I want to die. Keel over, kick the bucket, etc.

My E2 only got up to 2100 at its highest. I shouldn't have OHSS, right? So why is this so bad??

This weekend BLEW. I was in bed from 11am Friday when I got home till this morning. Seriously, I didn't even get up to take a shower. So gross. That's how horrible it was.

It's getting SLIGHTLY better every day, but not significantly, not in that way when you say to yourself, "Oh wow, i feel better today." Just in the "I don't want to put a gun to my stomach and pull the trigger, but this still hurts pretty damn bad."

It's my stomach. Not even my uterus, which would make sense, but higher up - like, right below my boobs down to my belly button. My uterus is a bit sore, sure but nothing like my stomach. It's like the worst stomachache ever x 1,000,000. I think I have asciites or whatever that's called. A lot of fluid in my stomach. I actually had it after my first, terrible heart surgery, so I remember the pain (it actually was not THIS bad, believe it or not).

I just caved and called my RE just to make sure. I don't see how it can be OHSS since I didn't have THAT high of E2, but maybe it has to do more with the number of follicles you have, not your E2 number? With 17 maybe that's why?

All I know is that I don't understand how people with actual high E2 manage this. This is effing miserable. I can't do anything. I also am so so thirsty- like cotton mouth thirsty. I did Google enough to keep downing coconut water and gatorade, but STILL. Miserable I tell you.

I have the lowest pain tolerance, I swear. You would think it would be better given all my surgeries and stuff, but nope. Ugh.


  1. Ugh, I'm so sorry you're miserable. High levels or not, you can't control how crappy you feel. I hope you get to feeling better soon!

  2. bleh, that sucks! I hope it goes away soon. Will it delay your transfer or are they planning FET anyway?

  3. I think the number of follicles has a lot to do with it, since each one they retrieve leaves fluid behind. And your ovaries are swollen from it all... it has to be uncomfortable :( My last inject/IUI we had 6 follicles at trigger, E2 was over 2,000, and I was in so much pain that week... I'm sure it's nothing compared to what you're going through though!

    Hope it gets better soon.

  4. Hope you get to feeling better soon!
