Hi ladies (and KayLa!),

I've lurked in here occasionally - I usually post on the TTC Infertility board but I think I might fit in here a bit better.

Hi Heather,

Even though they said I would be conscience during my ER, I don't remember any of it at all. When they use the Versed (conscious sedation) some people remember, some don't. If you ask for some more relief, I'm sure they will be able to give you some. I truly had no pain at all during my ER. Afterward I was sore, but nothing crazy.

I too was very bloated before and after my ER/ET. Just be sure to keep up drinking Gatorade/salty foods as much as you can and keep an eye on any OHSS symptoms.

Good luck!!!!

Hi Heather, I think for the first cycle, 15 eggs is excellent.
