    Undies off now! Waiting for a bed. Been so quick.

    Will let you know how I go. I'm so scared. More scared about how many will fertilise though.

    11 is GREAT Rainbow! No need to be disappointed. That's a fantastic number. Just observationally (not sure if there's any actual science to support this), it appears to me that large numbers of eggs often tend to be lower quality. My FS also always says around 10 is the number to aim for.

    Rainbow - 11 is a great number like peonies I've heard numbers too big usually mean poor quality. Fingers crossed they all do well from here

    Yay Rainbow, 11 eggs is awesome! Anywhere between 6-12 is optimum . More than that and you start sacrificing quality for quantity.

    Congrats on a great egg haul rainbow. My fert rates varied from 100% down to 50%. It was hit and miss with no way to predict. No matter the fert rate I ended 4 blastocysts from my first 2 EPUs and 3 from my last one. That was from 15,13 and 6 fertilised (hope that makes sense).
    Good luck

    Thank you. It's going to be an anxious few days I think. I desperately hope they do well.

    Everyone has said it's all looking normal so far, so hope it continues. I'm so scared that we will have nothing to transfer! It only takes one, but a few back ups would be nice, haha.

    RainbowRoad..... oh how you made me laugh so hard with your "undies off?" question. My DH is just going to love that story when I tell him when he gets home. Here's one for you - my DH wasn't at my ET on my first cycle last year as it was during the week and he was at work, but this time, last Sat, he came with me. As my FS is giving us the low-down on putting on hairnet, gown etc, my DH says to my FS, "Do I have to take all my clothes off too?". Both FS and I rolled our eyes, "No, dear, you're not having anything done, you're just watching!" Obviously I hadn't explained the procedure well enough for him!! Yes, IVF is certainly an "undies off" place - I remember looking back at my first couple of pap smears how embarrassed I was, and now I whip everything off from waist down at a mere mention of a test!!
