Hey everyone! I wrote a big post a few days ago and the system timed me out and I lost it, since then things have been crazy so now I feel like I'm so far behind and out of the loop! I hope everyone is doing well!!
I have been on quite
a rollercoaster ride. I went for u/s and b/w last Thursday, they said I had lots of follies but not big enough and upped the does of my evening stim. I went back for u/s and b/w on Saturday and they took me off stims totally because lots of my follies were big enough but my blood levels were too high. Okay. Back in on Sunday, levels had gone up, not down.
Starting to freak out.
Back in on Monday, just for b/w because they knew my follies were numerous and big enough. Started sobbing at the lab tech (she thought she had really hurt me with the needle, poor woman). She brought in a nurse who talked to me about OHSS and the possibility that they might do ER but not ET because if I did get pg the OHSS would get way worse. Not knowing WTH was going to happen made me completely stressed. And super high estrogen levels = weepy mess.
They found some time for the RE to talk to me and she was very reassuring. She said I could "coast" with no meds for 4 or 5 days without it being a big problem and that the cycle would likely go ahead as planned. Later that day they called and said the lab results showed that my levels had gone down a bit and I triggered on Monday night.
So I have been doing as little as possible, my dh has been fully in charge of my dd (who is missing me and trying to jump on me and my ovaries every second it seems like). I am so bloated and gassy and uncomfortable. Trying to be NOT constipated means I have been eating lots of salad and fruit, but since I am not moving enough I am full of gassy gas!
So this morning was my ER, it went so well!! Except for my dh having to practically break in to our friend's house because she didn't wake up when he got there to drop off dd. The adavan really did the trick for me and they looked back at my chart at how much total sedative/painkiller they gave me last time and gave me that amount right off the bat, rather than doling it out. And I think knowing what to expect made it easier and the RE doing it was fab and very reassuring. I kept telling him I was doing fine and to keep going, empty every possible follicle please!
He said he did and they got....... drumroll please...... 25 eggs. I am so happy.
I am pretty sore though and I think I'm going to pretty much have to hide from my dd for the next day or two, bit guilty.
Sorry for the novel, but I wanted to include my worries about coasting, I see that someone else has just been through that too.
