One word.............

I am feeling bloated and uncomfortable.  I'm sure it will just get worse.  I keep thinking is this what it's going to be like if when I'm pregnant?  Not that I'm complaining, as I'll cherish every pregnancy symptom if when it happens.

I'm praying that my existing 9 follicles continue to grow nicely, and more follicles have grown into measurable size.  We'll find out more at tomorrow's appointmen if I'll trigger tomorrow or Monday.  (Not so) Bright and early at 7 am (technically 6 am if not considering the Daylight Savings change in time).


  1. Well thats a good sign if you bloated and uncomfy, sounds like you have some nice size follies happening. Good luck for trigger.

  2. Hurray for 9 follicles, bloating and all! I hope to be half as lucky this cycle!
    Happy Triggering!

  3. Heyas....was reading you profile, and timeline wise we seem to have been sharing a similar history.

    Unexplained IF, 2004, 4 IUIs and 1 IVF....sounds familiar really.

    I am glad that you are into IVF#2. 9 follicles is a good number. All the best for the retrieval and fertilization.

    I hope that all this discomfort is leading you to your rainbow.

  4. Yaay for trigger time!! Sorry you are bloated sweetie.. hang in there and if you still feel bloated after ER I would start drinking protein rich drinks. I had a mild case of OHSS with my second cycle but after drinking Gatorade and Milk until ET day the pain and discomfort were more bearable! Cannot wait for your ER!!

  5. Sending you love and hugs and spurring those follies on to great success! I'm so hopeful for you :) Keep us posted.


  6. goodluck!!! i was soo bloated that i looked 4 months preggers before trigger and 5 months preggers after retrieval bc of the overstimulation. just wear loose, flowy tops!!!

  7. Sending prayers and hopes that today went well, and that the bloating will ease for you!
