Hoping someone can help me on this board.
I had my e/t on 2/11 with 23 follies, 19 mature, 9 fertilized with ICSI, and had my e/t of 2 embies on 2/16. I had mild bloating right after retrieval, which resolved on its own, and have felt great up until the last few days.
My abdomen is very distended, I have been measuring it daily and have had a 2" increase in size around my belly button but for me, I look about 6 months pregnant! I've gained 4 lbs total since the E/R. The bloating gets worse after eating a meal and I've noticed I have terrible stomach pain when eating, and have been taking Tums like crazy to help with the gas pains. I also notice that I'm taking shallow breaths and can't lay down to sleep. It hurts to laugh, sneeze, etc. d/t the abdominal pressure and the pressure also radiates up towards the top of my chest.
I don't want to go to the ER for fear that they will do an abdominal Xray and I'm wondering if I'm pregnant (got a clear + today on a HPT). I know OHSS can develop late and hit hard if you're pregnant. I have read that progesterone can cause gas pain and indigestion and don't want to make a huge deal of this if it's just the hormones!
Any thoughts? I'll call my doc in the AM no matter what but am wondering if I should be more concerned and call ASAP.
