    @hopefulangel1987-
    Typical EPU day: (ladies feel free to add if I've missed something out
    - arrive at day surgery desk, sign papers, process payments and then u wait at the reception area u til the nurse calls ur name.
    - once they call ur name, u and DH go into a small room where they ask u to confirm ur identity, weight etc. They will ask u to remove all clothing, jewellery, shoes etc and put on a gown. Similar to gown we get at scans. Then abit more waiting with DH
    - when it's ur turn, they move u to another room while they prepare for EPU. FS will come in, ask to confirm identity again, ask time and day u triggered. This was when I got told I may be at risk of ohss because of the number of follies but confirmation after EPU.
    - when everything is ready for u. Nurse will ask DH to go upstairs to give sample while u get ushered to theatre room
    - u lie on the table, confirm ur details again. Anaesthetist puts the canula in ur arm, FS and nurses will be chatting away and then u get knocked out within 30secs of the canula going in...hahah..The best part I reckon.
    - wake up in recovery. Lie for another 20mins-30mins
    - transfer u to the seated recovery room where they tell u how many eggs they retrieved, u get given tea or coffee and biscuits. They monitor u if u get side effects from the anaesthetic.
    - you get given info about what to do after EPU, rest, fluids etc
    - then u're given the all clear to go home and wait for the fertilisation rate the nxt day.

    I hope I haven't missed anything..haha..
    You will be alright hun.

    @tjuls is spot on @hopefulangel1987 😊 I honestly stressed so much, was an anxious wreck, couldn't stop crying, completely overwhelmed! But after I was like, wow that was nothing! Which I knew would be the case but the unknown got to me beforehand lol!

    Well the line is getting darker so hoping things are going to plan so far 😊

    I'd say around 1.5 - 2hrs @hopefulangel1987. Forgot to mention that DH will meet up with u in the recovery room. So u both get the news together

    It's normal to be feeling the heaviness. It's the ovaries filling up with follicles- a good sign
