I feel like this * 5 days stimming

Ugh.... I've stimmed for 5 days (tonight will be 6) and I'm starting to feel like this:

I don't remember feeling this bloated last time... but, I suppose the protocol *is* more aggressive this round, so perhaps this is as to be expected?  I hope I don't need to go for 12 days this time around.

I suppose I'll just wait around for the oompa loompas to take me to the juicing room.

Re: I feel like this * 5 days stimming

  • Ugh I'm sorry. :( I'm afraid of getting that way too early... Tonight is day 5 for me and I'm okay but just starting to feel some stuff so am now worried about where this will go in the next couple days!

    Me: 32  DH: 33  Married: March 2004

    July 2006: started TTC
    2008: HSG (normal), couple rounds of clomid through gyno

    2008 - 2010: dragging my feet out of fear and procrastination
    October 2010: first consultation with RE, dx PCOS and fibroids (DH slightly low count/motility)
    Oct. 2010 - Dec. 2012:  In DENIAL! avoided the issue because I was scared of surgery
    January 2013: returned to RE, fibroids grew significantly
    February 2013: second HSG, fibroids pushed on tubes which blocked them somewhat
    March 2013: MRI to determine what type of surgery may be necessary
    July 29, 2013: fibroids (5) removed via robotic laparascopy
    August 2013 - Nov 2013 : benched due to recent surgery

    IUI #1, Dec. 24, 2013, BFN 
    IUI #2, Jan. 25, 2014, BFN
    IUI #3, Feb. 25, 2014  BFN
    IUI #4 canceled due to lack of response to letrozole
    IUI #4.1 April 28, 2014, BFN
    May 16, 2014: wtf consult, start prepping for IVF in June and add injects for one last IUI in the meantime
    IUI #5 started letrozole and bravelle but canceled after HSG led to new diagnosis
    May 21, 2014: third HSG, tubes blocked, one at the beginning, one hydrosalpinx??
    June 11, 2014: consult, approved to move on to IVF because the hydro is not completely blocked therefore allowing fluid to move through slowly rather than backwards
    IVF #1 August 8, 2014 - 3dt of 2 embryos, BFN
    September 17, 2014 - 4th HSG, the right tube is very patent (open!!) dye went straight through this time. Weird!
    October 2, 2014 - started metformin treatment
    November 14, 2014 - blood work, brought A1C down from 5.8 to 5.5
    November 26, 2014 - RE finally back from vaca and reviewed my chart, no more IVFs for rest of calendar year
    December 1, 2014 - Right after Thanksgiving, I called a new clinic and got in right away! Plan for IVF
    December 17, 2014 - ER! 29 retrieved (!!), 16 mature, all 16 fertilized (ICSI)
    IVF #2 December 20, 2014 - 3dt of 3 embryos, BFN

    We are done with treatment unsuccessfully. :(


    PAIF/SAIF/All Welcome!

  • Hopefully, I am just so full of awesome follicles, that my belly needed to expand (to accommodate all of the awesomeness).
    Or maybe I'm turning into a blueberry.  There's a 50/50 chance either way, yeah?

    I had my 1st scan on Wednesday morning, and my 2nd will be tomorrow morning.  My RE only measured 4 on Wednesday, so I'm hoping my ovaries have been busy the last 2 days.

  • Looks like at least one of my ovaries was busy, anyway.
    I had a scan this morning, and right had 10, 11, and 4.
    But, lefty had 7 different follicles, most of which were 9 or more.

    So, hooray, for bloating with purpose.
