Just swell. (CD6)

Apparently having your e2 go up by eighteen-fold in four days causes quite the ruckus in one's mid-section. My tummy has been progressively more tender through the day, and I swear, if you were bored enough, you could watch it grow like bamboo. I swear.

Needless to say, this is the first of what I'm sure will be many uncomfortable days ahead. All for a damned good cause, but uncomfortable nonetheless. I am so antsy to get a peek at what's going on in there, which I will in about ten hours. I'm also grateful that my body is responding. I was so doubtful after the piss-poor response we were getting with the IUI stims. Apparently Follistim just does this body good. I made sure to get some protein in with dinner, and had my first bottle of Gatorade. Weight gain as of this morning was 1.6 lbs, though I'm not sure how much of that is ove bloat and how much is sugar bloat

Also? I know I said it yesterday, but I'm so glad I went on a run yesterday. I'm feeling the way I thought I would today, which means no more running for a while. Glad I still did while I could.

10 more hours...

  2. I'll be anxiously awaiting your update. Your E2 levels sound very promising, so I hope that means there are lots of eggs cooking in there. :)

  4. Lord to I know the swollen belly feel! My doctor had me taking Fiber Con three times a day to help avoid OHSS. Something you might want to ask yours about, too. It also helps a lot with the, *ahem*, less than lady-like complications of swollen ovaries. :) Good luck at your appointment!

  5. I haven't hopped on the IVF train quite yet, but I remember when I was donating eggs it helped to hunch over. Standing up straight made me feel like my ovaries were going to fall out. Best of luck to you! Yeah for PCOS ovaries during IVF! Something to be thankful for!
