So my egg retrieval for IVF was last Monday they pulled 11 eggs 7 were mature 6 fertilized. They were doing amazing so we were scheduled for Sat for a day 5 transfer. The am comes we get there the tech says we need to scan your ovaries which is new to me bc I've done this twice before never a scan prior too. Ultrasound tells tech her ovaries are too big. Back to the pre op room the twit tech says right before slapping the extra small Bp cuff on me our transfer will likely be cancelled and embryos frozen! Than takes my Bp which was high...gee I wonder why? Dumb tech she knew I have anxiety issues. So I'm frantically crying my husband is dumbfounded. The Dr comes in and says yea I'm not going to transfer them with your ovaries that big bc you hAve OHSS and high Bp. I told him to transfer my embryos to my old Dr bc he would do it he said that's not wise than stopped addressing me & addressed my husband and told him we had to go straight to the ER to get treatment for the Bp. I was just so devastated I didn't stop crying for hours till they gave me a shot of Ativan & I slept the rest of the day. Ended up back there around midnight for pain my ovaries were the size of baseballs. So now I have to wait for them to shrink get a period before I can start Meds for a FET providing our embryos thaw ok. We had 2 grade a& b blasts. That were to be transferred after that there's 3 more their blasts but no clue what grade. This wouldn't be so worrisome if not for the fact were moving in the next month out of state. I'm being brought in today to see where my hormones are they may jump start my period. I don't get how supposedly the best Of the best in IVF can cause OHSS he should've coasted me. I just ache to be pg & give my daughter a sibling. It's just not fair going through all the infertility to have it dashed when you did everything you were told to do. I keep getting angry & sad it comes & goes. Of course I have great supportive friends than I have ignorant family who just say adopt. Um why don't you tell your children to adopt. Adoption isn't just for infertile people. Thanks for listening to my vent. It's also hard to lay around with my 5 yr old on spring break but a Drs orders.
