Knittingnancy- My Genea nurse said the same thing to me regarding the timing of the egg collection. I had the christening of my god daughter around that week and that's probably why she said it, after I verbalized it with DH in the appointment. I thought it was absurd as well, but I did manage to make it to the christening the next day....albeit feeling like $2 lol!!
Good luck to you ladies who have started your cycle or are about to start!

This is the place to be for support & questions! Or even rants!!
I have mild endo & mild pcos but I'm regular every month so I should be able to get pregnant! I'm 29 so is DH & he has abnormal sperm morphology & mobility issues... Now not to get your hopes up, as this can be a long ride with many up's & downs but I became pregnant on our first cycle / transfer after doing icsi antagonist also but sadly miscarried at 6 weeks & the last two embryos we had resulted in a BFN... That was hard to cope with. I'm positive about a good result on my second cycle but I must realise I man not become pregnant in the first cycle like I was so lucky to last time... You never know though, I could be lucky again... You need to stay positive but realistic x
Marttc- I'm sorry about your mc. We work up so much courage to go through ivf, so to be successful and have it end that way must have been so tough. And you're right about never knowing what a cycle may bring. I had tried to prepare myself for a negative on my first cycle, but not even making it to transfer was such a blow. I had developed ohss and my FS recommended not to continue.
I have endo and DH has low morph, so we shall see what happens in our next cycle. I got pretty down about it just before Xmas because that was when I was feeling pretty sick, but now I'm feeling a bit more positive, and the post Xmas hobbies have kicked in, providing a welcome distraction!
You sound similar to me & my DH with what we have! Why does it have to be so hard sometimes? I've had so many Christmas / new year announcements & it hurts!
Marttc- I know, Xmas was ultra weird this year. I just couldn't get into it at all, and my Facebook feed was choc full of all my friends who have had bubs this year and their new family photos. So I found myself avoiding it and tweeting more, have also started an ivf blog, which is my outlet at the moment.
Hopefully this time next year, this process will be a distant memory for everyone here. Until then, let the ranting and raving begin 😜

It is so wonderful to find others to share this difficult journey with. Well we will give iui one more shot in January and if it fails we will be doing Ivf in February 2013. We have been ttc for 18 months now so the thought of Ivf is exciting but daunting. My greatest fear is going under a general for egg pick up. Does everyone do this or can they just do it under light sedation? For those of you that have done Ivf before, how did you find the egg retrieval?
thanks so much for any guidance you might be able to offer. I really appreciate it.
