Thanks for the welcome ladies!
@Sally girl good luck with ur first cycle and hopefully your only one needed! Puregon is the drug that makes ur follies grow, 150 was my starting dose too, it's based what they think u'll need to get about 10-15 eggs. Orgalutran stops ur follies popping before epu. I think they r hedging bets by doing 1/2 icsi
@Ree888 thanks for the welcome, I think growing to blasty stage is more important for mfi issues as after day 3 is when the sperm DNA starts contributing to embryo development. I did 3 et with 2day embies and got donuts and then first et with blasty got me a bfp, we have mfi issues. Good luck for ur et on Friday fx
@babygirl7 oh of course af is late when u actually want it!! Hope it comes soon for u
@ladybug14 it could b a little early still, give it another 2 days. So easy for me to say that but I will b poas early too.
@canuck28 awesome numbers!! Bet u can't wait for the first ultrasound!
Girls transferring tomorrow good luck!!
Hugs and baby dust to all xx

Any tips for egg retrieval tomorrow? Will I bleed and need pads? Will I be able to get the train home if I take it nice and easy or better in a cab?
Anyone ( @Soques ) know what the 'wear closed flat shoes' instruction is all about? I was going to wear my snuggly new ugg boots because it's so cold in the city ...
All tips appreciated

ScubaGal definitely take pads! The ones they give you are the size of single bed sheets and have no stick so you risk losing them walking out the door! It's hard to know if you'll bleed. My first I had a little spotting, second blood ********* down my legs and third, nothing! So better to be prepared. Again you may or may not be sore. I've ranged from hardly being able to walk (only once) to only a little tenderness. You will be groggy from GA so probably best to get a taxi.
I'd wear your post comfortable clothes/shoes!
Best of luck. Fingers and toes are crossed for you.

Good luck @ScubaGal hope EPU goes well. I general don't have much bleeding a little spotting at most. General ok to walk a short distance but wouldn't have been up to a train. I felt pretty groggy and vulnerable after the pick up.

Thanks @ladybug14 & @Bellavista
Pads, sand shoes and the train it is.
It will be interesting to see if I can handle it with the Local Anaesthetic.
My FS prefers local so you can be part of the process and have less recovery time but they have an anaesthetist there on standby ready to know you out if you need it...
I did my visualisations last night using the guided mp3 series by Circle and Bloom. Anyone else tried these?
I think they're pretty good.
