This is the first cycle where I have actually felt symptoms. I feel tight in the ovaries- full and bloated. And my boobs are super sore. That started when my estrogen went through the roof on Saturday.
I'm hopeful that these are signs (lots of follies, high estrogen, high HCG after trigger) that this IVF is working better than the others?
Nothing to eat or drink after midnight tonight. Last meal was an artichoke and left over Chicken Korma from Azitra in Raleigh. Happily full and only a little nervous.
At my old clinic- UMich- they didn't put you fully out, and you were mildly aware of the whole procedure. At NCCRM, I didn't remember anything. I never saw the doctor and afterwards, I just felt really uncomfortable that I didn't know what happened. Did Dr. Toma really do the egg retrieval? Who knows. I didn't see him. I also got a really weird nasal reaction to the sedation. I told Dr. Toma at my WTF appointment and he said that I should just tell the anesthesiologist not to put me fully out. Then I got the opposite fear that I wouldn't like to know what is going on- maybe I will freak out or feel dizzy. Anyway. My gut is just telling me to let them do what they are used to doing because if I ask for something different- that they are not used to- it might lead to mistakes.
Also developed a really sweet eye-lid twitch in my right eye. Stress induced? Hope it goes away with the retrieval.
OK WISH ME LUCK!
