Mild OHSS?

So, really, this bloating is not cool. I look pregnant - my belly is round, instead of the lumpiness I'm used to. And I have sharp ovary pains periodically, like ovulation pains, but worse. They especially happen if I twist while turning over in bed.

Is this mild OHSS? Should I be concerned?

In other news, my stomach seems to be unhappy... is it still called morning sickness if it's exiting the other end?

As Mr. December often reminds me, I'm so gross.

Do you know what your E2 level was at retrieval?

Sister, I'm right there with you. They told me I might have mild/medium OHSS. I have a round Buddha belly, totally retaining water, slight nausea, shortness of breath and no appetite (if you knew me you'd know how unlike me that is).

I was told not to drink water, but Gator.ade and V.8 juice. I've been downing that and vitamin.water.

Hang in there!

I just hope they'll let me transfer tomorrow.

This could be OHSS, or you could have picked up a stomach bug. what's the clinic say?

I have no idea - but I think you should call your clinic. They will be able to tell you. If you do have it, you need to know!!

I am so happy for you!! About the BFP not the ovary pain. I have a similar TTC story, TCC#1 I had a miscarriage after seeing a heartbeat, got pregnant again have a healthy girl, and I am now am TTC#2, and have 1 unsuccessful IUI under my belt. I had an upset stomach similar to you with my successful pregnancy with my daughter, it isn't as common as morning sickness but I think that some women it goes like that.

Hmm... for the latter, I'd suspect you picked up something unrelated hanging around with kids. Surprise, surprise. As for the other - if it doesn't seem like "normal" discomfort and bloating, then call!

You know the only thing that bothers me about Infertilty blogs?

When they finally get the coveted BFP they stop blogging. Dont get me wrong you have every right to be wayyy too busy for the blog but the pages we have come to for ohhh soo long for a really good laugh or for some reassurance of for just a great read - most of the time, vanish. Drats that makes me depressed.
