I gained around 14lbs during my IVF cycle and it has yet to go away and I look about 5-6 months pregnant and am only 13 weeks. I think if the cycle does not work for you, you should lose it fairly quickly as they say it is just bloating and your ovaries are swollen. If you get pregnant (which is what we need to hope for) you will have to deal with it. But if you continue on your current exercise regiment and eat a balanced diet for you and the baby, you should be fine. Although I am getting bigger, my weight is staying the same. That leads me to believe that as the bloat goes away, I am gaining the proper amount of weight that I need to for a healthy pregnancy.
I have to remind myself everyday that it is all worth it and to just be happy that I bypassed the “is she fat or is she pregnant stage”. I popped right around 9 weeks and there is no denying I am pregnant and not just a donut hog.
Good luck to you…keep your head up and just work towards a healthy stim cycle and a happy and healthy 9 months!!
