ER Visit

25 Apr

Today, I was rushed into the ER because I was having symptoms of OHSS. I started having more abdominal pain, shortness of breath and gained a few pounds. To be frankly honest with you guys, the shortness of breath is what really bothered me but I completely felt like it was an anxiety attack. But ofcourse, better safe than sorry. My nurse had sent me to the ER. When I got there I have them my symptoms…and after so many ultrasounds finally the doctor let me know that I had a few cysts that weren’t too big, and probably what caused the abdominal pain. I still feel weird when I breathe..and I hate that I’m having anxiety attacks right now right before the retrieval. I know that I can’t take any anxiety pills…but this feeling sucks so bad, and I’m not very sure that this is a healthy environment for a baby to grow. Is it just me or the meds? Has anyone had anxiety on the fertility meds? ESP IVF?

    Oh, Honey! I’m so sorry! I don’t have any assurances, but I do know that all we can do is take this journey a day at a time and remember that God will open doors for us to experience the fulfillment of the heart desires that He has created. The desire to be a mother. The desire to sacrifice ourselves (before and after) birth to love a little one. I was decently calm during the five-day wait, but I was as anxious as can be imagined after the transfer. I am hoping to remain more at peace next time. HUGS!

    How are you feeling today? Anxiety any better? Any update on transfer? I think it is scheduled for tomorrow morning…

      You’re right, thank you for the pep talk…sometimes I feel like we really need it…mostly at the end. Still having a little bit of anxiety…did eat something bad that was giving me bad stomach pain but I feel better now…it just seems like it won’t stop going bad. I don’t want a hostile environment. Transfer will be tomorrow at noon 🙂
      How are you doing sweetheart? Always thinking and praying for you xo

        Thank you sweetheart! 🙂 I’m doing good today. I got home from transfer about 2 hours ago. What a weird feeling for the first time to be the closest time to being pregnant!

        It feels so weird to hear you say it…and it brought tears to my eyes. I’m fighting back believing it.

        Even if no one else understands, I understand. You are a mommy.
