🏼πŸ’ͺ🏼πŸ’ͺ🏼πŸ’ͺ🏼πŸ’ͺ🏼 xxx

  • Thank you, I know I hate the waiting think it's actually the worst bit of all this even though I should be use to is by now lol I will do xx

  • Hi,

    Just wanted to offer reassurance, my first cycle I got 9 eggs, 6 mature and had my son first try. I recently had another fresh cycle, the consultant upped my drugs going on about wanting me to produce more, well I got 22, only 6 fertilised and they were not great quality at all! Yet I'm 11 weeks pregnant so it really does take 1! Xx

  • Thank you all, had a call this morning to say 5 eggs had fertilised and there aiming for a day 5 transfer so finger crossed they all make it to Saturday and so do I lol xx

  • Wonderful news x

  • Fantastic xxx

  • Sending u lots of love xxx
