    Hey ladies. Good luck with all thats go8ng on ( :
    Afm:
    Had my egg collection yesterday, got 17 eggs and I have been in pain since yesterday... I cant walk comfortably since the collection and my abdomen is very sensitive. ... is this normal?
    I called the embryologist today and 8 eggs have been fertalized... the lady said they have already started dividing!
    They also told me yesterday that my fs might hold off on doing a egg transfer this month because I produced so many eggs which sucks. I hope I am able to get a egg transfer this week ) :

    There is some pain, everyone seems to be different though. I took some panedine forte day 2 of EPU. I had trouble breathing too but just rested for a few days. 17 is a lot of eggies. Do they think you have OHSS symptoms? Maybe that is why they are considering holding off on ET. Make sure you drink lots of water and take panadol or similar as needed. Good luck hopefully they will let you transfer

    Congrats on 8 fertilised eggs, they would definitely be holding off die to risk of OHSS. I was told anything over 15 is considered OHSS high risk and transferring can make it alot worse.

    As Sharlee said pain depends on the person, I had no pain, but was very uncomfortable for a few days, I had been drinking 2+ litres a day for a few days prior to EPU and its essential you drink that much for at least a week plus something like hyralite or gatorade to help hydrate you. Im 7dpt and still very bloated but not in pain.

    You are able to transfer.

    Ally, I agree completely. Frances I really feel for you a loss at any stage can be really really difficult, particularly when you've struggled so hard to get that BFP. My "miscarriage" at 7 weeks, which they later realised was an ectopic, was so hard and so few people understood - I didn't know anyone who had had a miscarriage. One of my best girlfriends (who has three children she conceived naturally) said "But that's great!" - and of course that fact I'd finally got pregnant WAS great, but given that wasn't where the story ended, it wasn't really that "great" at all. It made me feel like I wasn't allowed to grieve - it kinda sucked. Big hug to you x Fingers crossed for a really sticky bean for you this time

    Vixjc.... I can't believe someone would says "that's great" to you. I have played a slightly different scenario over and over in my head - if ever I get pregnant, and decide to tell people, how do I tell them that I'm pregnant, without them going "that's great" before getting a chance to say, "but it's not DH's sperm." I have such conservative friends and even more conservative work colleagues, so I'm trying to come up with a sentence that says it all in one go, before they can say the "that's great". But not worrying too much about that, as I have yet to get a BFP, let alone make it to 12 weeks stage!!

    7liha.... yes, drink lots of water, keep the Panadol up and do literally rest.

    MGC Bertie - does it really matter if they say "that's great" and then you tell them about the sperm later (if at all?).

    Family and v close friends would be different. If they don't know already I would go down the "so we've been trying for ages, multiple unsuccessful ivfs, donor sperm, and now amazing news... We're pregnant and DH and I are over the moon"! No room for any confusion over what the "right" reaction is to that news.

    For all the rest, I say stuff them. Nobody's business but yours!!

    Oh, and I have been guilty of telling a friend after she suffered an ectopic "at least you know you can get pregnant". Little did I know at the time it was IVF and regardless, a totally inappropriate thing to say. Have learned my lesson and I think she has forgiven me.

    I like to try and remember that people generally say things with good intentions, and just a lack of thought. I don't think they ever mean to hurt you with these things. Particularly in these situations, people often don't know what to say so end up saying something awkward or stupid.

    One I am struggling with at the moment is DHs best friend after we lost our baby at 17 weeks said it was "for the best at the age gap between DS and the baby would have been too small and been hard to manage" (20 months). Losing the baby was many things, and "for the best" wasn't one of them. However I do know that he cares about us immensely and he would hate to think his comment hurt us - he just spoke without thinking.

    Hi ladies,
    I'm trying to be a bit more active on the forum.
    After 4 years hubby and I are finally doing IVF (FS decided it's best to do ICSI) and today is egg pick up. At my last scan I had about 11 good size follicles and I'm really keeping my fingers crossed that they're all fully matured and gets fertilized.
    So great to be on a site with other people going through the same thing and reading about everyone's experiences.
    Best of luck to all of you
