OHSS is Lame

I made it through the weekend.  And though I had a note from my doctor not to work until Monday, my boss guilt-tripped me into going to work yesterday for an hour and a half.  Standing and bending repeatedly ran a toll on my body and when I got home, I was feeling like complete shit.  Cue the Gatorade guzzling challenge.

Overall, I am feeling better.  My bloating/swelling has gone down and I no longer look 7 months pregnant.  However, I have some serious moments of queasiness and nausea, though I’m trying to get used to it, cause I know I’m going to be confirmed pregnant by the end of this 2WW.

I have called my doctor and reported that I did not take the medication because it was a Friday and my small ass town doesn’t have a pharmacy that carries the medication.  It would only be available on Monday because they have to order it is.  Ella told me that she thinks I sound better, but I need to be careful because the symptoms can reappear.  I am to continue sucking back Gatorade… which I’m over, by the way.  I hate Gatorade now.

As far as symptom spotting goes, I’ve had a few sharp twinges near my tubes/uterus/ovaries (don’t ask me – I know nothing about my reproductive system and where things are situated).  I told myself it’s far too early for it to be an implantation cramp – and then I turned that frown upside down and decided it must be implantation!  It’s just early because there are two getting comfy.  I am also getting AF-like cramps, which is not unusual with progesterone.

Cody won’t let me do much, which I am LOVING.  I am a woman who was born to be doted on, I’m telling you.  He throws out the term “PUPO” constantly, and it’s adorable.  I can’t wait to tell him he’s going to be a daddy.  I can’t wait for him to feel our babies kick.  I can’t wait to watch him hold them for the first time.  He’s going to be amazing.  He already is.

Anyway. it’s time for work.

4 days down in the 2WW.  Many more to go.

I hope everyone is doing well!

  1. Oh the hate on I have for Gatorade after dealing with mild OHSS will never go away…. I don’t think I will ever drink it again. When those embies do implant beware of the renewed symptoms (for me it was 7dp3dt that it hit me). Hang in there!

  2. Bwahahaha! I am so excited for you. Your hubs sounds like he really wants this too. I wish my hubby would dote on me…..perhaps I need to find a reason for that to happen. Are the doctors testing you at 14 days or sooner?

  3. YES! OHSS is lame and I still to this day, can’t stand to even look at Gatorade (and it’s been since May 2012 since my Gatorade binge). What is worse is that I didn’t like Gatorade before I had OHSS so just imagine the gagging noises that came from me every time I had to chug it. I also drank a lot of V8 juice which I also HATED! ugh! I hope you get to feeling better soon and I can’t wait for the post where you show a bagillion and one pictures of the same pregnancy test showing a positive. I know that’s what I am going to do. I am going to post the stink in all different forms of light and angles just annoy a certain someone..cough, cough…Lily 🙂 xo
