NF - congratulations! If you are from the West London area you can stay at Queen Charlottes - there is a consultant there who is really excellent with twins.
I'm not sure why they boot everyone out so soon these days - I had 2 weekly scans till 10 weeks with L and until 8 weeks with Z. Definitely a great stress reducer. Anyway FMC on Harley Street do a great viability scan (anytime before the nuchal) if you need some reassurance. EPUs wont tend to look at you unless you are bleeding or in pain unless you have been specifically referred by a recurrent m/c clinic.
I have taken today off work as I can feel my ovaries vibrating in my belly everytime I walk... very odd sensation! I had my final injection last night and woke this morning feeling slightly strange to have a day off jabbing... yay
Trying to hold it all together... but DH and I are really excited about the next stage.
I hope you get lots of lovely eggs Gaye! Take it nice and easy and look after your precious cargo. And have a good feed this evening. I enjoyed egg collection... it's the drugs! All the best for yours.
Thanks Rachel, I notice you had twins - how did you cope?
Ali M, you have all this to look forward to, I'll certainly be taking tips from you - I'll need em!
Did you appear to put on lots of weight straight away or is that down to the hunger I'm experiencing - my clothes already don't fit so it could be what I'm eating
Gaye, fantastic news about EC tomorrow, I was soooo excited too but apprehensive about having enough follicles - something you don't have to worry about. I can't believe how lucky I've been. Good luck, I'll be thinking of you.
Julie, how is the 2ww treating you?
Thanks for the advice Betty but I'm a Herts girl - when I make my antenatal booking appt I'll find out which local hospital is best, however I think I have a choice of two. (Harlow or Welwyn)
Jacks how are you keeping, I cried when I saw my two jumping beans.
All the best Scooter, 14th June - not long now at all. That's the day I go on holiday so you'll be a week further down the line by the time I get back.
Does anyone have any info or facts on flying during the first trimester?
Big hello's to EBW, FM, Woo, Secret Broody, Koko, Bobbi, Biddy - I hope you are all keeping well
NF - I found I put on quite a bit of weight as the result of the treatment (particularly during stimming), and that never went away. I was also ravenous all the time, which I'm sure didn't help. By about week 12 there were only certain clothes I could still wear, and by week 14 I was in to full on stretchy maternity stuff. Re flying - everything I read seemed to indicate that there was no particular risk to pregnancy in flying, apart from slightly increased risk of DVT which you can limit by moving around and wearing some extremely attractive support stockings. I would definitely take the opportunity to travel now, while it's still easy for you to move around. Things will only become more uncomfortable as time goes by!
Julie - hope you manage to get some R&R over the weekend and that your little embies are settling in nicely.
Gaye - hope EC has gone ok - let us know how you have got on!!
Gaye - that's fantastic. 10 eggs!!!! At this rate, chances are high that you will be able to select the best embies for ET. How funny re the hiccups, I had exactly the same!! I was very woozy due to the drugs but was reminded by DH that the first thing I said after EC was "does everyone get the hiccups or is it just me". The nurse apparently assured me that lots of people get the hiccups, so you're not alone!
Hello to all, was in Paris on business and quite busy in general, going to see SATC tomorrow, ticket price includes a cosmopolitan or bubbles and some food, in an independent cinema. Can't wait. DH is coming along!
