I’m still really snoozy so this will be short.
Egg collection day today and so we headed in to see what the result of my stims was. Massive bloat! The nurse was really lovely and had the same name as my mum. Very jokey and kept saying she was here to give me a cocktail (of drugs).
Unfortunately it was difficult to get a line in so I ended up after a failed attempt having a wrist cannula. I’m fine with arms but I find the hand and wrist ones a bit icky.
I’m not sure how to feel about this. My first reaction is to be disappointed. Last time they retrieved 12 eggs, of which 6 fertilised and only 1 made it to transfer. I really felt the effects of the stims a lot more this time and was on different meds. T thinks it’s not so bad and maybe they are better eggs. I hope so.
I really hope we have a better fertilisation rate this time.
On the funny side, I didn’t bring any slippers (travelling light) and so I got an improvised set of one shoe cover and one hair cover for my feet…
