Caorlyn- I'm sooooo sorry
Its so hard to go through all the tmt steps - I feel for you and how dissapointed you must feel. Your DH sounds loving and I think you will support each other to move on to your plan b- once the clinic knows how your body responds they'll give you the best possible tmt . I think it was a great idea to go out to the fundraiser. You can stay on as long as you want, you're a compassionate person and you've given all of us so much support remember that we are here for you. God bless & don't lose hope.
tklmoser- I'm so sorry

Hi to all- hope you're all doing well!
I have been away from the board cuz I was in the Hospital since Saturday night. On saturday morning I almost fainted, then was dizzy continuously and had a sharp chest pain and shortness of breath all day long. When I called the pharmacist he said I could have a blood clot in my lungs - so we rushed to the hospital- by then it was after supper. When we got there they said it was FATAL!!!
My DH was so nervous- I kept thinking- oh no! Not now. They kept me overnight as the CT scan machine was not accessible until the next morning.The put me on heparin (blood thinner) to prevent further clotting. My DH was so anxious(but trying to hold it in-but I know him well) I kept telling him I would be fine. All we kept thinking of was the 2 embies in my belly. I tried to keep calm. Not easy...
Well, the next afternoon the CT scan confirmed it was not a blood clot, but mild OHSS with fluid that went in my right lung explaining all the symptoms- but this is extremely rare(My DH said he knew I was special- haha!). Then 2 days later I developed a terrible burning face rash and they thought I might be allergic to the progesterone injection- and they almost refused to give it to me on tuesday night. I was fuming-
I was ready to fight to keep that injection- afterall this I wasn't willing to ljeopardize my chances for my babies. My DH convinced the resident DR. so he said they would do more blood testing(for autoimmune disease and Lupus)- so I have to go to get tested for allergies next wed
and I am waiting for the other blood test results. I told them I was convince it was the soap they use for laundry. I only used their facecloths on my face & cuz I have sensitive skin I sometimes get irritations from make-up products(on my cheeks) I just never had it this bad- all over my face includind my forehead and neck. So they kept me until yesterday, gave me coritsone cream and I told them I would continue the progesterone injections unless I felt really ill then I would take the progesterone suppositories.
Today, I'm feeling much better
(my skin has cleared up but it is very dry and flaky-yuk- They delivered an oxygen tank at my house last night and I have been using it on and off when I can't catch my breath from walking back from the bathroom- and believe me I don't walk very fast to start with and it feels like 20 mins. on a threadmill!!My poor DH has been worried and nervous all week and each night when he came to the hospital after work he looked exhausted- I feel so bad and hoping I'm going to get better soon. I tell him I'll be running a marathon by next week as a joke. We like to joke around when they other is down.
Luckily I'm home and waiting for the test date on May 17th- I did take out the HPT yesterday but when my DH saw me it convinced me to wait some more. So I decided to continue talking to my babies and visualizing them growing in my belly. It's my way of coping and having some kind of control over this situation.
I kept thinking about you guys wondering how you were doing. I couldn't wait to get back here. I feel comfort being in contact with you all.
