Thank you all.
Lauralou - try not to worry, easier said than done I know. They will have uped the meds as they will want to get the follices to grow a little more. They generally like to get them up to around 18mm so that they have a good chance of getting an egg that is just right. Sounds like you have quite a few which is great but that they just want to boost their size a little. That really is quite normal as many of the girls on here will tell you
Lucybucy - sounds like you have quite a few follies. The water is just to reduce the chance of getting OHSS. Not long to go now to EC when you will find out the fruits of all your work so far. It will be worth it!
Natalie - glad that you have the little one back on board. I was not so good with the pessaries either - they are yuck but at least no more injections for you
Vess - any news on your EC - hope that it went well & they gave you plenty of meds!!!
Wendy - 8 good size follies with one at 22mm is great news. EC not far away now - good luck for Friday - hope that you get lots of great eggs
USP - welcome to the thread. The girls are great and will be the best support that you could ask for. Ask questions or just come on here for company - whatever helps you
Cyot - the cramping should pass. Just keep up the water and pineapple juice
tlkmoser - second time lucky for both you & me girl
So many of you now with test dates in about a week - next week is going to be really busy. May testers are not doing so well so we must be due lots of BFP
I made a follow up appointment yesterday so we knew how far away that will be. It is on 31st May so less that three weeks. They told me that it had to be at least 2 weeks so they could collect all the data from this cycle and suss out what it all means so we get the right next steps. Prissy - am hanging onto your words from our favorite nurse! We have to change consultant as the one that we started with is retiring. He did tell us up front though so I knew that was coming. The new secretary was very helpful so I take that as a good sign. dh and I are meant to be at a charity bash tonight. We were like maybe we will not go. Then we both said sod it, we've not been out much, I can have a drink, let's go and be like normal people. So I am going to get my nails done this afternoon and we are going to go out on the town.
Only so much moping around that I can do. dh has been brilliant - he said he had a cry yesterday but on his own so that he did not distress me anymore. I am so lucky.
Better get on with work now. Yawn Yawn
Loads of baby dust to you all.
