Trigger tomorrow, EC on Monday ๐Ÿ˜Š

Hi All,

Had final monitoring scan this morning and we've been given the go ahead to trigger (buserelin) tomorrow for collection on Monday.

Follicles looking good, at least 9 already at 18mm and several more very close so hopefully we'll get a decent number. Only slight concern was my lining only measured 6.7 today - it was 8mm on Wednesday. The nurse assured me it was probably nothing to worry about but I can't help feeling a bit anxious - I will be trying as many of the 'old wives tale' remedies as possible over the weekend and keeping everything crossed! Any tales of reassurance gladly received ๐Ÿ˜Š

Thanks x

Iโ€™ve just had my egg collection this morning. Your stats look good. Apparently raspberry leaf tea is very good for lining and things can change very quickly for the better with this process. My lining went from 10-13 in 2 days. Good luck!

Thank you, that's really reassuring! I hope your collection went well and you're not too sore. Good luck for the next few days x

That's great news about the eggs!! It's impossible not to feel anxious during this process but if your lining isn't looking good they might well be able to do a freeze all cycle and transfer another cycle when you're not all messed up with all the stimulation drugs. So don't stress too much, one way or another it'll work out, you just might need to wait a little longer. Best of luck xxx

Thank you - I'm trying to prepare myself for the eventuality of having to freeze all, even though it may well not happen. As my mum pointed out earlier its a lot like big spiders in the bath - if I know they are there I can deal with them but if they take me by surprise my knees go all wobly and I feel a bit sick. I think I'm trying to say I like to be prepared for everything ๐Ÿคฃ

I havenโ€™t got to that stage either, so I canโ€™t help with any stories or information but thatโ€™s a great number of eggs. All the best for your egg collection and the rest of your journey!! Xx

Red raspberry leaf tea! I also had trouble with my lining whilst going through ivf..it seems to be highly recommend so worth a go! X
