:goodluck: Thinking about you today!
Good luck! Sending you lots of T&Ps :)
Thanks everyone. We retrieved 7 eggs. I was surprised since I had a lot more follicles at my last US, even though I knew a bunch of them were small. I was hoping for 10. I guess all but 9 were too small, and we got 7. Now I'm wondering what happened to the other 2, but I didn't think to ask the doctor at the time. Did he miss them or something?? We waited a while beforehand and he was really busy. I mentioned that 7 was what we got last time (only 5 were mature though). We know that didn't end like we wanted it to. But the doctor said 7 was "enough", especially since they are going to to ICSI on them. Crossing my fingers for good fertilization this time.
Anyway, not to sound like a complainer, but I feel infinitely worse today than after my last ER. I can't kick the anesthesia and I started having horrible pain/cramping on the way home. I took 3 ibuprofens and feel better, but I'm really bloated up. It might be partially my stomach/GI. I really hope it gets better soon, like today.
Congrats on getting 7 eggs. Some follies can be empty. Not all follies have eggs in them. Hopefully things turn out different than last time.
Sorry you aren't feeling the best. Rest up and take it easy. I remember being really crampy and in so much pain on the way home from my 1st ER. Idk if it was gas or what. I also thought maybe there were smaller follies that they didn't take anything out of that maybe ruptured. It was awful. I had a 2hr ride home and we had to pull over because I was going to throw up from the pain. We were going to stop at an ER we passed by but the pain stopped. It seemed to stop as fast as it came on. Hopefully you continue to feel better.
I didn't even think about all the other small follicles. I had 14 at the last ultrasound and we only took 7. What does happen to the others? They rupture or reabsorb?
Idk what happens to them. I would think one of the two...rupture or reabsorb but I'm not sure which.
I hope you recover quickly. You're just 2 days behind me. It's all so scary and exciting.
I'm sorry that you aren't feeling well. Rest up and take care of yourself. 7 is a great number!! Try to remember that every cycle is different. T&Ps are with you!
Well, I am not doing well. I am in horrible pain in my abdomen and under my ribcage and both shoulder blades. It hurts to breathe. I saw my doctor, who saw fluid behind one ovary and at my diaphragm. On the way to his office, I nearly passed out, was dizzy, sweating, ghostly white. It was so scary. He doesn't feel that I'm still bleeding, but that probably one of my ovaries was bleeding after the procedure. He doesn't feel it's anything life threatening, but offered to admit me to the hospital for pain control. I didn't want to go, but now I'm sort of wishing I had. I still hurt so bad and now we'd have to drop the kids off at the neighbors if my husband drove me to the hospital. My doctor is on call and said to call him if I want to go, but I am just going to try to make it through. I am taking pain killers and ibuprofen (which I just took-hope it works miracles)
My husband is not happy. I am not either. I am pretty sure this is the last straw, the final sign that I need to end this. I mean, I just want another baby, not a bizarre or crazy request, but it's just not working out. My husband would never agree to round 3 after this. We will see what we get for embryos this time, and one way or the other, this is the last time we are doing this. This is way too hard on my family.
