OHSS Woes

Today is 7pd3dt and what a day it's been. The past few days I have been dealing with OHSS and overall, while it hasn't been great fun it also hasn't been too bad. That however has changed and the OHSS suck factor today has been pretty high!

Last night I noticed some shortness of breath and chest pain...nothing major but definitely there. I woke up this morning and it was sill there so I called my clinic. The trouble is, our clinic is in Toronto and we are in Ottawa so it's impossible to just pop into the clinic to see my RE when something comes up. So as instructed I was off to the hospital...ugh!

Long story short for the moment as I am tired and falling asleep while writing this. I might very well have a blood clot in my lung. This could be and likely is a complication of the fertility medications and the OHSS combined. They ran a few tests today and started me on blood thinner injections. I need to meet the thrombosis team in the morning and we'll go from there. I am so very, very thankful to be sleeping in my own bed tonight. They also did a beta. I was nervous...today is only day 7 past my 3 day transfer. Turns out that I do have measurable HCG in my blood and yes the number is low but it's there. Feeling hopeful.

Sleep now. Hospital tomorrow.

  1. Well, that's a little disconcerting. I hope things go well for you tomorrow. On the plus side, you've got a positive beta right now. A mixed bag of emotions today!
