1st ivf anxieties

Hi, I'm new to this so bear with me, not quite got the hang of the lingo yet! I have had 3 failed iui's and on first ivf attempt just now. I have been on stimms (gonal f) for 11 days and had scan today that showed follicles of 18, 16, 16, 14 and a few 12's. My womb lining was 17. I got a call from clinic today to say I have to trigger tomorrow for egg collection Thursday morning. I'm a bit anxious as I don't think I have many follicles, and concerned because they are quite small they may not contain eggs. Also worried at my lining being possibly too thick? I read that it should be 15 or under for best chances of implantation. The nurse said today my estrigen level was over 9000 and not to take any more gonal f prior to trigger tomorrow.
Has anyone experienced success with similar numbers and lining etc. Sorry for long post, anxieties are running away with me.

Hi clarabel there is an October cycle buddies thread that there are a few ladies going through Ivf just now that may be able to help, I honestly can't remember about womb lining but it looks like your follicles are growing nicely so fingers crossed for a few eggs.

Good luck with everything

Hi Sasha, thanks so much for your quick response and words of encouragement. I'll have a look in the cycle buddies forum. Probably need to stop reading so much but can't help myself. :S

Hi Clarabel,

I agree, it sounds like your number & size of follicles are all fine. Sorry but I'm not sure what the lining should be.

All the best for EC tomorrow.

Don't worry about quantity. It only takes one or two good ones for it all to work out. Last cycle I only had 5 eggs, which resulted in 2 blastocysts transferred, 2 blastocysts frozen and a pregnancy.

Hi Dazzle,
Thanks so much for your response. I had the egg collection done yesterday and they got 4 eggs.
I got a phone call first thing this morning saying they had 2 embryos and want to do a 3 day transfer on Sunday.
IVF is all new to me but I can't help feeling disappointed that I only got 2, and that I'm not able to go to 5 day blastocyst.
Anyway, I know your right and that it only takes one so fingers crossed.
Thanks again, It does help to hear people's stories.

Hi clarabel, I can understand your disappointment, I had 23 eggs but only 4 embryos and one didn't survive so only ended up with three, I know it's difficult to think it only takes one but on my first go I got my bfp and a beautiful boy, I'm wishing you all the luck in the world, I'm having embryo transfer on mon so we will be very close in test dates, there are a few ladies in the oct cycle going through the same as us you should try and pop in there, keep you semi sane on the 2ww

Hi Sasha,
Thank you, it's so helpful to hear positive stories. I have been browsing forums for the past year whilst going through the ups and downs of iui but this is the first time I've posted. Your right we will be testing around the same time. Wishing you all the luck in the world with it. The wait to find out is psychological torture, wish I could sleep through that part.
I'm at glasgow royal, feel like I have been living there this past year.

Yeah Dr Vani is my consultant, he is lovely although I don't see him a lot, mainly the nurses who are all lovely.
I had my iui's done at the nuffield and I think
some of the nurses go between both.

I only had a few follicles and from them only 8 eggs were found. 4 fertilised and one of those became my beautiful son, it is not quantity but quality that counts.

Thanks Grace, your boys are gorgeous. I love to see positive stories. It somehow keeps you going. I'm a bit nervous about getting egg transfer tomorrow. I'm hoping it's just similar to iui, like what I've read because that was fine.
Just hoping these 2 eggs are good uns, because I don't have any eggs to freeze from egg collection. I'm praying this time will be lucky.
Sasha all the very best for your transfer on Monday. I'll check in here hoping for some good news from you too.
Thanks Ladies,

Well it all went smoothly enough, didn't feel a thing. The embryologist said that I had two 7 cell embryos and that they looked ok although one was better than the other. That doesn't mean much to me at all really but just glad Its over and now the wait begins.
Best of luck to you too tomorrow Sasha.

Hi Pip, yes I did have them both put back in. The embryologist and consultant said that would be best but that was my preference anyway. I think going by what they said one embryo was poorer quality but I'm not very sure of what all the numbers mean to be honest. Will google frantically later on I'm sure

Great Sasha, fingers crossed for you that it's a sticky one. :)
My test date is on the 20th, but I've never once made it to test date. AF usually rears it's ugly head before it but hoping this time will be different.
Hope your getting the chance to rest.
