Sorry to post again. As expected I have a very swollen/gassy tummy (about the size of an 8 month pregnant woman!) and have already been told I'm borderline OHSS before leaving the hospital after EC. This is my 2nd cycle so I know how a "normal" sore tummy feels like after EC...and this is an extreme version. I've gained weight since EC, pass urine very slowly and feel like I'm very full or need to pass wind but it's very hard to. I've tried massaging my tummy, pulling my knees up to my tummy when on my back and rotating them from side to side etc. I've tried peppermint tea which eased the feeling a bit and even tried eating raw ginger. I've been drinking so much water and eating protein rich meals (although smaller than normal) and haven't been to the loo for a no. 2 for 2 days and feel quite constipated. I'm also taking paracetamol when the "stabbing" pain in my lower abdomen gets too sore but am avoiding the codeine given to me as I know it causes constipation!! I'm going to try an electrolyte drink later and have acupuncture too but any tips on getting this pressure to reduce would be GRATEFULLY appreciated. I basically just need one great big fart!!! 😂😂.
I'm a bit worried the clinic might cancel my transfer if this persists so would really appreciate any help.
Thanks for reading 💕xxx
