I am feeling so bloated and "gassy"...my ovaries kinda hurt today...it started out pretty good and as the day progressed...I started to feel "bigger"...my waist used to be a 28 and now its a 33! The embryologist said my embies are looking real good and my transfer is scheduled for tomorrow but the docs might want to hold off as I am at a slight risk for OHSS...I am still peeing, don't have nausea or vomitting...but it sure feels good to burp or "let one go"....lol :blush: is this normal? Do you think I am in the early stage of OHSS or is this "normal"? I so badly want to be able to have the "greenlight" to go ahead with the transfer tomorrow...

please...any input would be soooooo nice. :pray:

:dontknow: Kelly, I never did measure my waist but I did weigh myself. I never did gain weight but my abdomen did get significantly larger. Call the docs if you're worried, don't let this go!!! You're peeing, that's good. How's your breathing? I was very short of breath, that's what worried them but all the other signs were ok. Chin up! Call them, they understand your worry :) .

Hey Kelly,

I was reading another post and saw a reply by you... and I saw the little picture under your name and thought 'what IS that?'. For sec I thought it was a picture of 2 flowers then I realized what they were and I freaked out! :banana: :banana: , YOU DID IT!!!! Yes, now you are officially a 2ww'er, CONGRATS! I asked for a pic of mine but they weren't 'that advanced' yet :( , dammit, I wanted a picture, too. Yours do look perfect, are those 8 cells, was I counting right?

Hope you're resting now and putting your feet up, relax and give your belly a rub and a "good luck" from me :P .

Take care,
Shawn

Hi Kelly

Good luck on your 2ww!! It is both exciting and scary isn't it? Why do you have to wait until the 21st for your Beta....that's longer than 2ww's isn't it???

Good luck!
Mary
