You don't have to be crazy to be on this thread but it helps

(Ladies, I thought I would jump in and start a non-sweary titled fred. Feel free to turn the air blue now!)

Lord above Fish! What have you been eating??

Juice hand holding until our palms get really sweaty and hot and people start looking at us funny.

Mejust hope you're feeling ok.

Euro you've done brilliantly! Good luck tomorrow.

Motor you nearly made ME cry with the part about your donor. What a beautiful experience this can be at times...

I had my scan this morning and I've only got 6 follicles so I'm feeling rather sorry for myself. I'm on such massive doses of hormones and this is all I could make. The fewest I've ever produced. I can't help feeling that this is the end of my journey with my own eggs. I just feel that it's not going to work.

nice count of 18 mejust. 3 more than me lady! I'm glad it went ok for you. I didn't think sedation knocked you out that much?

It's ok Nook don't be disheartened! There could still be more eggs on the day. You gotta believe!

twinklestar2 Mon 24-Jun-13 14:40:17

Glad to hear it went ok, mejust.

JuicySausage Mon 24-Jun-13 14:42:33

Wow! Mejust, I'm thrilled for you and look how brave you were! <pins brooch of bravery onto Mejust's chest> Did my bellowing "Freeeeedoooom!" help at all?

NookNook, stop fretting at once! I will not allow it; there is time yet and even if six is the number then so be it...your baby's in their somewhere x

Zammo, yes, that makes lots of sense. I wish I was back at the pre-ET stage: so damned exciting.

Motor, you big softie, almost brought a tear to my eye with that lovely respect to your donor. I merely hoped mine wasn't a Left-wing smackhead with open pores and cankles hmm

Fabuluce, your ace post inspired me to put on my Brand New Heavies album and I actually had an inspired funk around the lounge. Thank you. Your tea sounds horrible. As per usual grin

mejust Mon 24-Jun-13 14:42:41

yeah i thought of a mad lady with a blue face shouting freedom while i was in theatre being strapped in,was quite funny,god knows what i said while i was under.

eurozammo Mon 24-Jun-13 14:52:44

nice job mejust. I'm glad it wasn't as bad as you feared.

Nook 1 good egg is all you need. 6 is loads (and 2 more than I got)

JuicySausage Mon 24-Jun-13 14:59:02

I've decided that high progesterone (high temps) does not equate to a baby sad

resipsa Mon 24-Jun-13 15:03:59

Logical extension, joos is that it doesn't not lead to a baby, either.
Usually, I avoid the double negative but here it has to be said.

resipsa Mon 24-Jun-13 15:05:19

Meant equate of course to follow your train of thought but wrote lead because I have the memory of a...I forget.

resipsa Mon 24-Jun-13 15:08:29

Motor thanks for answering my question. I feel like you. Once you've grown and delivered it, it's yours regardless. Got the number yet? Are they all yours <rubs together hands in greed>?

mejust Mon 24-Jun-13 15:22:33

Just wanted to say thanks for the luck everyonesmile

motor any news on your donors eggs

wishicouldhavealargeMalibu Mon 24-Jun-13 15:38:47

Come on motor we want news grin

Spoke to the clinic, all 11 are still going but not gonna know if they go into blasto stage until transfer so it could still go tits up. Just gotta KEEP THE FAAAAITH <^dances around to gospel music shaking her tush^>

Lifeasafish Mon 24-Jun-13 16:49:27

Just got some wifi and popped in to see how wish/ mejust have done.

mejust I am over the moon for you that it was painless and a great crop. And so relieved strangely enough for you. Well done chick. P.S i love that high/stupid repetitive question/groggy feeling after sedation. I always think - this is what being an addict must be like.

motor thats lovely re the donor. I've decided that if this works out for me I am going to donate some eggs before 35 esp as I am BME and I imagine eggs are low for them. Assuming my eggs are of any use - I keep thinking about mass produced products and how useless they can be.

nook it only takes 1 good quality egg don't forget. I may have superstud ovaries, but it looks more and more like a FET for me rather than fresh. Don't be disheartened.

euro have you ET? You were due in at 11.45? Hope it went well.

wish nearly there!

juicy stop googling, stop temping. Only 3 more days to go. You need a project!

