Hi! Throwing my hat in for September 😃
We had egg pickup yesterday, only one egg collected from one large follicle.
News today - the egg fertilised!! Heading in for transfer tomorrow and then the dreaded TWW.. This is my first time around so I'm trying not get my hopes up too high but it's so hard to not be excited.
I've been really open with people about the whole process - but DH and I have decided to tell people we had no luck fertilising just incase we have a rough road ahead.
How is/has everyone else dealt with the "when & who to tell" part? I'm terrible at secrets and want to tell everyone! Haha 😊
jaybu84 ! I find the first couple of rounds pretty exciting, so enjoy it while you can and hopefully you will be successful early on. Its the repeated build up and failure that is hard to take.
I tell people who I have to tell (my boss) and people who are very close to me. Also, other women who have gone through it or are going through the same thing. No one else needs to know really.
@Heyside congrats, great numbers!
good luck everyone

@Bettie, so sorry to hear it's not positive. Big hugs. Make sure you take care of yourself and indulge in lots of treats.
@Heyside, that's great. You must be stoked. Best of luck for ET and a sticky bean.
@jaybu84, congrat hun that's great. Best of luck for tomorrow. We've been very open with everyone. After 3.5 years and all our friends having 1-3 kids we just decided it was too hard beating around the bush. Glad we've been honest because we've had amazing love and support. Completely up to how you feel though.
Thanks @babygirl7. How's your cycle going?
