Glad you're feeling better. OMG 18 eggs - congrats! Are you doing a 3day transfer or 5day? Do you know how many you plan to put back?

As far as the transfer (though I've never done IVF but I've done 6 IUIs) from what I hear it will be as painless as the mock. Personally with the IUIs it burns a little when they get the catheter in there but its over in 2 min. and I'm a little crampy the rest of the day. Although I just had a saline ultrasound with a catheter and wasn't crampy at all.

Bottom line is - it's all worth it! I've got my fingers crossed for a BFP for you. Have a great weekend and let us know when ET is. :)

Thank you!!! We're really excited. I've had some mild symptoms of hyperstimulation but if that's my only issue, I'll gladly take it. Although it is kind of ironic to look down and see a bloated belly... when all you really want is it to be bloated because it's pregnant!

They're actually doing a 4 day transfer this Sunday. I don't really know the stats of that. I always assumed it was either 3 or 5. I've been "google" crazy so I'll have to look it up!

I'll let you know how it goes. It's amazing that after all of the stress and pain and doctor's appointments that it's all over in 2 minutes. I always thought that IVF would be a much harder process - although I can't say that it's easy at all.

Thank you, all, for your support. It means a great deal to have women understand exactly what you're going through. Good luck!!!