There's a chance that The embryos (if any) will be frozen and implanted later - I think they are expecting the trigger to push my bloods up dangerously. Ah well. Just got the call I'm at 22000... So not as low as I expected, but right direction. More bloods tm.

I feel surprisingly fine - tender tummy, bloated as fuck but I'm getting around. Not being at work probably helps as I do not have to commute although I am going for bloods in rush hour. Time will tell all (yes I'm very chipper!)

This is my

JuicySausage Mon 24-Jun-13 17:47:38

Flipping heck, Fish, you are super-sanguine and cool to boot (although your reading skills are cack: Eurozammo laid yesterday and has ET tomorrow along with our Wish. You're welcome smile) Laughing at your link grin

Thanks for making me grin, Resipsa, you nutter.

Motor, I'm thinking of you.

I can not keep my eyes open in that horrible be-fugged way. Bone-crushingly tired.

mejust Mon 24-Jun-13 17:52:06

nook dont worry ,i have to split my eggs so im a little worried may end up with 9 if lucky or just 6 but it only takes 1 and we have to be positive.they only saw 13 follies but got 18 eggs from me please stay up beat .

life Thanks alotsmile im glad your numbers are falling so is ec thurs?.
i worked myself up and my blood pressure was sky high in there but it really wasnt too bad,i did walk to theatre and get my legs strapped in but they worked to keep me calm.

motor where are you ,whats the verdict?

mejust Mon 24-Jun-13 17:54:23

oh wishgreat all 11 eggs doing well good luck for transfer

twinklestar2 Mon 24-Jun-13 17:55:59

Juicy - being tired is a good sign......

MotorcycleMama Mon 24-Jun-13 18:11:21

euro yes, I think it is standard for embies to be transferred day 2 if the number is low. My clinic said they would do the same if I had fewer than three. It makes sense, as there are no others to compete against, so they should just be in the best environment, which is inside you. It only takes one!
fabulance I want your dinner (minus the chicken as I'm vegetarian) - it sounds delicious. Mine will be leftover Bortsch, asparagus, and any other leftovers I can find in the fridge.
Hi to noks twinkle resipsa juicylubes and anybody I've missed.
Ah mejust so glad it went smoothly and you are now resting up at home. 18!! Well done. Can't wait to hear how they progress.
nook don't panic about the number of follicles. Things change rapidly and you may end up with more eggs than that. Even if you don't, you could still have a fewer number of good mature eggs.
11 still going wish- couldn't be better!
Life that made me laugh, comparing yourself eggs to bargain battery ones rather than high end organic free-range just because you got lots of them! I reckon they're like Burford Browns (my favourite).

As for me, we got 8 eggs, so donor must have produced 16. They had told me on Friday that there were only 10 follicles, so I was worried there wouldn't be enough to share, but the number is encouraging. Three of our 8 were immature, so rejected. The 5 remaining have been ICSI'd and they will call me tomorrow morning to say how many have fertilised. A reasonable start.

MotorcycleMama Mon 24-Jun-13 18:16:51

life I've just re-read my post, and just wanted to say that my comparing your eggs to Burford Browns was not related to you being BME, just that in my opinion they are the best quality eggs (as I'm sure are yours)!

JuicySausage Mon 24-Jun-13 18:22:22

*"YEEEEEEEHAAAAAAAAH!" Motor, that is just terrific! Well done your lovely donor. More importantly: what is Bortsch, pliz? Sounds like homeless Czech innards (in which case, can I have the recipe?)

Mejust, are you wearing your badge?

Twinkle, tell us how you are feeling, we won't shout x

JuicySausage Mon 24-Jun-13 18:23:28

Bold fail: "YEEEEEEEEEHAAAAAAAAAH!!!" is what I was actually shouting.

eurozammo Mon 24-Jun-13 18:24:19

I agree motor. IOTO. One was enough to get me my BFP last time, even though it didn't last.

JuicySausage Mon 24-Jun-13 18:24:55

Twinkle, I meant we won't shout if you're feeling rubbish and dispirited or owt.
