The word on the ward is that people complained that they didn't get food at the other clinics and that they didn't feel like eating anything heavy after EC anyway. They're having a big remodel on the premises so they'll be getting rid of the kitchen to keep service consistent. Sucks. I've brought a big old bowl of green chicken stew yum yum yum xx

    Thanks :)

    I'm still waiting, getting cold. The robe I bought from home smells like wet dog and the gown from CARE has a blood stain on it  :-X

    The things we do! So thirsty, and hungry actually.

    Hubby said his sample looked small *sigh* xx

    I got 17 eggs which is good but they didn't do the pICSI I requested and there is something suspicious about the whole thing. It's like they never wanted to do it but lead me on and then just coughed up a crap reason on the day.

    Just need to survive the wait for tomorrow's call xx

    He vaguely said that there probably isn't enough sperm to do pICSI but during the discussion the probably became more certain. I'd made a big deal about having it so for them to just skim over not doing it feels really dodgy.

    pICSI is an advanced sperm selection technique based upon the assumption that the sperm that would bind better to an egg would be of a superior quality. It isn't proven to CARE satisfaction but no harm to try. They used it before for me but we got no embryos to see if it helped and ever since they've been dragging their feet about using it but never actually explaining why. Them suddenly not being able to use it this time when I've made several points about wanting it and them saying ok, it seems too convenient.

    OMG I'm so sorry, I missed all the crack here cos I forgot there was a new thread started, silly me  :-[

    Louise, that's a great number - I sometimes dream of 10 or so  ::). I'm sorry they didn't do the pICSI. I was wondering about this myself to be honest but haven't actually asked about it (yet). I might do next time I'm there. Did you find out how many fertilised and how they are doing!?

    Can't believe they're not serving any food after EC anymore. I was starving when I came out and I was actually first down and first out. It was not that I was waiting for hours in April. Jessops in Sheffield are serving food afterwards. I will get a doggy bag from the currymile for my next EC  :)

    Jkdon, hope you have a lovely holiday! And I am glad hubby got his head round another cycle.

    News from me: I have to go back tomorrow for another scan at 11am after we went on Friday for a rather disappointing scan. There wasn't much difference to Wednesday but they said "we persevere" and I have to go back tomorrow. Weird though cos the lady scanning me said my big follicle might just be a cyst (which I don't believe as Carol didn't say anything like that on Wednesday). I hope I get someone experienced to do the scan tomorrow, fingers crossed, as I am terrified they might cancel  :( xx
