I didn't get to transfer on my most recent IVF as I developed OHSS and I'm afraid your symptoms sound like mine: I was very bloated and it happened gradually, and I was still passing urine as normal. I did have severe stomach pains for a few hours one morning too. keep drinking tons of water and you should seek medical advice really for the breathlessness, as that could indicate fluid up near your chest cavity. I found A&E to be wonderful when I was suffering, they referred me to the EPU and took it very seriously. Please look after yourself.
Shoegal30 congratulations on your pregnancy, brilliant news! Unfortunately bloating seems to be one of the most common side effects of treatment. My first cycle failed, but I gained just under a stone in weight and had the same kind of horrendous bloating making me look at least 3-4 months pregnant, which was most uncomfortable. It only started to fall away when I stopped the cyclogest, but nearly two weeks later, the 'bloat' keeps returning and over the weekend I haven't been able to fit into my jeans again.
I am not pregnant, however, and in your situation, particularly with the shortness of breath, I'd be seeking fairly swift medical advice.
It sounds like OHSS, yes. I had the same thing and unfortunately it does tend to get worse when you get pregnant. Mine went away about 11 weeks which is when the placenta takes over hormone production - just in time for the real baby bump! Make sure you go to the doctor if it gets any worse, drink plenty of fluids and invest in comfy clothes!
Thanks all I will call the clinic today and see what they say. I should have mentioned that I do have asthma anyway so they did say that this would be affected. I just don't know what else they can do except stop my progesterone which I don't want to do?
I did pop into my docs the other day and they aren't too familiar with OHSS and the symptoms so told me to liaise with the clinic too.
