One big dance for eggs to mature for DMK,Superted,myself and follies to grow for Ali.
PS- Superted who's popular now dear!!! can you delete some of your inbaskets
as I was trying to send you a message.
Blue glad to hear you and the baby ok I bet you can't wait to start your maternity leave.
Superted I have not got another appointment just to take the pill for 21 days and on the 21st day start my injections to d/r. They said to call on that day to arrange a scan to see if it is all going to plan.
I just got sent here by Maxbabe, I didnt know there was a Kings thread.
I have had my IVF attempts at St Helier with transport IVF to Kings which means all the intial scans and medicines are done at St Helier, but the embryology and transfer is done at Kings. I have just made an appointment to get FET at Kings as we have three frosties, so thought I would say hi to everyone here.
welcome to this thread EM, you will find the girls very supportive and friendly.
Well girls I'm back from the hospital and still feeling a little groggy, not to mention a little saw down below, DH has been looking after me bless!
The egg collection was fine, I didn't feel a thing, the only thing I felt was when the sedative went up my arm, and a small needle from the needle.
When the sedative went up, I looked up at the ceiling the lights went funny and next minute I knew I was in the recovery room, I don't remember a thing! DH said I said ah a couple of times and that it, and my eyes were open all through it.
Before I was put under sedation the doctor counted 12 eggs altogether. I thought great that sounds good!
Unfortunately out of the 12 we got 6-7 good eggs! I know the shell came of one and the others were too mature, and I don't know about the others cant remember. So a little disappointing as would of liked more..
I think perhaps if they would of upped my gonal f to 300 perhaps I would of had more, who knows....
Anyway on DH last sperm test it was excellent, but today it was a little lower than norm, but they were all swimmers, right size and all that. However they offered us ICSI or IVF, so we went for ICSI for a better chance.
After all they still need to check the eggs are good inside and good enough to fertilize, now the worrying begins!!!!
We will find out tomorrow if we have had any luck, God willing.
Thanks girls for all your support.
Good luck superted tomorrow will be thinking of you, you will be fine.
We have been chatting on this site for some time now. As you might have gathered I am due my EC tomorrow so feeling a little apprehensive.
Anyway the Kings Staff are friendly however I would say the reception staff sometimes I have found a little cold. Anyway if you need support and to ask any questions please do so. Not that I am an expert as this is my first ICSI/IVF cycle. THey will decide for sure tomorrow.
Thanks Blue for your wishes.
Hope everyone else is ok will let you know what happens tomorrow. I pray out of my 9 follies I will have hopefully 4-5 good eggies.
Bubs is due on 10th August and 12 week scan went well - dr was very thorough during scan - so thorough I had a sore tummy once he finished as he was pressing so hard. Tummy has started to show but not very firm yet!!
Spirit/Superted - best of luck with fertilisation, et and ec I opted for sedation, couldn't remember a thing!
Blue/Maxbabe - hope bubs are doing well and you are both blooming Will find out sex of bubs at 23 week scan, no more bleeding, thank goodness, but I still worrying about every symptom, or the lack of them!
Spirit on 7 eggs, vibes for them to fertalise into nice embies for you and as the others have said it only takes one to make that dream come true.
Superted Good luck for EC today
Debbie D hope you are ok
Nic G I won't forget your due date as it is my Mums birthday, hope you are not feeling so sore now.
Maxbabe hope all is ok
Oh just one thing did anybody feel ill on the pill ? Normally I can sleep for england but the last couple nights I have been staring at the clock at 3 in the morning also I have been feeling quite sick and was sick on Sunday.
Superted, I hope to day went well, you should be in the recovery room as I am writing, looking forward to hearing how it went.
Spirit don't worry 6 eggs is good, as I think I have told you before, last time I only had 6 follies, of which 4 were eggs and I got 2 good grade embies from that, and that is all you need. They should phone you later today to let you know how it all went, I ahve everything crossed for you. All you can do now is wait, really try not to worry.
Lettuce, I am sorry to say it but I felt awful on the pill from about the 2nd day until the end, it just didn't agree with me, opposite to you, it made me so tired I was sleeping whenever I could. The sickness did wear off after the first few days. It gave me aterrible tummy upset for first few days too, so I wouldn't worry about feeling ill, unfortunately you just have to ride it out, I hope the time passes quickly for you.
This time tomorrow, I will be eggless too, Last time the sedative didn't knock me out, I was awake all the way through watching the screen I remember each and everyfollie being popped. I hope tomorrow I go out for the count like spirit.
Welcome to Em....glad you found us and we will try and answer your questions as best we can!
Spirit - Fab news on the eggs - like I harp on about its quality not quantity that counts....fingers crossed the fertilisation goes well...this is so hard the waiting...but you are so close to having your dream! Hang in there!
Superted - hope all is going well for you too - probably right now you are recovering - good luck...
DMK - best of luck for tomorrow - I never get completely knocked out either - just a floating feeling.....tell them to up the dosage - or lie about your weight - I think it may be based on that - not 100% sure though!
Lettuce - sorry your feeling so awful - I hope you can ride the storm out - I am sure it will be worth it in the end though!
Nicola - glad all went well with the scan - when do you plan to finish work - I am finishing 1st April - thought that was quite fitting! Being April fools day and all!
Big hello's to Ali, Blue and DebbieD! Hope you guys are all well!
As for me....just getting rather large off to the Osteopath today, we are also at the final stages of interviews for my cover....
