After IVF

Postby KTMay » Thu Nov 02, 2017 12:53 pm

Hey Ladies!
So I had my IVF transfer on 10-16-17....It's now 11-2-17 and my stomach is extremely swollen.
We did get a BFP (WOOHOO!!!!) but I know it is extremely too early to be showing.
I have called my RE and she said it's normal but I'm not so sure anymore.
I have been having issues breathing, like I can't get a deep breath, and I am extremely uncomfortable!
Normally, I would believe the doctor and go with the flow, but it seems like it is swelling more and it's higher up now than it was, and of course it's worse after I eat....anything (big, small, heavy, or light), I bloat more.
Have any of you ladies had this before, or anything similar?
ANY help is greatly appreciated!
Thanks Ladies!!!!

Was ur transfer after the egg retrieval?it sounds like you might have OHSS wich can be dangerous and ur doctor shouldn’t be ignoring these symptoms.
