I hardly slept last night. I could barely breathe. I’m incredibly bloated too.
The fertility clinic nurses are concerned this is the start of OHSS so I’m headed back to see my doctor today.
I’m trying to have lots of protein and drink Gatorade (the sodium is actually good for you in combating OHSS!) but I think I am starting to waddle like a duck which isn’t a good sign!
In better news, I spoke to the embryologist today. Of my 34 eggs 19 were mature and 11 fertilized! That’s great news! Better than the 7 Doug and I hoped for! We still have a whole cricket team haha.
They don’t pull them out of the incubators every day so it’ll be 48 hours until I get another update.
I almost feel like this wait is harder because it’s a process I’m not actually involved in. I can’t eat the right foods or take the right medications or do the right amount of exercise. This is entirely out of my hands. My little eggs are in the hands of scientists now, but even they can only do so much.
I just have to wait it out.
