Ugh, I have no idea. I have lost count on what mile we are on. I have given myself three follistem injections and I am sick! I have a headache, my ovaries hurt, and I want to puke! I am good if I am laying down but once I sit up or walk around, I get a bit dizzy at times as well. I have cut my lupron dose down to half.
I know all of these side effects are normal, but because I have PCOS, my change of getting OHSS is higher. I go to the doctor tomorrow to see how the eggies are doing and see what the next step is. It will probably be to continue on for a couple more days and then get checked again. My ovaries are typically slower on the meds than other woman. It takes me a few more days to get where I should be. I am hoping that due to the way I feel, the meds are working.
It becomes more real everyday. I mean, hubby and I know what we are doing, but it does not seem real until you actually go through the steps. The what if's are starting to come up. What if I do get OHSS and my transfer is canceled. What if it does not work...that is the one that hurts the most. How will I react if it does not work? How will I find the strength to do this again? I realize that not all women have a baby after one round of IVF. But, some do. You never know where you will fall into place.
