Ohss.... My life

Jul 21, 2011 - 11 comments





abdominal pain

I'm trying so hard to stay positive but I'm nearly in tears. I couldn't sleep at all last night because I've been in excruciating lower abdominal pain that won't stop. My belly looks like I'm 6 months pregnant and I'm completely nauseated. I showed up at RE office this am and they tell me it's ohss... Nothing they can do... Just take Tylenol, and do I still want the iui?? So I have to hang around the office till 11 for my iui which I'm not looking forward to.

To top it all off, I'm pretty sure I O'd yesterday as my temp jumped this morning and my cm is drying up (see chart). I just don't know why this keeps happening. I'm so frustrated and exhausted and in such a high level of pain and discomfort.

This is simply not working out for me nd I'm feeling like maybe God's trying to tell me something?

Sorry I'm so negative... I hate being this way. It's mostly from exhaustion and pain. Please say a little prayer for me!

Ohhh Cher, I'm so sorry hun!!  The ohss must be aweful!  I would think that should resolve itself very soon now, so hang in there and just try to rest.  As far as the iui, it's okay if you O'd yesterday because they put the little swimmers right up there!  They would still be able to meet up with that eggie or eggies just fine.  It is all so hard and frustrating, I know and everything looks more grim when you feel like c r a p.  Just hang in there sweetie and hopefully it will all be worth it and you wil end up with your BFP in a couple weeks!!  Big Hugs!!

I am sorry you are in so much pain.  I have heard about many girls getting pregnant during this time though.  If possible I would suggest going through with the IUI.  Sending you mountains of baby dust.

I'm so sorry you're in so much pain :(.  I would think they could be a little more compassionate.  I hope your pain and discomfort eases soon and wishing you all the luck in the world with your IUI!!  Big hugs and lots of prayers!!

Thanks ladies. I'm in the waiting room and am going thru with the iui.... I will be happy when I'm at home in bed! I really hope this resolves itself soon, I don't think I could stand another night like last night!

The pain is slightly better and I'm so thankful for that, although the intensity comes and goes.

Sorry I've been such a Debbie downer lately.... You are all so kind.

Hugs to all

Drink Pletny of gatorade, lots of water! chicken broth, beef jerky(things with salt) also smart water for the electrolytes is good. I had OHSS with my last cycle. ANd I can tell you I never drank so much gatorade in my life, My estrogen was over 5k, they couldnt believe how minimal my fluid was being it was so high. But as soon as I knew OHSS I began nipping it. Best of Luck!! ANd keep in mind if you get preggers the symptoms will continue for while.

I'm sorry to hear about your pain!  I hope all your pain is worth it in the end and it will be just a distant memory when you get your BFP!! Hang in there dear!

The cycle I had 5 follies I was in so much pain and I  did not want to move. It lasted a full day, so hang in there. There is not much you can do, but try to take a nap if you can.
