Egg collection tomorrow

Hi lovely people

Hope you’re okay and having a good start to the week. So this had been my first cycle of trying lower dose stims, I’m relieved to report that it looks like we will hopefully get six eggs (fingers crossed!🤞🏻) and I have three follicles over 20mm with my largest being 23.

I approached this cycle thinking it would probably get cancelled as I wouldn’t respond but each time I have gone for my scans things have looked pretty good, I’m a poor responder so six is good for me!

Can bigger follicles potentially be a sign of higher egg quality? This was our aim this cycle to get a few high quality eggs. We have never had a blasto so hoping and praying this cycle we might achieve that. 🤞🏻🍀🤞🏻

So worried I’m starting to get my hopes up now and I’m setting myself up for a massive fall. 🤦‍♀️🤪

Aww thanks lovely, I really appreciate it. 😊💛xxx

Hi Kat, I'm not sure about larger follicles indicating quality but I've got my fingers crossed for you! It's very hard to balance the hopes with trying to protect yourself - I usually try to plan my next step so that if it doesn't go to plan I have something to aim for to pick myself up. But you have every right to be excited - being "unexcited" doesn't mean the outcome is any easier, so let yourself feel it if you want to! xx

Hi Millbanks. Thanks for your thoughtful message, I really appreciate it. You’re absolutely right. We are on a puppy waiting list at the moment so that’s definitely something to look forward to! 😊We have decided if this cycle doesn’t prove successful that we will take a few months off before trying again. Wishing you positive vibes for your onward journey too. xx

Hello Mimisami, oh no sorry to hear it hurts where you did your trigger, poor you. How are you feeling today? When I did my FET last year, I had to do some injections in my bum and I think I hit a nerve once as I got a pain in the side of my leg after. It went away soon afterwards. Is your egg collection today too? Wishing you lots luck and positive vibes. Xx

Hi lovely. How are you? Glad to hear it’s not as painful now, hope it continues to feel better. How did you get on today? My egg collection went well, thank you. Bit painful this evening with cramps but not too bad. Oh I know, dreading all the bloody update calls! 😫🤪Will be thinking of you and sending positive vibes and lots of luck. xx

Just read the post. Glad it went well and short protocol worked better for you! I went the other way and increased my stims but outcome so far is better than last time although i dont focus on numbers too much (just keeping my hopes low this round i guess). Same here cramping. Had never had the brown spotting before but seems all part of the deal. Lets hope we have something to transfer monday (if ur going for a fresh that is) 💐💐💐

Yes hoping to go for fresh transfer on Monday but just keeping everything crossed it happens. We have never had a blasto or a fresh transfer yet so trying to not get my hopes up. Hoping it’s our time. 🤞🏻🍀🤞🏻Keeping everything crossed for you for tomorrow. 💛Chat soon xx

Aww thank you Leah. 😊💛I really appreciate it. Chat soon Xx

Just wanted to stop by and wish you good luck! In the past my consultants have tried for larger follicles to help get more mature eggs, I suspect that approach differs patient by patient though. Hope all goes well today and 🤞 for some quality eggs xx

Hi Shiraz lover, thank you for your thoughtful message, I really appreciate it. Yes I think that’s what they were doing for me too. 😊How are you? xx
