We're on

I've had the scan.

I've had the blood test.

I've had the call.

There are 14 - 16 likely follicles (I was supposed to take the growth hormone).

My oestrogen levels have ... er ... levelled.

I inject myself with Pregnyl (to get my ovaries ready to release the eggs) at midnight tonight - way past my bedtime.

I go in at 8am on Monday morning for egg collection at 1pm.

Wish me luck, I'll see you the other side.

  9. Best of luck!! Once again apologies for not commenting very often. I am in a much busier job now so no blogging on the job and I am just too knackered to start blogging once I get home in the evening. But I have been keeping an eye on you. I'm keeping fingers, toes crossed for you (but not legs as I'm still trying to get knocked up myself!). I'm thinking of going to London for a weekend sometime over the coming months. I would love to meet up with you if you're up for it, hopefully for a celebratory orange juice!

  33. Good luck! I am thinking of you. I work out it's about 2 hours until you have your wee eggies collected. What a fabulous haul it will hopefully be.

    Hope the actual procedure goes well too and that you are not too sore afterwards.
