Now, I've read a lot of blogs and I think everyone has already done this one. If you haven't come and join in all the fun!
Meanwhile, I've been having trouble following my plan to relax and enjoy this pregnancy. I have been driving poor DH nuts with my questioning of every symptom. Mainly I don't like all the sensations that go on in the abdomen area. I know there is a lot going on in there, but please. I analyze all of it. There's no escaping it. It's a constant 24/7 thing. I am waaaaaaaaay to in tune with my body.
My biggest concern was that my right ovary has been tender since after retrieval and has been getting worse. The sensations come and go. Sometimes it is a sharp pain and other times a dull ache. I am trying not to worry about an ectopic pregnancy (I love to imagine myself in the worst case scenario. Healthy huh?). The pain is not any worse than when I ovulate, but I don't like it. I broke down and called Nurse Long Pause. She didn't skip a beat this time and sounded bored. She said the ovary was stimulated more than usual for retrieval. You initially feel better after ER and then if you get pregnant, you start to feel many of the same symptoms you felt during stimming because your estrogen is rising again (especially thanks to the estrace I take three times a day). That made sense to me but I asked her about an ectopic anyway and she said "Oh you'd know. We wouldn't be having a conversation like this." Hmmm. . . I guess I'll find out Monday.
(If you have something very scary to say on this topic, please refrain. I can't take the added stress. If however, you have had similar issues or words of encouragement, then comment away.)
I love DH. He has been so excited. He is a realist like myself, but he is trying to enjoy this happy time. I need to find a way to join him. I will get there.
I will, I will, I will. . .
