How did you go today at epu ladies?
Thank you lovelies @Ashjay @cococool @Flower78 @AmyEL @jess8383 @pingc383 and everyone else. You guys are great.
I had 6 eggs retrieved today. Though that's much lower than expected, I'm now ok and hoping all of then fertilise fingers and toes crossed. I woke up crying with terrible pain this time and 5 doses of morphine and two panadol a later, I was fine. They're still in my system so that's nice
Hope it all went for you @jess8383
@AmyEL Metformin has been horrible! I didn't take it last night and of course this morning. It makes me sick!! How long did you take it for? I've been on it for almost 3 months. I had that kind of diarrhoea as well and then got severe constipation. It just makes me sick in the stomach 24/7.
Thanks for the tips, protein powder is a great idea, I'll buy some xx
@Mongol that's ok! 6 eggs is sooo great! Celebrate and have a glass of wine while you can!
Me, well I'm going in to have my scan tomorrow to see how many follicles I have. Nervous and excited. Last time on my first cycle my right ovary had a massive cyst which blocked any follicles and I only 2 eggs in the end on my left side.
I am really hoping this time we have more so we can have more chances.
@jess8383 hope you're ok too. Looking forward to knowing how you went today
Thanks girls, sorry about the vent I know a lot of you are going through much more than me, but was just frustrated yesterday, I feel like it's really dragging out! Anyway much better today & ready for BT in the morning!
@Mongol 6 is a great haul, I have everything crossed you have a great fertility rate! Hope the pain eases quickly.
RE: Metformin, I stuck at it for about 3 months both tones & then gave up, it made me feel shocking, I've heard the low release can be better on your body, not sure if you already using that one.
@cococool fingers crossed for a better cycle for you.
@Mongol, 6 eggs is great! Don't forget it's quality over quantity! Rest up and try not to stress about the numbers too much. Easier said than done I know
I managed to get 8, but not sure if they are all mature. She said they will find out this afternoon when they attempt ICSI and I will get a call tomorrow from the nurses to update me. I will also have a scientist call again on Sunday for another update. Transfer will be Tuesday if all goes well. Apparently FS is a little concerned about my lining thickness, as he's had two conflicting reports from the last two U/S, the last one was apparently thinner which didn't make a lot of sense...perhaps two different sonographers/different measures.
I only had a light sedation and local, and I coped okay. It felt like it went for about 5 min all up but DH assures me we were in there for at least 30 min lol. Midazolam is good stuff! Hopefully I didn't say anything too embarrassing!
I'm a little tired and tender but I've just curled up on the couch and will start watching some more Netflix! I'm craving sushi so given the nurses instructed hubby to wait on me and do as he's told I'm sure I'll get some lol. She even told him to go buy me a bell!!!
@cococool thanks yes I will be celebrating with something full of gluten as I've been off it and really missing it all the best for your scan tomorrow, hope you get to see lots of good looking follies. How old are you if you don't mind me asking? I'm 35. Sorry to hear about your cyst, is it still there?
@PINGc838 thanks hun
@AmyEL no need to apologise hun, you have full permission to feel whatever way and vent here any time! IVF/infertility is extremely tough and some people cope better than others. I've had my low moments and I know how terrible one feels.
Thanks hoping for all 6 to be of good quality, I'll get an update re fertilisation tomorrow.
I'm not on slow release Metformin as the doctor didn't think they come in slow release but the pharmacist told me they do. Next time I'll get a script for slow release. @jess8383 yayyy that's a great result I'm hoping everything goes perfectly well for you from here on.
Wow you only had light sedation, I've never had that but I'm sure it's less risky than a full GA. I've taken 6 GAs in the last 3 years but never tried sedation with local anaesthetic. Haha yes let hubby treat you like a queen. Mine gets too clueless whenever I have a procedure, I can see it on his face but he's very sweet. I'm watching Orange is the New black on Netflix as I write this oh and I'm craving fried chicken from KFC even though I never usually eat it, been years since I last ate it. I think it's time to have some now. Take care xx
