    Sounds like you have severe hyperstimulation. Mine also hit after the ER. Glad to hear you are in communication with your doctor about the fluid.

    ICSI is a great plan with 7 eggs. I would have done the exact same thing.

    Take care of yourself.

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.
    I think I wrote this exact same post 3 years ago. You sound exactly the way I did the night of my 2nd ER. First the nurse tried telling me it was anxiety. After talking to my RE he said the same thing as your's did about the blood but never offered to see me. I still think I had a case of OHSS even though I had only 6 eggs retrieved. I was essentially bedridden until my 5dt because I was so miserable. I remember it taking all my energy to walk up the stairs. I could only sleep sitting up. I hope you start feeling better. If you need to go to the hospital to get admitted, go! I remember thinking I would never do it again with how miserable I was. But I did another cycle after.

    I hope you start to feel better soon. Hope your fert report is good and you never have to go through this again.

    Hi everyone. It was an eventful night. I went back and forth with my doctor twice and at 10pm he said I should go to the hospital for observation. I thought I could cope with the pain, which was awful, but was worried because I felt dizzy and my blood pressure was low (I was taking it at home). Finally, he said just to go. I didn't take any more vicoden or ibuprofen because I was going to the hospital and by the time I got into a room there, I was in so much pain and getting worse excruciating pains at the end of each breath and with movements. It was ridiculous. I felt better being in the hospital though because I was afraid I was bleeding internally and was scared something would happen to me. Especially after what happened in the afternoon when I almost passed out. So, I went, and got morphine and phenergan, and have never been more loopy in my whole life. I have no idea what family history I told the nurse .

    The doctor said I was bleeding internally, probably from the right ovary, and my hemoglobin dropped from last night to this AM. It dropped again to mid day today, but just a little bit. I guess the internal bleeding is irritating my diaphragm which is why I was/am having so much sharp back/shoulder pain.

    At least I know I am not crazy and/or a wimp and there is a reason for the pain. It has gotten better, but I have been taking either morphine or a double dose of vicoden. I can still tell it's better though because yesterday medicated I felt worse. I hate taking stuff too. I've been sleeping all day because of it. I came home mid day today feeling much more sure that I wasn't going to bleed out and die. My blood pressure was good while at the hospital and the hemoglobin drop was only .2 this afternoon, so they let me go.

    **whining ahead**
    The doctor said of all the ER's they do per year, this happens to about 6 people. There are 6-7 doctors, it is a huge clinic so they see tons of patients. So of course, this happens to me. Now because this happened, there is no chance of trying round 3 if this shouldn't work.
    ***whining over**

    Now, onto the good news. While my doctor was visiting me this morning at the hospital, he said that of our 7 mature eggs, 6 fertilized! I feel good about that. He also said the events of yesterday/today have no bearing on success of ET. I need all the luck I can get now that I am pretty sure this is our last go at IVF. My husband has already said clearly, no more after this.

    As of now, I think we are doing a 5 day transfer. Please send prayers that the little embryos do well!

    I'm glad you made the decision to go to the hospital. Sounds like you really needed to go. How have you been feeling since being d/c?

    Great fert. report. I hope you never have to go through this again!

    I'm keeping anything remote to complaining on this thread. I am feeling better, but wow. It is just my abdomen now, not radiating to my back/shoulders and the pain is less intense, but if I am not dosing the medication every 5 hours, I still hurt, a lot and had an episode of dizziness/nausea this morning. Spoke with the doctor this AM who said they would expect me to feel much better by Friday, but that this is expected after what happened. I've called into work the last two days so I'm mainly focusing on being useless at home.

    I am so glad this is a rare complication, chances are huge that this won't happen to anyone else who is reading this!

    We are still planning on a transfer Saturday, hopefully I am feeling immensely better by then!
