    Kizmetzing Have you given in to poas yet?

    I spoke to Kate today. Looks like I won't be looking at transfer until October. Need to have 2 periods.

    Yeah, need to give those ovaries a rest sunny. Disappointing but worth it in the end.

    spec - you ok? Hope all went well.

    AFM - I've peed on sticks and I'm done with that. Just going to wait it out til Wednesday as I see no point in crushing myself further. I just shouldn't have done it in the first place

    Sorry to hear that, Sunny. Waiting is so frustrating, but see it as time to get your body in tip top condition to nourish your baby.

    Kizmetzing, I admire your will power! Fingers are crossed for Wednesday.

    My bloods and scan went really well. I'm all booked in for egg pick up on Monday. I'm really nervous about OHSS because I have a total of 42 follicles. I know not all will have mature eggs, but that number sounds ridiculous to me!

    What were your first signs of OHSS? And when did you notice something was wrong?

    Hey Spec! Looks like you are going to have a great haul. Not all of those follicles will mature enough to retrieve, they have to be big enough.
    The positive is you should have lots to work with and hopefully good embies in the end. Are they doing icsi?
    I had 39 follicles on my scan so pretty close to you. Only 27 mature, 22 eggs in those mature ones they drained.
    Are you feeling well?
    What is your trigger injection? Mine was ovidrel.
    As for the ohss, I started feeling uncomfortable the weekend before pickup, couldn't eat big meals and a little swollen, uncomfortable, some pain. Thought it was in my head because I knew there were lots of follicles in there. A little weight gain.
    But the trigger and epu made it worse. Woke up from epu absolutely fine, declined pain relief as I wanted to get out asap!! A hot blanket and I was fine.
    That night really bad pain, then swollen above my belly button, felt "hunched" over when walking, lots of pain and could barely eat (felt like there was no room to fit it in). Panadiene did nothing.
    They said I should call them/ go to hospital if I had shortness of breath (I did a little but never got worse) or vomiting, or reduction in volume of pee or colour change.
    Kizmetzing obviously had it much worse than me so could probably give you a different timeline of events.
    Not everyone with lots of follicles gets it and it is varying severity for everyone. I was miserable but fine now. I couldn't work though.
    Try not to worry, the end goal is the embies and baby. The worry and waiting did my head in, I wanted it over!!! I have 2 friends that have gone through ivf and neither of them had even a touch of ohss and have had 6 epus between them. It sounds like on Bub Hub it is the exception to get ohss and Kizmetzing and I have just been unlucky.
    You are in good hands.

    My symptoms were the same as sunny but just couldn't even stand up straight after epu.

    Dont read on if you don't want the details! My case was extreme and my specialist at the time told me last year that I was the worst he'd seen in over ten years, so incredibly unlucky. Back to the story....

    By the next morning I could barely move. Improved the next night while in hospital but started vomiting after I was discharged. Stayed home that night as I was told vomiting is quite normal (FYI, NO IT ISNT). Went to hospital via ambulance the next morning (my OHSS was complicated by type 1 diabetes too). I was admitted via emergency then straight into ICU. There for 24 hours then on a ward where I was put on controlled fluids via IV and gained about 8.6kg in fluid. I couldn't eat because I literally had no room left in my abdo. About day 5 I started to go into renal failure and tried to discharge myself from the hospital because I felt they were making me sicker (which they were!). Prue had been in and saw me earlier that day and had put a directive in my chart to stop the IV fluids and if I stopped producing urine, to put me on a different kind of drip (creatinine from memory?). But when I did stop producing, the doc that came in said to just put me back on Iv fluids. I said no and he basically told me that I would do as I was told so I asked for the paperwork to discharge. Then the nurse had an almighty row with the doc saying I was right and not to give me more fluids (this was about 1am). Finally hung the Iv I was asking for and within 24hours I was Much better and discharged in 48.

    I swore at the time I would never go back. I had two frosties from 14 eggs and I was devastated. But one of those frosties became my precious daughter. I put the next frostie back 4 years later and have since done two stim cycles. One of which was so easy I could have gone back to work in the afternoon after EPU. I can vouch that it is worth it in the end xxx

    Thanks so much for sharing your stories. I like to know worst case scenarios, so anything better than that is a bonus.
    I'm feeling really good, which is surprising me! I'm a little tender if I sit in certain positions, but most of the time I have no symptoms at all.
    It is reassuring to hear that it is less common than it seems on here, and also great to hear that after being hospitalised you still say it's worth it!
    I'm triggering with Pregnyl tomorrow morning, so hopefully all goes well from there.
    I can't thank you both enough, it's so nice to talk to people that have been through it. So hoping you both have BFPs in the not too distant future!

    Oh Kizmetzing that sounds bloody awful. Glad you stood your ground to the doctor, and good on that nurse for standing up to him too. Beautiful daughter by the way.
    When is your blood test?
    Spec I wasn't sure what to write to you as I didn't want to stress you out.
    Keep us posted.
    Just reading the Monash Ivf notes, apparently 1% severe ohss, 5% experience symptoms that can be unpleasant.
    You are talking to one of the 1% and a 5%!! The odds for you not getting it must be very good!!

    Blood test is Wednesday (it is due Monday but I can't make it in til Wednesday as we are going to the snow). I am holding out so little hope that I actually just entered a 15km trail run in September.

    I love over my girl more than life, thanks for your kind words, I think she's gorgeous too. I hope beyond words that both of you have your chance.

    Kizmetzing, I'm sorry to hear that your hopes are so low. I can only imagine how the whole process would seem less and less likely to work after so long.

    You are certainly lucky to have your daughter, and I'm sure she brings you so much joy. But that doesn't take away the pain from this time and this baby that you've been dreaming of for so long. I hope that you haven't had to deal with insensitive comments from people that don't understand.

    I have absolutely everything crossed for you!

    Sunny, thanks for the reassurance. The odds are very low and I've visited Dr. Google for tips (lots of protein and drinks with electrolytes). Not convinced they will help, but it puts my mind at ease knowing I'm trying something to avoid it!
    How is your recovery going?

    Hi ladies,

    Kizmetzing it isn't over yet. Keeping my fingers crossed for a happy surprise for you. Enjoy the snow.

    Spec wishing you all the best for tomorrow for epu. Hoping for lots of embies for you.

    As for me, af has arrived, still sore in those areas but better every day. Roll on October so I can get this embie in. Have started on a big clean out so I can open up some space. Keeping a very positive frame of mind that I will have to decorate a nursery soon. Lol. Fingers crossed we all do.....
