Halleluja, I can wear jeans!!!

I feel a ton better today! I actually put on jeans and they fit - woo hoo!

My ovarian hyperstimluation has been very uncomfortable. I have gained anywhere from 10 - 12 pounds a day (it goes away after a night of sleep). I had a terrible pain in my left shoulder the other night, and swear I thought I was having a heart attack it hurt so bad.
But, today I feel better. I am a little bloated, but I can tell I am getting better. My weight is down a bit and I just don't feel the pain I did earlier this week.

Thank goodness my parents were here earlier this week. They made me sit and drink lots of fluids, and let's be honest...I wouldn't have done that as well if it were just me. I needed the pushing. I am happy to be on the mend and hope I never feel that sort of pain/uncomfortableness again. On a side note, I think the reason this might be going away is that I am about to start my cycle, which I will take over the pain of this last week. Never thought I would be so happy to have my little friend visit!

Also, I am feeling really optimistic about this frozen embryo transfer. I know this sounds odd, but it is kind of nice to have a little break from it all for the holidays and then start again in January. It feels like a fresh start.

I will write more this week. I have a feeling I will be starting in on the series in a few days, so I will keep you all posted!

We must be close to the same cycle, because my "little friend" is supposed to visit soon too! I'm glad you're feeling better. It sounds like a miserable experience. Since you didn't have to go to the hospital to be drained I hope you'll be able to do the January cycle. Yay! :)

I'm hopeful that we'll do January. But if we get bumped to February, I won't be too bummed because then at least I'll have a friend in the waiting room :-)
