When I woke up yesterday morning I was really bloated. Not just kind of bloated, but really bloated. I was feeling light-headed, nauseous, dizzy, tired and weak. I spent most of the day on the couch even though this is the first day that I was technically off of bedrest after my transfer. By mid-afternoon I felt like I was going to pass out and my cheeks kept getting flushed. I called the clinic and they wanted me to come in for an OHSS check. I told them that I didn't feel that it was safe for me to drive and asked to wait until today to come in. Against their request to see me yesterday, I decided to wait until today to go in.
I woke up this morning feeling less nauseous and dizzy. I am still super bloated, as in I look like I am four months pregnant bloated, no joke. When the nurses saw me today they were shocked at how huge I am. After monitoring me and checking my hemoglobin today I found out that I do NOT have OHSS, thankfully! They do want to see me back in on Monday for another check. I am supposed to continue drinking gatorade, increase my protein intake and rest as much as I can. I feel exhausted (most likely from the progesterone) and I feel really foggy, like I can't really focus or concentrate. I still feel light-headed and like I can't function normally. My belly does not hurt, it's just really, really bloated.
The best part of all...I want to feel like shit, for at least the next 12 weeks. Not super shitty, but just enough so that I am constantly reminded that I am pregnant. :)
