Hi, this is my first time posting...I don't know why I haven't before, I guess I thought I could go it alone, but I'm feeling really down, and wondered if anyone out there is going through the same.
I had my first IVF cycle ET on 12/8, but they found I had mild-moderate OHSS, for which I needed Cabergoline. Between that, and the progesterone pessaries I became really (VERY) bloated, and constipated. Just when I thought it was easing off, and actually managed to go back to work (Thursday) I started with a wave of really bad AF type pains, and backache - so much so that it wakes me up in the night. Constipation and ovary pain still there too - no let up!
Since AF still hasn't actually arrived, and no spotting, I'm trying to convince myself I'm still in the running, but I think I know in my heart of hearts it's not worked. I know it sounds crazy, but in some ways I just want it to be over so I can get back to normal, and focus on the next attempt.
Has anyone out there experienced this, at this stage and had a positive outcome???
I'm thinking of testing tomorrow morning, although still probably too early...
Clutching at straws!
