New here! I'm a 40yr old mother of 3 nearly grown children(17,18 and 20). I had a tubal ligation(other than that road block, literally! I do not have any infertility issues) in 2003 after my last child was born. I'm currently at the end stages of my 1st IVF cycle for a hopefully 1st Child(his only) with my new partner(43). 15 eggs retrieved 7 successfully fertilized with some ICSI and some not. We are at day 3 and still holding strong at 7 embryos. We have opted for the genetic testing at day 5. Ok, now my issue. injections not so bad, side effects of injections just headaches, bloating and a little sluggish. Day 3 post retrieval still very bloated. My normally flat belly looks roughly 3-4 month pregnant. Still very uncomfortable, very FULL feeling. Even painful at times. I also have heartburn/acidic belly. I have a history of Migraine with aura. Yesterday was my first one triggered by the hormones. It was bad, really bad. Presented differently and scared the crap out of me. Apparently throwing me into a panic attack which I have no experience with. Luckily I work along side doctors and nurses all day and they calmed me down. So long story short. Does anyone else have a history of Migraines with aura while on IVF that has increased your symptoms substantially?
Thanks so much!
