Late onset OHSS anyone? — The Bump
Pregnant after IF

Late onset OHSS anyone?

Hi, I hope to be joining you all soon. I just got my BFP last week and have my first u/s scheduled for Thursday, so fingers crossed all goes well:) 
However, I have been suffering with really bad OHSS since about 5dp5dt. It hasn't gotten any better and I feel like I'm about to pop. I've gained about 20 lbs, can't breathe, can't eat can barely move, and have to sleep on the couch propped up with pillows. Has anyone else suffered with this? Just wondering how much longer I have before this starts going down and I can function normally again!

  • I had ohss but I didn't gain that much. Have you worked with your RE? That's a lot to gain, they may need to drain some off.

  • You need to talk to your doctor about this if you haven't already.  OHSS can be really serious and if it's not getting better you might need more drugs or even to be admitted. 
    Look after yourself and seek help. 
  • Thanks everyone, I have talked to my RE about it- they are aware. They gave me some nausea pills and basically just said I will probably have to "ride it out." It's been about two weeks and I can't imagine going on much longer like this:(

  • @taradise99 - I am surprised they are not alarmed by your weight gain. Have they done an ultrasound? I was 5dpt and was having difficulty breathing from my OHSS and they did an ultrasound and watched me closely. Thankfully I only gained like 6lbs and the fluid dissipated quite fast so they were not as concerned. My symptoms almost 100% subsided after 2 weeks.

  • I am shocked that your doctor thinks you don't need to do anything. 20 pounds in such a short amount of time is cause for concern, not nausea pills. If it were me experiencing this I'd definitely go to the ER right away.

  • Well I went to the dr yesterday and they did send me in to the hospital to get drained. They drained over 4 liters of fluid. However, they did say it may and probably will come back, so I'm just hoping that is not the case. Thanks for all of your input!
