Okay, last night I had a total breakdown. All the stress of this IVF thing is getting to me. I am irrationally terrified of getting OHSS. Because I had a mild case last time and because my levels are higher this time, I am just really worried about it. We're talking waking up with panic attacks worried. Sobbing uncontrollably worried. I feel like I'm going crazy! I know the hormones have me out of whack, but this is ridiculous. I know that I need to relax and go with it, but I'm struggling. Of course I am going ahead with the trigger tonight, but I wish I could be confident in the fact that everything will be alright. I know it will be. AHHHHHH!

I dont know anything about the process you are going through so I am reading each post with great hope for you! I am sure everything will be just fine!

And breath.....your freaking me out. I so hope you don't have OHSS.
Just eat ALOT of protein and stick your nose in a really good book. It seemed to help me.

Good luck with your trigger!

It will be OK! Yes, that would suck to get OHSS, but remember, your focus is a BABY- not worse-case scenarios. I TOTALLY understand though- when I'm on the meds, the very thought of it not working, or getting OHSS sends me into a crying frenzy. Try not to get stressed out though. Be confident that this will work and you will have no problems. Trigger tonight- YAY!!!!! (oh, by the way, I'll post again later to answer your questions from yesterday!)
