Hey. Good luck for next week. Plan to do nothing the day after. You will be sore and need time to recover. Generally though u will go in, after a quick chat with the doc you will have a nice little sleep and when u wake up you will get the good news of how many eggs were collected. Make sure you have someone to look after you that afternoon, my DH was a gem for the days after retrieval.

i had my egg retrieval today cd 12 at Hollywood. I was asked to get there at 9 am and was the last one in at 12. It was pretty much a quick experience had my blood pressure done asked me to changed into gowns and then was introduced to the lady looking after my eggs and the anesetiest. The doctor ( who was different to the one I had my consult with) came into said hello and introduced herself to my partner. he then went for his part and i went to the procedure room. Once I was on the table I don't remember a thing lol. All the nurses were great!! I had very little cramping a no bleeding but some of the other ladies looked pretty uncomfortable . the whole time i was under till i walked back into the waiting room was 2 hrs. Now I'm waiting for the phone call in the morning to hear if the 11 egg were successfully fertilised. Good luck with your epu next week!!

Best of luck Becs. I was like a Mum whilst mine were growing - I kept ringing every day to find out what stage they were at! My little Ruby is proof that it only takes one xx

gl with that Net3811, do most clinics deal with ED and donor sperm?
wish u all the best for EPU Wishnhope, make sure u drink plenty of water, i had a little bleeding and was pretty sore for about 5 days but then you hear others who r good after a day or so, like my friend who just had hers. Everyones diff.
Pray all 3 make it Becs79, are you likely to have a 3 or 5 day transfer?
AmyEl, congrats on your DS, that is such an amazing gift if you do decide to donate
CD7 for me now, just feeling flat, just under 2 weeks till we see the specialist again, couldnt come quick enough now, need to get this started again.
Just a few links I wanted to share with you all, I will be talking with our specialist about this, I know they did mention something about adding calcium to sperm to possibly help with fertilisation rate
Hope you all r having a good w/e, whos watching the footy?
