Embryo transfer no.4

I need to update from my last post as I’m behind agaaaaaain… So we had a call from the embryologist the day after egg collection who said they attempted fertilisation with all 14 eggs, and 13 have been successfully fertilised which was great news. They then called me again on Thursday and said 10 wereContinue reading “Embryo transfer no.4”

Surviving the 2ww

This part never gets any easier! It honestly feels like torture, that is the best way I can decribe it. You go through every single emotion through this time. I could go from feeling really positive, excited and happy to negative, anxious, upset and angry in a few hours.

The 2 week wait…

It wasn’t actually 2 weeks, it was 11 days. But oh my god, this was by far THE hardest part of the whole process! Throughout the whole 11 days, every spare second I had, I would be researching. Signs and symptoms of pregnancy, what to expect after embryo transfer, what is the success rate ofContinue reading “The 2 week wait…”

Embryo transfer!!!

February 22nd, we arrived at Oxford Fertility Clinic at around 9am. For embryo transfer you need to have a full bladder, which I found SO difficult. Mainly because I was still very sore from egg collection (egg collection was only 4 days prior to embryo transfer!) and having a full bladder just added to theContinue reading “Embryo transfer!!!”
