Hi. This is my first post on here and Im a little unsure on what to put really.

We have been trying to conceive for nearly 6 years.  we are currently in the middle of our first IVF cycle after 3 previous DI attempts failed.  We went for our scan yesterday and there is 4 follicles ready for collection on Monday.  Im incredibly nervous now.  I really want to try and stay positive but found the scan yesterday very difficult.  I was borderline on whether to continue with the injections and have another scan on Monday and the doctor seemed unsure on the next stage. they asked us to return a few hours later and then told us that the team had gathered and believed an egg collection Monday was the better option. I think the doctors uncertainty has knocked my confidence a bit now. I'm scared as it feels like my body lets us down. S x

to FF!

Huge ^hugme^ Each stage of IVF is a hurdle, and it's so hard. The fact that you have 4 follies is a good sign ^reiki^ Most ladies dont remember much about their egg collection, I know it's difficult to not think about it though ^hugme^ Let us know how you get on wont you? x

Masses of luck for Monday  ^pray^ ^reiki^
Don't worry about only having 4 follies.  I only had one 1 and it was the lucky one. 
Hope it is for you too.

hi there,
Ive recently gone through an ec (13th December).  When i had my original scan i had lots of lovely folicles - 20 in all.  By the time i had gone through IVF I had a total of 6 which were viable / accessible.  I felt really down thinking how can that be right, ive less now than i did before i started treatment.  But, have to say that of the 6, 4 fertilised and 2 went on to be transferred.  I had a bfp and now waiting for my 6 week scan.  So, it really does only take 1.  Please try not to worry. 
The ec itself I found a little bit painful but the drugs that you get are great, I dont remember much of the journey home!  After the EC I had very little pain but slept the rest of the day!

Wishing you the best of luck and keeping my fingers crossed x

Hi
Sorry about not replying sooner.  Thank you for your replies. On our egg collection  they managed to get 9 eggs. After hearing 4 on Friday i was very shocked and convinced they couldn't have been my eggs.  Four of the eggs fertilised and on Wednesday they transfered one embryo.  We are waiting to hear off hospital to see if they can freeze the remaining three.  I'm too scared to phone and ask because i don't want to add more pressure if they were unable to freeze remaining ones.  the doctor  told us to go home and wait for the test in two weeks.
I don't remember much from the egg collection -  there was a bit of bleeding so they had to double pack?? still a bit unsure what that means. I remember it being a bit painful but just relieved it had been successful.  the last three days have been so mad with going back for the transfer.  I felt like the whole way through I've been able to ease my mind by thinking of the result but now the result is the next step I'm very nervous. I wish there was something I could do. I'm scared to get excited in case it doesn't work but want to remain positive.

The jigsaw thing must be catching!  I did one last time and just about to complete one now! It is very relaxing as the 2ww is the longest ever.    Good luck to everyone ^fairydust^
