Hi Kristy, 10.5mm is amazing

I'm impressed you had David do a scan because I didn't see a counsultant at all once started, at one point there was mention of cancelling and the sonographer kept going back and forth to check things with him. I felt a bit out of the loop, like he was the wizard of oz behind the curtain or something!

It was Michael who did my ET and honestly he was very nice about it all, I just wasn't expecting the legs in stirrups bit tbh! I am glad I didn't have DH in with me though, he would have found it all too weird I'm sure.

I haven't looked at any other clinics just yet, I have my follow up next week and ideally i'd like to stay with the clinic, even with single transfer I think. We had a few hiccups but nothing that was their fault and tbh I like them and I like that I know how things go there now for round 2.

4 is a good number and like you say age wise your quality should be great. I've read that more often = poorer quality sometimes.

My first scan was done on our consultation date. That's the one David did.

Legs in the stirrups eek Just hope it all goes smoothly.

I must say they are very good there. I fond Filiz lovely. Very calming and gives me a lot of confidence. I would definatly stay with them if my first try fails. I dont think anywhere will do double transfer.

I did my overtrill injection last night. I'm so excited but so scared

Hi girls

Well Egg collection was totally fine. Never felt a thing. Dont even remember my cuppa n biscuits after

I had 5 eggs collected but 1 was clearly no good. I got home and slept till 6pm Hardly any pain. More like a bloaty feeling.

Soooo, I had that dreaded call at 9am with the fertilisation news... They could only inject 2 of the 5. BUT BOTH have fertilised. One more so than the other. I am back in tomorrow at 9.30am to have my potential baby put in The embryologist said that 95% of fertilised eggs go onto transfer stage. So unless anything goes drastically wrong, I will be there tomorrow with bells on.

Then I have the longest 12 days of my life hoping and praying I don't get af and that it leads to a positive test on the 29th July

xxx

Hi Kirsty,

Well done! this time tomorrow you will have your little embies in you Yay! Excited for you!! Actually the wait is the hardest (not to scare you), the best thing to do is to do things that will keep you busy and distructed.

I am 3dp5dt and I have 6 days to go and I am doing my best to cope with the wait.

All the best Kirsty!

Yeap am on the cyclogest and my (.)(.) are huge but not sore. They are quite messy when you use them virginally so I was told that its ok to use the rectally as they are less messy.

I wasn't told to do or eat anything anusuall after the transfer. I was told to just take it easy and no heavy lifting. But I am eating alot lately am waiting to see if its because of a bfp or AF due.

I will be praying for you Kirsty.

I didn't bring a cd in but they had music on anyway. Basically nurse comes to get you from reception, then you go to the recovery area. You are told to strip and put on those clinic dresses. As usuall you will be asked for name and d.o.b alot of times. You will be then escorted to the room you had EC from. The embryologist will come and tell you about you embies and then they transfer them. You will be shown your embies on the monitor before they transfer and you will be given a little picture to take home.
The transfer is a bit embarasing as you have your legs hanging in the air and a male consultant looking at your bits!! lol! Its all forgotten once you leave and you start thinking of you embies in you.

All the best for today, let me know how it goes and we will get our bfp xx
