Update

13 Mar

I’m really uncomfortable so I am just going to update real quick.

 When I went in for my appointment today the RE did an ultrasound and more bloodwork. She said I definitely had a ton of fluid in my abdomen and that my ovaries were huge – officially OHSS. They said that as long as my bloodwork comes back ok (aka, as long as my kidneys are not being effected) that my transfer will go on as planned tomorrow morning at 8:30am. Please keep your fingers crossed for us. We won’t get the lab results until we get out there in the morning.

I’ve been a bit better today – at least I haven’t been puking – but I’m EXTREMELY uncomfortable. I’ve done better today though because the RE told me that I can only have small amounts of liquid and food portions can be no larger than my fist. That seems to be helping.

I’ll try to update – or have Hubby update – tomorrow.

    I’m glad to hear your feeling better. I have never experience OHSS but it sounds horrible. Hope everything goes as planned tomorrow. Good Luck

    You MUST be uncomfortable to be updating your blog in the middle of the night! I hope you feel better soon and your transfer happens as it is supposed to!

    REALLY, REALLY, REALLY praying for you, hon!

    My one friend had the same thing happen to her, so I am very sympathetic about the swelling and uncomfortableness.

    I’m rooting for you and those embs :o)

    hey! i just wanted to let you know i had an e2 of 7800 at transfer and ended up with severe OHSS too. i was vomiting and had diarrhea, severe abdominal pain, 10+lb weight gain and swollen ovaries (and 6 wks later, they are still markedly swollen). anyway, i tell you this because i had a paracentesis (actually a culdocentesis) in which 2.5l of free fluid in the abdomen was removed….and i felt so much better almost instantly. seriously, i went in puking and unable to stand up straight and i came out able to walk and drink. so maybe this is something you and your RE can consider.
    good luck!
