Staying calm...

No new information today. I just wanted to say thank you to everyone for your supportive comments since yesterday. I am doing my best to stay calm and not worry about my possible infection. Of course, I am over-analyzing every little twinge and sensation in my abdomen, but they certainly seem to be focused on my ovary areas, rather than my v-jay-jay... and that's normal when your ovaries are swollen to a completely abnormal size, right ?!  I was also very bloated yesterday evening which had me worried for a while, until I realised it was actually gas - much to the displeasure of my bloke as I 'relieved it' ;)

Anyway, I woke up this morning feeling anxious for the first time this cycle, so lay there and asked myself, 'What would I like to do today?' as recommended by Princess Wahna Bea Mama. I realised that I just wanted to stay home by myself, watch some TV and get some sun on our balcony. I have turned down offers to see a good friend, because I don't want to discuss our cycle today (she is the only person IRL who is following along with our news day by day)... I don't want to voice my concerns about this infection any more. I just want to relax and think positive thoughts :)


  1. hahahahah!! I have had the same scenario! Gas, is very confusing. My husband is scared of me! hahah

    Yes..I guess I was looking for some sort of answer or help for my fainting, and well..I guess I found one in your comment..:)

  2. Sorry I wasn't able to comment yesterday...I think you're doing the right thing just taking time to relax and not getting too worked up over the infection thing. My guess is that Miss Chinese U/S technician noticed that your western vajayjay smells different from eastern vajayjays (due to your slightly different diet - I lived in Korea and our sweat smelled more sour because of the dairy we consumed). I think she mistakenly thought this meant a possible infection. When do you see your doc next? Sorry you have to wait to find out everything is fine!! Thinkingof you and your growing follies!

  3. Thanks for stopping by my blog! I hope you get good news from your doc on Tuesday....and that there is no infection! Happy ICLW....I am following you now!

  4. Staying calm is certainly the best thing to do... but the hardest possible thing during IVF :( Great that you could have a quiet day at home... look after yourself and FXd for tomorrow xoxo

  5. I hope everything goes well today and that there is no problem. I'm not sure whether I'll be able to check my email later but I'm thinking of you today.

  6. Yeah! I'm so glad you had a "you" day. You are one of the most "zen" people I know...way less Type A than most of us. I am still catching up on your posts, but I am betting the other doctor was making a mountain out of a mole hill. I have good feelings for you about this cycle.
