Rittzy, i reckon your blog is a great idea. Such a good way to keep track of your journey. I love Christian
Fortitude, yup! I've def chunked up, i reckon I've put on at least 5kgs since Jan on ivf. If anything, i've eaten less because of stress or an upset tummy from all the drugs. Don't you just love hormones! I've constantly got a bloated belly, and generally just look grey and worn out. I need to have a year worth of facials i reckon!
Girl X, yeah they can make you feel really crappy. I felt the same. I actually found they saved the worst for last, the crinone. Made me so down and anxious and just feeling yukky. Couldn't wait to get off the stuff.
KandP, geese louise! You are on a consort of stuff! It'll be worth it when you get your bubba

OK so maybe it is all the early morning clinic visits, maybe it is the stress of wondering how my follicles are progressing, maybe it is the stress of wondering if this cycle will work (or if it will ever work) or maybe it is all of those? However, I have been feeling a bit emotional- not crying as such but feel like I need some extra cuddles and bit sad. I suppose I could conclude it is the new addition of the antagonist drug Orgalutran (also called Orangutan by my DH and myself LOL) as I felt OK until I started that on Thursday night. But I suspect it is the culmination of IVF worries in general- the timing is also when I had my last US and was a bit worried about follicle numbers (or lack there of).
Thoughts on the antagonist part of the cycle?

I had the same reaction when I started the orgalutran, which my dh calls orgasmatron, ha, as if there is anything orgasmic about it. But that was only my first stimmed cycle, my second stimmed cycle I felt fairly normal I think, from memory. I think a lot of it is fear of the unknown with first cycle, then if you have to do another fresh, you are more relaxed, because you know whats going on, and what to expect.

I am definately feeling the sulky side effects of Orgalutran. In a right mood and tired as anything. Still think the things surrounding me are impacting me but my ability to shrug it off is less. Can't wait to get off this one.

Yup fortitude, i felt totally crap too. So up and down, and sometimes so irrationally angry that i was ready to smash plates in the sink they can wreak havoc with your system sometimes, hope you are surviving!
How are your follies going?

Sariele - I was on Crinone following the transfer & had a really bad tummy. Also suffered from OHSS. Couldn't keep any food. It was awful! It also turned out I was pregnant with that cycle - was also our first - so not sure if the pregnancy contributed to it.

thats good, you've got at least 4 getting to the right size. what day are you up to? you can also have follies/eggs that "hide". I went into EPU with 8 follies and ended up with 12 eggs i think.
I got my official BFP on friday! But i'm now in torturous "limbo land" waiting for my HCG to go up at the right levels. Another bt tom.
