I knew that I was at risk due to the amount of follicles but I wasn't super ready for the way I am feeling at the moment. First let's start with the way that I look. My stomach appears to be four months pregnant, which would be awesome if I was pregnant. And to top it all off I waddle as well! Taking a full breath is out of the question. I haven't had a bm since Tuesday morning and I know that I need to but due to the soreness in my stomach.. ouch. A girl at work is going to get me some Milk of Magnesia in a few minutes to see if that helps anything along. I have gained over three pounds but I am keeping track to make sure it isn't more than 3 a day. If it calms down we will have a five day transfer on Sunday. If it keeps getting worse this cycle is canceled and we will have to freeze the embryos and do a FET. Of course I am praying for the OHSS to calm down and do the transfer on Sunday (the day before my birthday). If we have to freeze the embryos I may have a meltdown. I have went through all of the discomfort and pain to get to this point!
Yesterday morning we got the fertilization report and out of the 18 mature eggs 15 fertilized. Today when I got the call I was so nervous to find out how many had stopped growing. Well to my surprise the other three caught up and we now have 18 embryos! At least something is going right!
I want to thank Courtney for all of the great advice and help to get me through the OHSS. I had beef jerky and Gatorade for breakfast, milk of magnesia as a snack, and I will be having chicken noodle soup, peanut butter and another beef jerky by the end of the day.
Your good thoughts and prayers would be greatly appreciated!
