I have NEVER been so uncomfortable in my ENTIRE LIFE.
This all started on Friday after egg retrieval. I had such painful gas and bloating that I was getting really sharp pains, and almost was in tears a couple times. I thought it would go away, at least by the next day. Well it’s now 3 days later and it has not relented. I have such bad gas pressure and bloating, I look like I’m about 4 months pregnant. My husband tells me I look fine, but I know better. No matter what I do, it hurts. When I’m laying down it kind of helps, but as soon as I stand up, I feel it again.
Now, 1dp2dt, I’m bound up again, on top of all that. I don’t know how I’m going to go back to work tomorrow. This is like a constant thing. And I highly doubt that any of my pants are going to button. I’ve been trying to eat high sodium/potassium foods, and I drank gatorade all day on Saturday for some electrolytes, like they recommend for people with OHSS, but it didn’t help much.
Any other tips? This is kind of a nightmare. Is this really common after retrieval and ET? Any and all suggestions are welcome.
On another note, I survived day 0, and I’m at day 1dp2dt. I cannot believe how much longer I still have to wait to be able to test. I also can’t believe that 2 embryos are just floating around in the top of my uterus. I hope they’re still kicking, and have grown at least to 8-cells since yesterday. Hopefully tomorrow or the next day they will start implanting.
This is so fucking nerve wracking. I’m so worried about #2 and 6. Like, did they even survive being moved from the catheter into my uterus? I have no idea. I know it’s a better environment for them, but I can’t help but worry about all of it. I’ve already shed a few tears today, although I feel like my depressed mood has a lot to do with my constant stomach issues.
Sorry for all the bitching. I’ve been complaining enough to my poor husband, I thought I’d vent to the blogosphere.
Enjoy your Labor Day!
