Just a quick post to say that today I had the egg harvest and it all went well!
The clinic and the staff were totally amazing, and I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect place to have had the procedure. I will be posting more about the lead up to the harvest and the harvest itself soon, in the form of a diary that I kept to document each of the past few days.
For now, however, I will say that I have been told that by looking at the eggs harvested under the microscope, doctors have been able to observe that they are perfectly healthy and mature, ready to be fertilised whenever that day comes. I was also told that if I ever wish to have my eggs genetically tested then that service will be available to me.
That is all obviously fantastic news, news that was very much needed, and I feel much more positive about the whole thing now. I am celebrating by eating mini eggs and Cadbury eggs; basically, my diet today will consist of egg related foods as a tribute to my ickle little eggs that are now so happily, albeit probably a little coldly, sitting in a freezer somewhere in London.
Updates soon, hope everyone has had an eggcelent day.
