Sexy half-nekkid photos! ...of my bloated stomach. YOU'RE WELCOME, GOOGLERS.

Quick interlude from trip photos for some inappropriate selfies!

I'm 10 weeks tomorrow, and the 10w bloat is in extreme full swing. I have only a few remaining pairs of pants left that are workable, and happily the investment in extra flowy tunic tops during stims / OHSS has had an extremely profitable (if repetitive.. sorry coworkers) payoff. But just for comparison, here's a picture of me the day before I had my first fluid aspiration back in early December. This was a full day before they took out 2L of fluid from my abdomen, and I felt too awful to even take a picture before the second aspiration. That's the picture on the right left . The picture on the right is from this morning, also showcasing some Xtreme Bloat, but... yeah. Not even in the same league.

Have I mentioned how ecstatic I am that I am past the OHSS!?! VERY VERY ECSTATIC. 

Edit: OMG, I apparently do not know my right from my left. Lordy. Pic on the LEFT is the OHSS one. Do I get to claim pregnancy brain yet? 


  1. Yay for now more OHSS! And yay for baby belly!! :)


  2. Wow, that's amazing. So glad the OHSS has resolved! Now: grow baby grow!

  3. That OHSS is crazy!! So glad it's resolved!

  4. That is nuts! So so glad it is gone!

  5. Yay for a little baby bloat. Man, that photo of the OHSS is NUTS!!!!

  6. This post made me so happy. I'm so glad you're feeling better. Love preggo pics too.
