You have got to be kidding????

OK, I know 2 posts in one day, but I just got the strangest call from my RE. She asked how I was feeling, and I told her bloated, and having some pretty strong pelvic pressure. Then she tells me that the other blood work that they pulled today indicated that I had OHSS... huh??? WTF??? She said that I may have actually had OHSS, but because it wasn't as bad as the first time, I didn't even notice, but now that HCG is running rampant in my system then it is showing up.... YOU HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME???!!! So she told me to get on the scale, and sure enough since Tuesday I have gained almost 10 pounds... You know I asked the Fellow when I was at the clinic this morning if you could get OHSS after the fact, and he said no... guess he missed that class..... So now I have to go Monday so they can check my hemitacrit, to make sure all is well.

Just call me Mrs. Murphy!!!!

Congrats on an outstanding beta! but sorry to hear about the OHSS. Hopefully that resolves quickly enough.

Great news! I'm so glad the beta confirmed your suspicions!

My understanding with OHSS is that there is primary OHSS, caused by the HCG shot, and then secondary OHSS, caused by getting pregnant and rising HCGs. So now that your HCGs are going up, I guess you're getting some symptoms. I really hope it won't be too bad!

Congrats!! What is OHSS? I hope all goes well with the two. Yeah, instant family to add to the furbabies. :)
