Follicles not yet ready...EC delayed

Hey lovelies, so we had another scan today. I couldnt look at the camera the same way after it's been referred to on here as a dildo cam ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

Unfortunately EC not going ahead as planned on tuesday but Ive been given Thursday as a potential new date so fingers crossed it goes ahead then. Thanks to this forum and reading about other people's experiences this didnt come as a huge shock to me & Im thankful for that. I think had it not have been for this forum i would have catastrophised this news at my apt and broke down.

Consultant said some of the follicles are still quite small and they need more time / meds to grow so we were sent off to pharmacy to collect some more. Just hoping we can go ahead on Thursday. There are roughly 4/5 follicles on each side but this includes the small ones so not sure how many eggs i might get.

I definitely feel as though there is pressure in my stomach as if the follicles are getting bigger but maybe thats just wishful thinking!

How is everyone else doing? Xx

Iโ€™m good, we are so excited for this week but also absolutely terrified! We were out for lunch with family today. Stuffed my face so Iโ€™m lying here now with a big full belly. Was nice to get out for a few hours to take my mind off the inevitble. Hopefully itโ€™ll be a fantastic week for the pair of us ๐Ÿ˜˜ x

Aww they know what theyโ€™re doing and with the extra meds then theyโ€™ll pick up soon enough. I had my dose increased because I had only the right ovary that they could see. Fingers crossed for you xx
