Hi everyone. Hope all is well. Been busy viewing rentals, organising bond clean & carpet cleaning, enjoying my month off meds eating sushi & drinking vino haha
mrs Simmo, Maddison is absolutely gorgeous, the wait is finally over & you must be on cloud 9!!
Got next apt on 25th, will hopefully start next cycle soon after. How is everyone who's cycling atm doing?? I'm wondering wether I should get back on the accupuncture bandwagon or not? Finding the time is the problem. Hoping for some more BFP announcements soon x

EPU done, 5 eggs collected, now the wait
Procedure was ok, always starts off ok for me then gets painfull, i always tend to get upset at the egg count as well, when they are counting them as they find them. Disappointed my body doesn't give more. I think the gas contributes to that though.
Haha the gas made me emotional first time around then on the second one, Ben kept cracking jokes and I laughed so much Simon struggled to find my ovaries cause my insides were jiggling around. 5 is a good number (what dose were you on?). I know plenty of ladies get really high numbers buy the quality is rubbish and only a couple fertilise. Fingers crossed all goes well and you have a few embies.
I was upped to 225 this time as we were hoping to get extra for freezing. I dont usually get more than 7, and that was all on lower doses lol. But usually only about 2-3 fertilize. Yeah go figure, my body just refuses to go along with any plan they set out for me, its like a rebellious teenager
They managed to inject 4/5 eggs, and all 4 of them fertilized!!! Thats pretty damn good for us! So friday we get 2 put back and time to hum and ha about whether we want to pay 1500 to freeze 2.
