Fertilisation Day

Hi everyone! So I had my egg collection yesterday! I must say I have never been so nervous in all my life! Still feeling a little sore (and a bit strange too, does anyone else feel like that after EC?) however, it all went well and we have got our results back today! There were 12 eggs collected in total, and NINE HAVE FERTILISED!!! we did use ICSI and I am soooo glad we did. We have opted not to have PGS on this cycle. If these transfers do not lead to a pregnancy then we will opt in for PGS at our next cycle, but for now we are riding the wave of excitement! I genuinely thought this would be the hardest part, but I guess in about 4/5 days when the transfer takes place I will be a huge bag of nerves!!! Genuinely DREADING this 2WW which is fastly approaching!

That’s excellent news smithy. Looks like we are in exactly the same boat - I had my EC yesterday too, 13 eggs collected and got the call this morning to say 9 had fertilised too ☺️ so pleased!

Ours was through ivf, not ICSI too.

Fingers crossed for your day 2 call tomorrow to see that your embies are growing well xx

That is amazing congratulations! Good luck for your phone call tomorrow, they have told us to expect our call before 1pm! I'm so pleased I took the rest of the week off work to recover now xxx

My call will be between 9 and 11 tomorrow morning 😬 trying so hard not to get too excited but at the same time, just keeping my body and mind nice and positive and relaxed.

Yes, definitely a good idea having the week off. Best decision I could have made too!

I’m pretty achey still, but resting up with a hot water bottle.

Hope you’re not feeling too bad ☺️ xx

I have been searching high and low for my hot water bottle ALL night last night. Gutted my hubby is at work today as I need a hot drink every 15 mins to keep my belly nice and warm. The waiting inbetween getting information is excruciatingly painful! I am THE most impatient person in the world. Let me know how your embies are growing? will keep me motivated and hopeful! best of luck hun xx

Oh bless you. My hubby has taken this week off with me - he’s telling me off for doing anything that doesn’t involve lying on the sofa 🙄 haha

I know, I’m horribly impatient too. At least it’s not even a week till we get to have the transfer though, thank god ☺️

Oooooh, yes, you keep me posted too. Nice to have a cycle buddy ☺️

Keeping everything crossed for you xx

I must admit, I think we need to swap hubbys! Ah well shouldn't really complain, if I'm gonna be in discomfort id rather do it from my own sofa watching daytime television haha! I'm so excited to have a cycle buddy too! Do you know what day your transfer falls on? My doc reckons Saturday but said he will have a confirmation date tomorrow when he calls. xx

Haha.

Transfer will either be Thursday, Saturday or Sunday. We will know more tomorrow depending on how the embies are doing. Eek, anything can happen at this point 😬

🤞🤞🤞
