Weight gain during IVF

Post by sportsmom » Tue May 05, 2009 5:05 pm

Did anyone else gain significant weight during the down reg, and stim period? I gain close to 10 pds :shock: . I'm 5'1 and a petite person so the 10 pds is pretty obvious. I went to the restroom and my zipper broke! And I'm at work. :oops:

sportsmom-I gained 12 lbs during just my stim period-Normally 135-by the time I got my BFP-147-at delivery a whopping 192-It is ALL so worth it though-the only problem I could tell is that I looked pregnant before I was because of the weight gain-so those that didn't know about my IVF just thought I was hiding my pregnancy at first- Good Luck-the weight does end up coming off!!

jennywit I'm hoping to gain alot more with a BFP!!! :lol: But I'm haven't gotten it yet and people are asking if I'm pregnant and giving me the side glances. :roll: The weight gain will be so worth it but I was surprised to have gained that before the transfer.
