Hi everyone! I’m new here but this seemed like the place to go for support.
I’ve had OHSS for the last week and a half. My ET was on 6/16 and at first I just thought the bloating was gas, but once it started to hurt to laugh, lie down flat and breathe I figured out that I was hyper-stimming and went to the doctor. He prescribed bed rest, gatorade and protein, saying that it’s all about staying comfortably uncomfortable. Of course this was right before a trip to the beach for a wedding that my DH was in, so I couldn’t go and my in-laws were out of town at the same wedding and my parents were out of town at a different one! What a time to be alone! My DH’s aunt ended up taking me to be drained, because I just couldn’t handle the pain while being home all by myself! Anyway, it came back full force within 36 hours so I went back to the dr and he said that I could get drained again, but he thought I’d be better off just letting my body ride it out and regulate on its own, (with the gatorade, protein and bed rest). He said he thinks I’m at the tail end of this mess, but I am doubtful after having read many posts about OHSS lasting for weeks and even the whole first trimester.
It’s killing my summer though and all the wonderful plans I had. :grr:
I just wanted to see if anyone else on here could relate or tell me your story for a little inspiration.
