I went back to the doctor yesterday.  They did an u/s and although there is still fluid in my abdomen, it is significantly less than before.  My ovaries are much smaller as well.  I'm still not completely clear but it's a good sign the OHSS is on the way out.

While she was measuring my ovaries and checking for the fluid I thought she might as well have a look around to see what she could see.  She didn't want to do it since it's still so early but I think they all feel a bit sorry for me so she obliged.  She definitely found one sac!  She said the fluid creates a glare on the picture which makes things very hard to see but she definitely found one.  We should be able to see more next week.

The swelling and seeping situation was better for a few hours yesterday morning but it all returned by the afternoon.  Even though it's super annoying, it's much better than dealing with the pain of OHSS.  There's always a silver lining, right?

I had my last beta and progesterone check yesterday and the numbers look great.  My progesterone levels are pretty high so there's a possibility I might be able to stop the PIO shots after I see my doctor on Monday (finally back from vacation).  I won't get my hopes up but that would be awesome.  Tonight will be my 26th consecutive PIO injection.  I'm just a little bruised but hey - it's all worth it!
