If you’re over 30, ttc over 12 months and wearing nipple tassels under your snowsuit then this just might be the thread for you - if you can prove yourself bitter and evil enough. We’ll be the judge of that. Don your snowsuit , cowbell ready - fill in the BESHtionnaire and prepare to meet our icy glare. This is a marathon, not a sprint.

Nice new fred, cherry.

<Rides in on the back of a snow leopard>

Hags I've had an emotional morning and nearly passed out at the hospital. I need gin, lots of gin.

Nutshell: Egg collection is on Tuesday but Ovaries doing a bit too well so I'm a risk for OHSS (Google it) and there is a chance they'll have to freeze all my embies and not put any back so I have extra scan appts and pills to take. Lots of info to take in and remember and I was there on my own and felt really overwhelmed.

Off for a little nap now to recover.

evilgiraffe Sat 25-Jan-14 12:47:42

<hugs bugs >

Hopefully they've managed to catch it in time to stave off OHSS smile

TheBuggerlugs Sat 25-Jan-14 12:59:00

Me too. They're doing all they can and so am I. Someone on the 10+ thread has just given me some brilliant advice so even if I get it hopefully I can shift it without the need to freeze the embies.

I've just woolfed down a big bar of dairy milk fruit and nuts in less than 3 minutes and now feel a bit sick.

I was planning to do loads today but I'm so washed out I'm having another sofa day instead.

FrankelInFoal Sat 25-Jan-14 14:57:30

Oh Bugs, try not to stress. They've given you advice and options so at least you've not been left to it by yourself. Dairy Milk is definitely a good thing in these circumstances.

TheBuggerlugs Sat 25-Jan-14 16:18:55

After a chat with the nurse that rang me from the clinic with my ec time and a bit of a Google I feel a bit more confident that I know what I can do myself to minimise the risks. I'm still feeling emotionally exhausted today and quite numb. I think I'll have a nice shower and an early night tonight. I know this next week is going to be physically and mentally tough but I know I'll get through it.

Bearfacedchic Sat 25-Jan-14 16:24:22

We're with you Bugs. Glad you're feeling a bit better about it. Of course you can do it because a) you're a BESH and b) you're you. smile Here, have the cod of comfort. I've had it for far too long.

EC is the most stressful bit bugs and that will be over and done with very soon. I guess you are triggering tomorrow?. Once you are past that it is just a fancy smear (ET) and some menkulling.

TheBuggerlugs Sat 25-Jan-14 19:14:21

Yep trigger tomorrow then Monday is drug free (apart from the aspirin and Cabergoline, or crazy pills as GP has named them as the side effects are a bit mental)

ControlGeek Sat 25-Jan-14 19:51:28

bugs sorry you had a shitter of an appointment, and on your own at that. I'm glad the lady on the other fred, and the nurse at your clinic, was able to give you some additional advice. The hard part's nearly over now, then it's just the menkulling you have to worry about.

AFM, after the excitement of getting 16 eggs they then came in to tell me that of all the millions in MrG's deposit, they were struggling to find 16 that actually moved, like, at all. So would we mind hanging fire as MrG might have to go again. God, the poor love. Thankfully we were told about an hour or so later that they had managed to get all they needed. So this is it, definitely our last shot at having 'our' baybee. Bricking it about fertilisation, but it's all out of our hands now. Just got to keep drinking the water, eating the salty stuff and start with the bum bullets tonight. Doner kebab and chips for tea tonight grin

<performs elegant parallel turn sending up sheet of powder and glides to a halt>

Hold tight Bugs. If it's only "a risk" then there's a good chance of it not happening, I guess. Do they not put embies back into someone who has had that? Is that the form?

Geek, how stressful sad. At least they got some in the end. Would there have been any more if he had had to perform again? Doesn't matter now, I guess.

We're going out for someone's birthday this evening to the Chinese. Will I be able to abstain? Hopefully everyone else won't be wasted. Maybe I'll try some of that alcohol free lager. The days of Kaliber are long gone.

eurochick Sat 25-Jan-14 20:21:25

hest HCG (if a pregnancy results) can worsen OHSS so if it is a real risk, I think there is a preference to freeze and put the embies back later.

geek what a stress! I'm glad you got there in the end.

TheBuggerlugs Sat 25-Jan-14 20:39:36

Geek and Euro did you notice any ovulation signs when you were close to EC? My nipples hurt which I normally get before I ovulate, whilst I'm down regging I can't ovulate naturally right?
