I May Not Be Pregnant, But I Look It ... ha, ha

The first couple of days of living after the cancellation was excruciating. Sucker punch to the stomach, sucker. Breathless and gasping for two days. I wondered whether the abysmal pain would ever end. How long will this feeling linger? And didnt i just suffer through two weeks of a drug induced depression just the other day. Man, not this again. Again. Again. Again.

To dig the abysmal hole deeper, apparently, i was also suffering from a case of ovarian hyperstimuation syndrome. Oh, you know, bloating, distended stomach, breathlessness. I looked like a 6 month pregnant woman...ironic, huh? Probably as close to as pregnancy as i'll ever get.

The doctor's office, supposedly, called and left a message for me to come in the next day after the cancellation because they had a concern for ohss too. Unfortunately, i did not get the message and assumed that all the bloat was normal. Funny, huh?

By the time they called to follow up, i wasnt so bloated anymore and i figured i didnt need to go in anymore. I'm feeling better. I'm still a little bloated, but a mild case of ohss is treated with rest and more rest.

So, that's where we're at. Exciting case of ohss.

I'm glad your sense of humour is still serving you in dire times like this.
What an awful thing to go through, twice.

OHSS. Talk about insult to injury. Hope you're feeling better.

Oh, crap. I'm so sorry about the cancellation and the OHSS on top of it. You're in my thoughts.

When it rains, it pours, eh? I'm so sorry and hope you are feeling a little less distended.

Sorry this has all been so crap. Bloat is always a most pleasant side-effect. Hope you're feeling better soon.
