OHSS is no fun...

So Memorial Day weekend SUCKED. After my retrieval on Friday, I slept almost all day. Naturally I was a lil sore and uncomfortable. Saturday, I was feeling worse. There was a lot of pressure in my abdomen and I was having shooting pelvic pains. By Sunday, I was waddling around like I was 8 months pregnant. It was ridiculous. Monday, I could barely move.

Yesterday, I called the doctor's office and they told me to come in so I could get checked out. Ultrasound showed there was a moderate amount of fluid in my abdomen, a condition called Ovarian Hyperstimulation Syndrome. The name says it all. Thanks, fertility drugs! But, in the overall scheme of things, going through it is worth the end result.
