star - I need to have at least size 18mm follicles, which I have only 2 of. Im hoping by Friday I have little more. Thanks Im feeling much better now. Yeah as far as I know, the first time its only 1 embryo and second time upto 2 embryos with NHS. How many free IVF cycles do you get with NHS?

twinkle - I guess one advantage of going to work is that it will take your mind off the 2ww. Im thinking of taking 2 complete weeks off from work during 2ww which I dread but my work is slightly stressful so need that break.

Im feeling much better now, I was just little emotional when I came back from the clinic. Anyhow there is no point in stressing because it cant change anything so I might as well look at it from a positive angle.

lizzie - lol we posted at the same time! Yeah I guess your right, 17mm should be bigger by Friday. My follicles are growing but pretty slow, everything has its advantage eh!
follicle dust haha I like that! Yeah maybe they should create an animation/icon/smilie for that

Thats traffic for you! Those apps are no good sometimes but some do say they are good. I have never downloaded them apps but sometimes I think I should. Its madness especially school time. I dont mind traffic but it drives me mad when I am in a rush. lol

Yeah I heard most places in the UK do only 1 free cycle of NHS. In London and few other parts they give 3 free cycles. I guess 1 free cycle is better than nothing. In many countries you have to pay, no round if free. x

I'm one round free here, my fs said there isn't a waiting list luckily though I will definitely be on their case tomorrow, I'm on night shift tonight so I'll ring when I wake up
I think I'll be taking a week or two off after transfer, I work in a dementia care home where manual handling equipment is needed on the majority of the residents and alot are aggressive so I wont be takin any risks

On a different note, at what point does the man do his part in this process?
Just wondered as havent heard when that is

Hey star, when you go in for Egg Collection you partner will do his sample before or after the procedure. That's the only thing the men have to do! Lucky them...

Yes I'm off work from egg collection day and don't entend to return until after my pregnancy test which is roughly 2 weeks after embryo transfer. If you can take time off then you might aswell. Especially if you do manual handling..

How is everyone today? I have embryo transfer in the morning, just praying I have 1 embie left. So nerve recking to think I mightn't have any... But everything crossed and its only like a spear test so I've nothing to worry about pain ect xx

So long as it's only like a spear test we have nothing to worry about then Jackdoll It must be nervewracking but tomorrow will be here before you know it and you will have your embies.

Yearningheart - I really do have everything crossed for you for Friday as i can not imagine how you must be feeling, hopefully your follicles are just going slowly cos they know they have to grow perfect eggs for you.

Jackdoll - 4 embellies is still good we only had 4 & they transfered 2 at 3 day for us. Fingers crossed your transfer goes smoothly, mine was a tad uncomfortable but nothing to major.

Thankfully we get 3 funded cycles on the NHS here & this is our first cycle & they transfered 2 for us so i don't know if its up to the clinics how many they transfer, i think if they had got to day 5 then they would have only transfered 1.
AFM I had mild cramping all of yesterday with bouts of nausea & then to top it all off heartburn. I really hope this is a good sign cos I never have heartburn, I've still got a week left until testing I wish I could just find out now!!

Sending dust to everyone cos i love this emoji lol

Jackdoll - Oh thats great and so exciting. Cant wait to hear update from you. I am praying everything goes smooth and well for you and you come back with good news. This thread is so exciting with all the IVF journeys. Hopefully its all BFP! x

star - yep thats all the men do. like jackdoll said they are sure lucky! No injection, no meds, no scan, just give their sperm. Hope you had a good nice sleep x

lizzie - how are you? hows life? any update on your appointment? x

Hope everyone is doing great. I have to be home until 12:30 because of the delivery of the meds thereafter I am going to go for a walk on my own. Maybe to the park. I could do with a walk and some fruit shopping
