Feb/Mar 2012 Cycle Buddies

Hi all - it's been a long time since I've posted - almost a year ago. I posted to the Feb/Mar 2011 Cycles Buddies thread a bit last year. It has been nice to go back through those threads and really remember how I was feeling emotionally and physically. I've really blocked out quite a lot. I started...

Re: FEB / MARCH 2011 Cycle Buddies!! can't wait!

Timber5k- Congrats on your amazing Beta and pregnancy! I had a feeling you were a runner. I am more of a distance girl but I will run an occasional 5k for fun. Actually I run all of them that come our way but am more competitive in longer runs, I stink at the 5k, my best time is right at an 8 minut...

Re: FEB / MARCH 2011 Cycle Buddies!! can't wait!

Hi all, My pregnancy has been mixed with so much negative and stressful stuff that it's been a tough month for me. My last beta (I think 19dpt) was 2002. I went in for a transvaginal ultrasound and finally saw the pregnancy on the screen and even a little flicker for the heartbeat. I cried. Other th...

Re: FEB / MARCH 2011 Cycle Buddies!! can't wait!

Hey Timber5k- great to hear from you but I wish you were reporting that you were back at 100%. Funny- I was jut thinking about the "to tell or not to tell" question. We have been so open about our procedures that most of our family knows and so do some of our friends and colleagues. I felt like it ...

Re: FEB / MARCH 2011 Cycle Buddies!! can't wait!

Well, I had 24 hours of bliss after my 2nd draining. Unfortunately, the fluid has come back. Saw my RE this morning and he said it seems like the fluid accumulation has at least slowed down, but it's possible I'll have to go for another draining. He told me the draining record for one person in his ...

Re: FEB / MARCH 2011 Cycle Buddies!! can't wait!

Hey all - had my 2nd draining today and they drained another 3 liters. That's 6 liters of fluid in 5 days. I feel so great today! I'm going to enjoy this feeling while it lasts. I was supposed to rest today, but I just had to stay out of the house, so I did a little shopping with my mom and it was g...

Re: Ovarian Hyperstimulation Syndrome (OHSS)

Margi - Wow! I really wish I would have read your story before I did my ER and ET. Hopefully, other women will read these posts and get a better understanding about OHSS. My RE never discussed it with me until I presented with symptoms. The only reason I knew anything about it was because I read in ...

Re: Beautiful Babies Due in 2011 (Combined Group)

Leora - I'm hoping for 11/11, too! Ha ha! My birthday is also on 11/3, so that would be neat. My beta #2 was 192. I'm thinking that's good because that was really supposed to be my first beta. But because I got OHSS, they did the first beta early. Congrats on your beta, too! Can someone explain what...

Re: Beautiful Babies Due in 2011 (Combined Group)

Leora - Hey Due Date Buddy! Yes, my date is November 8 according to the calculators. I'm waiting by the phone now waiting for my 2nd beta results. Looking forward to hearing yours. The fluid is back and I'll probably have to be drained again before the weekend. I'm not allowed to go to work and I'm ...

Re: Ovarian Hyperstimulation Syndrome (OHSS)

Hi Erin - Wow, it definitely sounds like you have OHSS. I'm surprised you only had a little bit of fluid. Unfortunately, I started getting shortness of breath again last night and couldn't lie down when I went to bed. Had to sleep propped up on the couch again. Went to the doc this morning, and sure...

Re: FEB / MARCH 2011 Cycle Buddies!! can't wait!

Hi everyone, Unfortunately, my situation has not improved. I am still in alot of pain and barely able to walk. I weighed myself today, and somewhere between Wednesday (ER Day) and today, I have gained 9 pounds. Now I am really concerned. Has anyone here had fluid aspirated from their abdominal cavi...

Re: IVF cost & how is everyone affording this

I'm from the U.S. I just did my first IVF cycle and it wasn't covered by insurance. I paid $2,300 for meds and $10,000 for two IVF cycles, if needed. As I type that, I can't believe I actually paid that much. IVF does seem ridiculously expensive. Fortunately, my hpt was a BFP and my first Beta was a...

Ovarian Hyperstimulation Syndrome (OHSS)

I haven't seen too many posts on this directly, so I wanted to start one since I'm experiencing OHSS now. I thought other people could share their experiences as well, and any tips. I really wasn't warned about OHSS and it is not fun at all. Here has been my experience so far: I took my hcG shot on ...
