Hi Tracy

Welcome back and congratulations on your BFP!! :D :D
My ovaries were still swollen until after my 1st pregnancy scan at 6.5 weeks pregnant. There is a possibility if your symptoms get worse, you could be developing OHSS (Ovarian hyperstimulation). You can develop it after IVF treatment anyway if you have a lot of follicles, but you are more prone to it if you become pregnant after treatment. From what Ive read, it wont affect your baby (In fact one book I read said that the pregnancy would be more likely to 'stick' if you had OHSS, although I dont really know the reasons why!) However, it can be serious for you if it gets worse and is left untreated, so look after yourself and contact your doctor if your symptoms get worse. From what Ive read on here, you are advised to drink plenty of fluids. If you post this topic on the general forum or pregnancy after treatment forum, you should get a few replies as a few women has been through it.
(Oh and some good news, you are probably further on in your pregnancy than you think. You normally count back 2 weeks from your EC or ET, so are probably 4.5 weeks pregnant! Try the pregnancy calculator on the left hand side of your screen (In blue under resources).
Take care
