Egg collection yesterday - feeling really flat today
itseasierstill · 20/11/2018 06:57
Egg collection yesterday, 6 collected from one side. (Couldn't see other side) 4 fertilised.
Just feel dreadful today, flat, sad, emotional- just want to cry and sore.
Went into work and had to leave as felt so overwhelmed.
DH has gone away for a few days and I'm feeling so sorry for myself. I've literally slept all day.
Can anyone help cheer me up ?!

Your hormones will be all over the place. It's a bad time for your husband to be away. Is your mum or a good friend around today?

When is the planned day for having embryos put back?
Are you going into work today? It would be perfectly reasonable not to. Rest, put your feet up, do some online shopping and treat yourself!

I'm an ex pat so don't have my family around. Just want to cry, feeling utterly dreadful.

Sorry you’re feeling so down . Are you upset about the number of eggs collected?
Earlier in the year I also only had 6 eggs collected and 3 fertilised. Of those, 2 made it to blast and were suitable for freezing, although not the highest grading. Had to have a freeze all but had transfer of 1 embryo last month and I’m now 6 weeks pregnant, with my other frostie in the freezer. Small numbers can still get the results we’re looking for. I hope you start to feel better soon x

Doing a frozen cycle, that won't happen until the NY as we didn't want to do transfer then travel (we are heading home for Christmas)

I think it's just hitting home the enormity of it all. I guess 6 wasn't a lot with 4 getting though to the next stage.
I use exercise as my stress relief, I can hardly walk let alone train plus I feel so bloated which is really getting me down. Been eating shit for the past couple of days and beating myself up over that. DH bought me lots of nice food before he went away, but that all involves effort - all I want is a glass of wine and a Chinese. (But can't get either as he is away with the car) pathetic really .....

I’m sorry to hear you’re feeling so down - I think it’s quite normal to feel dreadful the day after EC though - I’m surprised your clinic didn’t recommend you have the day off work! You’ll be in lots of physical pain and emotionally/hormonally all over the place. Try to relax and do some nice things for you and hopefully in a couple of days you’ll be feeling more excited for your transfer. Good luck to you! xxx

Your numbers are the same as mine 6 collected and 4 fertilised, all 4 of mine developed but 2 tailed off and were binned 1 was transfered but was good enough to freeze and 1 is in the freezer. I was really upset about the low numbers as others I knew had in the teens collected and 7 or 8 developing but my one transferred is now a 23 week bump currently doing somersaults whilst I eat my breakfast. Good luck when you do have your transfer it's very cliche but it only takes one and the thing with cliches is they are only cliches because of how true they are

I had four fertilised from 7 collected (and I had severe OHSS, doesn't make any bloody sense!) Two frozen embryo transfers later and I have a boy and a girl, 2 years apart.
I appreciate I am one of the (very) lucky ones but so many times I felt despair and hopelessness. You've made it this far. Keep going and keep your chin up.
