Weight Gain and Loss

I weighed myself on Thursday night before bed the day of my retrieval.  This was the first time I had weighed myself during this cycle so I'm not sure if I was up any weight at that point. 

Yesterday morning when I woke up I weighed myself again and was up 3 pounds. I went into the office because of this and they told me to take it easy. Last night before bed I weighed myself and was up 8 pounds from retrieval. Other than the weight gain I was feeling pretty much alright. 

The nurse at the clinic yesterday told me the fluid just needed to shift around and that eventually I would pee most of it out. Yesterday I didn't pee as much as I should have so that was starting to make me a bit nervous. 

Well, last night I was up about every 45 minutes to an hour peeing. I lost 4.5 pounds overnight and am feeling much better. Now, if that Colace would just kick in I might lose a few more pounds! IVF is so much fun. 


  1. Oatmeal... After a small bowl of oatmeal I felt SO much better.

  2. Apple Juice or Iced Decaf Coffee!!!
    I learned to live off of those during the wait for transfer...

    Oh or watermelon with a tiny bit of the white, rind, part still on. You can even sprinkle a little salt on it and that helps too!
    Cherries do also.

    I feel your pain, darlin'!!!
    But the end result of it all is totally worth it!!

  3. Glad to hear that your weight is coming down... was getting worried after reading your last post. Wonderful fertilisation report... FXd for you and your embies xoxo
