    This time around instead of sedative + analgesia I went with just the analgesia and it was great because I actually got to see/remember what went on.

    No we just have to pray that our bits actually get it on and fertilise this time.
    @Topdeck for tomorrow, so glad your DP was happy. I dearly hope you get some fertilise. Last EPU was a wash out for us. (well we got 5 but my eggs are SO crusty thats not really good enough) What is the difference between analgesia and sedative? I always have some sort of sedative and local and that is fine for me.

    So this time, (even though one of my ovaries was on strike) we got 7 eggs at pickup and 5 fertilised so we're happy with that. Long story but I think last cycle may have been a stuff up at EPU. Anyway. Waiting for day 3 report tomorrow. Hanging out for an 8 cell. Only had one other in the past year out of 4 cycles.

    Good luck with your scan on monday @Ladydee

    WE GOT FOUR EGGS FERTILISED!!!

    Such a weight off my shoulders, now we know that my egg + DH sperm is actually a possibility. We can stop racking our brains for donors (!).

    As for my experience of egg collection anesthesia:

    First time around I had Midazolam (AKA "date rape" drug) and while DH says I was speaking the whole time I don't remember a thing of it!

    This time, without the Midaz, I got to have a proper chat with the FS and scientist, watch each egg come up on the screen, and remember the whole thing. Way more satisfying.

    Good luck everyone!

    @Topdeck Woo hoo! Well done. That must be such a relief for you for day 3. Are you doing a day 3 or 5 transfer?
    We got good news too, day 3 report and we have an 8,7 and 6 cell. Pretty happy with that. We've only had three 8 cells in the previous 9 cycles at day three. 5 day transfer booked for monday.

    AFM - I've never been a bruiser so I really can't get over my belly right now! I can barely feel the needle going in but injecting the actual Clexane really stings....I guess it's doing it's job of thinning my blood alright!....

    Ouch!! That looks painful @Ladydee. I got really bad bruising in and around my belly button after EPU, but was very lucky with the shots.

    Wow, this has got to be the quietest IVF thread I've ever been a part of! Usually if I don't check back in one day, I come back in and about 30 pages have passed! Lol.

    What's everyone up to ladies? Any news??

    AFM - I had my scan today and was nervous as my new FS-to-be had tweaked my drugs for this cycle and got me to start my Clexane injections and steroids earlier than my current FS so I was super nervous that he'd see my bruised belly but, it was all good....just a quick dildo-cam to tell me that my lining is looking great and I'm all set to go in for my FET this Saturday

    i do agree @Ladydee - very quiet

    i am due to start my first round IVF next month. I pick up all meds this week. With injections starting next week (I think)

    tbh I'm all over the place with what's happening. Very anxious and nervous. Just hoping that the journey for one does not take long :/

    great news about your new FS and scans @Ladydee. Fx for Saturday.
