Symptoms today?

Getting a lot of pings and pangs in my abdomen along with some lower back pain which is usually a good sign that things are growing in there.  Here’s hoping my follicles are getting bigger! 635dfde5424b86ee4e30e409abec7fb3Bloating is continuing and I finally gave in to wearing stretchy pants to work today.  Since, I’ve done that I have definitely felt more comfortable.  Last night, after dinner, Hubby and I went to Bed, Bath and Beyond and just walking around become more and more difficult and uncomfortable.  I have come to realize it is better not to do full meals either.  Today, I’ve been snacking which seemed to help but as time passes I can feel my tummy getting more and more full.   By far, my least favorite thing about IVF is this bloating. I am also consistently feeling a dull headache thanks to my Lupron so taking Acetaminophen to help.

Doctor/Lab appointments?

None today!

Any results?

Hubby’s screen came back all clear!

Next on the agenda?

Tomorrow morning is my next appointment!  They will check Estradiol and Progesterone and then do an ultrasound to count and measure follies!  I am anxiously awaiting these results to compare them to my last cycle!
