I had a bit of scare today...Day #9

I had a bit of scare today...

So my period this past time was way lighter than usual. I mentioned this at least twice at the doctors and no one seemed to think much about it, just said that they would know if there was a problem via my b/w.

Fastforward to last night and today. I started getting really bad menstrual-like cramps (which I initially just wrote off to being later in the stims game). I did a light work-out this morning and came home from the gym to find tons of bleeding. I was quite worried, to say the least. Thankfully I was going in today anyways for b/w and u/s. But the whole ride there I was praying but knowing that this cycle was going to be canceled.

When I first told Dr. D, he looked worried and said that would be very unusual. Well, to much relief, after the u/s, he said everything looks fine. He thinks it might be old blood from the last cycle but said to let him know if it is regular period red in color as that would be a problem (right now it isn't but I'll spare you the details). I go back again tomorrow for another round of monitoring, day #10.

As far as my check-up, he said he thinks he can get 5 good eggs at this point, which would be terrific (I have diminished ovarian reserve so I'm not expected to produce many eggs). My lining looks good and, if all continues to go well, retrieval will likely be Monday or Tuesday. Now I'm just waiting to hear back on my b/w and just hoping that they didn't see a problem!

This is all so stressful! Think positive! Think positive!


  1. Yes, think positive! I will too.

    Does your doc know you are still working out? Granted, every doc has different opinions, but my doc would not let me work out at all from about stim day 5 until after the beta. They were concerned about twisting stimulated ovaries/tubes as well as just all that extra fluid.

    How are you feeling otherwise? Have any bloat yet? How's your tummy holding up? Not too bruised I hope!

    Hang in there!!

  2. Sorry to hear about your scare. I will be praying for you and sending warm wishes your way!

  3. Ok that is totally freaky. I was always so afraid of that happening.

  4. How scary!

    I'll be thinking positive (and also keeping my fingers crossed for more than 5 little eggies, I know that hope!).
