A Bit of Relief

I don’t have OHSS. That’s a relief. The u/s this morning showed that I have a small amount of fluid in my belly, but the doctor said it’s so small he’s not concerned about it. He said my ovaries are shrinking back to their normal sizes, and that could be causing hte pain I’ve been feeling.

I got some relief in other ways, too. The doctor told me that bloating is normal at this stage. He also said my uterus looks great and, when he pressed down on my belly, he said it was nice and soft. I think this is the *only* time a woman is happy to be called soft. I’m hoping that means my lining is soft and easy for the embies to implant.

So, I’m feeling a little better, though I’m not as confident has I have been. I think I’m starting to become much more cautious. I really am not enjoying the bloating. According to the scale at the clinic, I’ve only gained 2-3 pounds since my last weigh-in at Weight Watchers (which was, what, like two months ago?); however, my “fat” pants are super snug on me, and they were super loose before when I was at this weight. It’s a little frustrating because I’m not eating a whole lot, and it makes me feel bad about myself.

But, if I get a positive test next Thursday, I’ll take the bloating. I just hope all this discomfort is worth it.

    I don’t know what OHSS is, but, I’m glad you don’t have it. I’m glad you have a soft uterus, that’s great! 🙂

    Glad you got a good report from the doctor! If it helps at all, with all three of my pregnancies, the early symptoms were very PMSy (oh the bloating!) — this last time especially (I had two negatives before I finally got my positive!). Hoping that this is the case for you!
