hi I’m new to this website. I just went through my first cycle of IVF this November was overjoyed to discover a BFP! however, now I’m suffering from horrible OHSS and I’m miserable everyday. My abdomen is so distended and painful; i can barely walk upright. can’t find any comfortable positions to sleep in. I’m unable to go to work frequently. I’m so stressed out because I didn’t know OHSS could be this disabling. I don’t know what affect this is having on the pregnancy and I’m constantly worried if the baby is ok. I feel sad and guilty that the OHSS symptoms are preventing me from enjoying the pregnancy. I’m eating as much protein as I can and drinking Smartwater. Not short of breath so my doc won’t drain me. I’ve read this can last 8-10 weeks! any encouraging words or similar experiences would be so helpful to me right now.
thanks everyone for listening
