Urgh! Just a bit of a whinge really. And a long one (you've been forewarned!).
My 2WW started off just fine, but by the end of day 5, in Friday, my tummy was puffed out and I was having terrible cramps - pretty much every area of my abdomen from the top to the bottom especially my stomach. It was so bad my husband wanted to go to ER (not helped by me melodramatically crying out at 4 am "I just can't go on any more ...!"). We called my clinic's emergency number instead. They weren't worried - said it is likely to be the progesterone suppositories inflaming already inflamed insides given I had so many (19) eggs collected, or mild late OHSS, or possibly pregnancy hormones which have caused this to flare up. Obviously I'm desperately hoping that is the last reason but trying to not get my hopes up. I've been told to self manage at home - usual advice of lots of water, protein and go to ER if I struggle to breathe etc. Oh and paracetamol which really isn't helping.
Anyway, feeling pretty sorry for myself. This is far more painful than after EC - it varies in severity but at its worst it hurts to do anything but lay flat on my back (although I have also been told I have to try to move around a bit). It is all a bit rubbish really - I have loads on at work this week but am in no fit state to leave the house let alone go to work. I will have to work from home - through the pain.
I just didn't know this could happen well after EC and ET - I thought I was over the worst! I'd never heard of people flaring up this late. If this is all because I have a little passenger inside that bloated belly then it is okay, but if it gets to OTD on Thursday and there is nothing and I have suffered through all this pain ...
The things we put ourselves through.
