Out for the Night

Well, I didn't do too well last night. I started feeling light-headed and woozy around 630pm. I ate some salty nuts, attempted to eat thai child rice( and immediately put it far away from where I was sitting) I had this weird feeling that I was going to either throw up of pass out. Turns out, I did both!

Poor Mr. S had to watch me suddenly lose consciousness and start making odd noises. I came to hearing the panic in his voice, saying my name. I had been in this weird dream state, and woke up so confused. He said it was about 10-15 seconds, but scared the hell out of him.

I slowly climbed the stairs, with him right behind me, and promptly lost all food from my stomach(luckily made it to the bathroom). I hate throwing up, but in a way, it was a relief.

He called the on-call Dr. She called back, and said my body probably needed to raise my blood-pressure, and that vomiting does that. Ugh. But, I slept for 10 hours, and woke up feeling much better.

What an ordeal! For those of you going through IVF, etc, I think this is a very rare reaction, so don't get worried! It may have been the antibiotic, the painkiller, or some combo that effected me so badly.

We are both glad to have the day off, would've taken it anyway, if we didn't. I am supposed to stay calm and quiet and drink a lot of water and eat salty things.

Waiting hopefully on Fert. Report.

All your well-wished are so wonderful. Thank you so much for sending us positive energy!


  1. i'm so happy you got 11 eggs, congrats!

    that's really interesting about the body raising your blood pressure. i'm glad mr. s was right there with you, you slept well and are feeling better.

  2. You poor thing, it sounds like you had a rough evening, so glad you are feeling better. Sports drinks like gator.ade (if you can tolerate the taste) have lots of sodium and other minerals plus hydration. Sending my best thoughts for Super Duper Fertilization!

  3. Oh no! YUCK! You poor thing. It must have been very scary!

  4. Good lord! That's crazy. Hope that all's well now.
