    I needed 2 days with each of mine. The anaesthetic really knocks me around! Good luck!

    @phee83 @mushy

    Did you have the local or did you get fully knocked out?? I'm still not sure which one to do I've never had surgrey or anything before so this is all new to me.. and is it true they put a sticker on the inside of your hand with a number of how many eggs they took out so when you wake up you know? 😊

    I was fully knocked out with a general all three times. My first cycle I'd been told I was only having a twilight anesthetic/sedation, but when I got to the hospital they said no they always do general for this procedure.

    As for the number of eggs, with my first clinic I just asked whichever nurse I saw first after waking up how many eggs they got as it was written on my chart. With the second clinic the doctor wrote the number of eggs all down my arms and legs

    @phee83 
    Ok sounds good to me all I worry about is feeling the pain when do it but I just keep reminding myself what to outcome is at the end (if works first time around)

    our doctor also suggested that we put only one fertilized egg back in but I thought that you could put up to two fertilzed eggs in but he said that leads to many triplets etc and they don't like doing that these days because of high risks.. have you heard of this?

    Our first clinic said you were only allowed to put one back in the first cycle and that it's a Medicare rule (not sure if that's true or not but it's what they told me), but you could put 2 back second cycle if the doctor agrees. Our second clinic had a rule that you had to had to have 2 failed cycles before they would consider putting two back (but they would count cycles at other clinics).

    So I think only one embryo in your first cycle is common, but after that each clinic can be a little different.

    I also didn't have much pain from the surgery, for me it was more recovering from the anaesthetic.
