Egg collection ✅


So after a few disappointing scans and egg collection being postponed from Monday because of the size of my follicles I eventually had egg collection today.

I had massive anxieties about egg collection especially fearing I would be awake through the procedure but I shouldn't have worried one minute I was awake next I could hear a nurse saying my name and it was all over. I had a bit of pain and discomfort afterwards but codeine and paracetamol sorted that out.

They retrieved 15 eggs which I'm really pleased about and now we are anxiously waiting for the call tomorrow to find out how many, if any have fertilised 🤞

I have been told to keep an eye out for symptoms of OHSS as I was the high end of "normal"and I do feel bloated tonight but thinking it's more wind than anything sinister as I haven't eaten or moved around much today.

Just had the call from embriologist out of the 15 eggs collected, 12 were mature and as of this morning 5 have fertilised. Embriologist said this was a good number from a retrograde sample.

Will get another call on Saturday with an update it's very unlikely all 5 will make it but she's positive at least 1 will make it to 5 days.
