Feeling absolutely terrified for egg collection tomorrow after our failed ICSI in feb where we had no fertilisation from 7 eggs. Had my scan on sun and there where 17 follicles (10 at the right size and others almost there. 🤞🤞🙏🙏 we have some fertilisation this time 🥴
Egg collection after 1st failed ICSI - Fertility Network UK

Hello, I’ve got my first egg collection on Friday and I’m scared too. It must be so awful to get past egg collection and not get to transfer. It has been one of my biggest fears! Sounds like you’ve got a great number of follicles at the right size though! More than me although I get scanned again tomorrow 🤞🏼. Wishing you all the luck in the world! 🍀🍀🍀
Hey, thanks, yes I was devastated but have to keep positive. 😊 Just hoping their better quality than last time.
Hope everything goes ok on Friday and I will keep everything crossed for you 🤞🤞 xxx
Hope EC goes well for you... I was so nervous before mine. Good luck 😉
Thanks so much xx it’s awful isn’t it! I’ve actually felt sick for days thinking about what if the same happens again. I think my darling husbands ready to throttle me 🙄 xx
I think watched too much YouTube prior to the procedure and had such high expectations of double figures. Also my scans every other day showed 15 good sized follies.
I actually bursted into tears when I came around and was told only 7 collected.
However 6 fertilised and 5 made it to good quality blasts. Ended up being so pleased with the results.
Keeping my fingers crossed for you both that you get what you need to have a successful cycle this time x
Awh that’s great news x mine where just crap quality last time even with 7 so I’m hoping the change in drugs/all the supplements have helped 🥴
Are you in your 2 Ww now? Xx
Yep 6dpt and it’s going so slowly.... today has been the worst of all😩I had spotting/bleeding which was minimal at first... but now I’m unsure if its my AF💔
Good luck for your collection. I am in exactly the same boat, egg collection today and I have had about an hours sleep. Let’s hope it’s a good day for both of us. 🙏 x
Me too! How did you get on, keeping everything crossed for you 🤞🤞 xxx
They managed to get 12 eggs which at 40 with AMH of 6 I am happy with, just hoping they are good quality. The bad news is our cycle has been cancelled due to lining issues and got to get referred to Gynaecology again so pretty gutted. Just praying they fertilised and we have something to freeze. X
Wow that is a fantastic number! I’ll keep absolutely everything crossed for you 🤞🤞 it may seem like a pain having to wait for your lining to come up but atleast your little embies will be in the best environment possible 😊😊 xxx
I hope so, just praying that they are mature, fertilise and are good enough for freezing. It’s such a waiting game x hope your feeling ok
Wishing you all the best for egg collection! It is so nerve racking starting again after a disasterous cycle - we got past egg collection, fertilisation to have nothing to transfer in cycle 1.....didnt even know that could happen and was devastated. However what I will say is that my cycle afterwards went much better so things can be different. Good luck.xx
Thanks lovely ladies xx Cinderella that’s good to hear you had better rounds after the first.
They managed to get 9 eggs, they said there was a possibility of no fertilisation again but the embryologist said she would ring me this afternoon to tell me how many eggs are mature enough to proceed with ICSI as most of mine last time where immature. I can’t help but think the worse x
How many eggs fertilised?
Sending you all the best wishes.
🤞for lots of fertilisation xx
Hope everything went well today!! Been thinking of you🤞🏻
Awh thank you that’s very kind. Just 💩 myself for tomorrow!
How are your little embies doing? Xxx
I’m sure you’ll get some great numbers 🤞🏻 we still have 11, 7 are grade 1 which at our clinic is the highest, then the others are lower but still progressing. Find out another update in the morning as I have a provisional transfer day 3 tomorrow but hoping to push for day 5 instead 💕 hope the call is the news you want in the morning x
Thanks, I’m hoping so. 🙏.
Wowzers you have got fantastic numbers there! Hopefully you will have lots to freeze too xx
Stay positive, everything crossed for you. 🤞🏻😘
🤞🤞 just waiting for the call 🙄. Thank you xx
I just had the call out if 12 eggs, 8 were mature and 6 have fertilised with icsi. Not sure if this is good or not. 🤞for your call today x
Wow I’m soooo happy for you 😃😃😃😄 out of my 9, 6 have fertilised! We have the same number 😄 xx
Hope you have both had positive progress overnight xx
Thank you. Won’t find out till tomorrow. I’m a bag of nerves. Have you had another up date about yours ? Xx
No news today but booked in for a day 5 fresh transfer tomorrow so hope they have cooked nicely this last couple of days 🤞🏻
This really is the hardest part isn’t it x
They said they will ring me tomorrow. Maybe it’s because I am freeze all?
Oh yes that’s prob why xx let me know how you get on xx
Hi hun, how are you getting on? Have you heard from the clinic? I’m still waiting and my anxiety is through the roof x
Hey lovely,Oh god it’s a bloody horrible feeling isn’t it! I literally nearly vomited when they rang!
5 out of my 6 embryos are developing well so I’m booked in for a 5 day transfer on mon 🤞🤞🤞
Did they not ring u yesterday? I’m sure everything will be absolutely fine but I totally understand your anxiety xxx
They literally called as I finished typing. They called yesterday to say we unfortunately lost one but the other 5 looked good, today all looks good, we have 2 grade 1 and 3 grade 2 and the quality looks good. Hoping all are good enough to freeze Monday. Transfer on Monday... how exciting, get plenty of rest and sending you lots of positive baby vibes x
Yeyyyy! Fantastic. Yes one of ours stopped growing too. It’s hard trying to relax though isn’t it!!! Sending lots of baby dust your way too 😘😘 xxx
Will do. You too xx
Absolutely feel for you. We had zero fertilisation on our first round of ISCI. I was petrified waiting for the phone call on the second round. Looks like things are better for you this round already. I will be thinking of you and sending positive vibes. xxx
It’s the worse feeling isn’t it. Thanks so much lovely xxx
Keeping everything crossed for you. Did you get any news? X
Thank you. Xx Yes we got 9 eggs , all mature, 6 fertilised and 3 made it to blasts so I had one transferred yesterday and 2 in freezer. Currently in 2 week wait 🤞🤞🤞🙈🙈
Fantastic news!! Such a better result. Did they change your protocol or anything from the last time? Sending sticky baby dust your way. I’m on 3dp5dt of our first round. This was the only embie to make it 🤞🤞 xx
Awh that’s wonderful, sending lots of baby dust to you too lovely xx how do you feel? Xx
Yes they basically doubled my menopar and gave me 2 gonasi and buserelin as triggers to help mature my eggs. I also took DHEA, PQQ, ubiquinol, N-acetyl cysteine and myo-inositol (I’m not saying they made the difference but something did the trick to even get to fertilisation after last time) just hoping it wants to stay in there 🤞🤞🙏🙏 xx
Something definitely worked! I was gutted when we didn’t get any to freeze, it seemed like everyone did. I gave myself a good talking to and realised how grateful we should be that we even got one to blastocyst. let’s just hope this one sticks! I’m feeling crampy and boobs are so sore but I know that’s from the pessaries. I’m trying not to symptom spot and it’s been okay this early on but I know as the days go on I will go slowly crazy! Wishing you the best of luck xx
