Egg retrieval

Hi all! I’m having my first egg retrieval at the end of this week. I was just wondering if anyone could give advice. Did you take off from work? If so, how many days? Any suggestions for before or after? Trying to prepare myself 😬

I had mine last year. My experience was pretty rough and I was not setup properly by my nurse staff. I had ALOT of follicles and was close to being overstimulated. Therefore my healing was harder. It took me a week to fully recover and another week for the bloating to go down. If you have normal level of follicles this might not be the case for you and you would recover under more normal circumstances.

Sorry to hear that, get lots of rest and plenty of fluids. Everyone is different so it's hard to know how we are going to be after certain procedures. Hope all went well during retrieval x

I actually had mine Friday but recovery for me has been super hard. I’m super uncomfortable and have been on and off nauseous 😞 I’m hoping over the next few days I’ll start feeling better.

I had mine at the end of last year. It was on a Monday... I’m a teacher and the day after was a teacher work day so I didn’t have to do too much. I was fine the first two days but by Wednesday I thought I was dying because I was bleeding and hurting. My principal found me a sub and sent me home. I slept and rested the whole day and night and I felt better. I’m sure everyone is different but if you could take one extra day off to rest it may be beneficial. I thought I was better off than I was and I think I did too much the next day which sparked the pain and bleeding. Sending prayers and baby dust!!!!

I'm due mine in a week or so and I was advised to take a week off! To be honest from what I've heard it's less about how you feel and more about what your body needs...having said that I know not all headteachers are as understanding as mine so you might be in more of a rush to get back to work but I'd always say this is way more important than a job. Good luck xx
