This morning I woke up and after realizing that I had to use the restroom 4 times between 9:30 last night and 8:00 this morning I decided to POAS. I got out the one lonely HPT that I had in my house and proceed to POAS. As it is blinking, my hopes remained low as it is a digital test and even I were pregnant I would expect that my HcG levels would be lower than 50, which the test is made to detect at.
As I am waiting for the result I decide to pick-up a few things around the house and get some laundry started. When I walked back in to the bathroom I looked at the HPT box as the test was blinking away. All I could do was laugh, hysterically. Stupid me used an Ovulation predictor kit test!! It wasn't a HPT at all. Apparently today I am not supposed to know if I am pregnant or not:)
I am still super bloated and am now officially calling my stomach a "science experiment". When I woke up yesterday I told DH, "I think it is getting smaller." He looked at it and said, "Hmm, do you think so?" Apparently it's not. I go in tomorrow for another OHSS check, but don't suspect that I have it. My belly is really bloated, but it doesn't hurt and I have no other OHSS symptoms at all. Not quite sure why I am so bloated. Anyone have any thoughts?? I think today I look like I am about 5 months pregnant, really, and this is not an exaggeration. When I saw my dad on Friday and he looked at my stomach I think his eyes just about bugged out of his head.
My current medications:
Estrace orally 2X/day
Endometrin suppositories 3X/day
PIO IM injection 1X/ day
Heparin sub-q injection 2X/day
I also wanted to thank two IF friends, N and K, who called me this week to check on me. We all go to the same clinic and are all actively cycling right now. Thank you also to C, who is done cycling at my clinic, who met me this week to do a "drug swap". Okay, well there weren't really any drugs involved but she gave me a bunch of her PIO needles which the pharmacy wanted to charge me $55 for. Thanks also to my dear friend, S, who always stalks me at just the right moment and who allows me to stalk her too, LOL!:) And, as always, thanks to DH and my family for giving us just enough support to know that we are loved.
Now that this sounds like an acceptance speech for an Academy Award, I am going to end this blog post!
