hi hope everyone is keeping well.<br>not sure where to start really.i had ec on the tues 11th nov didn't feel very good after so came home went to bed.still did'nt feel well on the wednesday but thought well i'm due to go back to clinic on the thursday for et so i'll leave it till then just put my feet up and drank water.on the thursday morning got up still feeling not quite right. went to clinic had a scan said i've got alot of fluid around so won't be able to do et,felt gutted but to tell the truth i was dreading it.told me to go home carry on spraying should settle down in two to three days go back on monday so came home back in bed drinking water.by the saturday i was sweating being sick and couldnt stand.phoned my gp said not sure what to due phone hospital which hubby did said to take me straght down there will be a bed waiting.so off we went to hospital where i stayed for 8 days on a drip full of fluid which went around my lungs and i found it difficult to breath also very painful. so here i am home having to wait till the new year to have fet feel so down because they say theres a better chance on your 2nd go which it was and using fresh eggs which they would of been and we really felt it was our turn we were so positive.i hope i have'nt scred anyone just needed to let it all out .did'nt know that ohss would hit me like it has i still don't feel right.just want christmas to come and go so we can get on with it again all the waiting makes me worse.well thats it for today . wish you all the very best of luck.<br>take care <br>cath xx

Hi, I'm so sorry this happened. It seems so unfair to be ready and waiting then hit by something from left-field. Did they give you an indication of why the it was so bad? The only good thing I can think of is that it isn't long to wait. It seems a shame to wish Christmas away though.<br><br>Good luck and fingers crossed for the new year. I'll be FETing then too so we might be cycle buddies. <br><br>love<br>Debra.

Kath you poor girl, what a horrible scary time for you - on top of the disappointment of not being able to go ahead of course. What this means is that you'll be monitored very closely on your next go and drug quantities adjusted to suit you.<br><br>You have your little frosties waiting for you after Christmas and they get good results, don't worry. Try to stay positive and look forward to the new year and most of all, take it easy.<br><br>Lots of love Jo. xxxxx
