I threw up through my nose tonight. Extremely disgusting. When I promised the IVF coordinator that I would drink so much fluid that OHSS wouldn't be possible, she said she was worried that I would have problems with nausea and would dehydrate that way. This is the third night in a row that I've felt horribly sick to my stomach between 7 and 9 PM. It's like clockwork - does anyone know what could be causing this? Tonight's the first night I've actually thrown up, but I'm not convinced that it's related to the ER.

Even with the maximum dose of pain meds on board, I am not feeling so great. And I am not a fan of this side of 4 AM. But I really can't complain - I have a friend who has done ER twice without anesthesia. I think she's the strongest person I know.

So, I didn't think they had really given me my PIO shot today, but I'm feeling it now. If anyone has any advice for those suckers, I'm all ears!!!

Uh...sorry you are not feeling well! I didn't get sick after retrieval, but I did have a spell where I thought I might pass out (dizzy, hot, etc.) in the middle of the night. Never really got an answer on why that happened. Hope you feel better!!

Hope the pukiness stops soon! Nothing worse than the nose burn...
I have no idea why you're feeling so crap unless it is OHSS. I hope they'll scan you to check for it before transferring anything, if you're really not doing well.
I think they may have triggered me a day early to avoid OHSS. I only had 16 retrieved. Felt totally fine within 3 days of ER.
Give your clinic a call today and update them!

Congratulations on the awesome fert report. I'm sure you are on cloud nine right now.

In regards to your potential OHSS your RE can give you an IV with some meds to help with the symptoms. On one of my IVF's my E2 was 5,500 and I felt really bad also. I can't remember now what they gave me but just make them aware of the problem.

Good luck with the transfer.
