I wrote yesterday about my donor possibly developing OHSS... well it looks like that is, indeed, what's happened. I thought everyone was so careful - based on her high resting follicle count, etc.., we knew this was a potential issue, but my RE did everything she could to prevent it. My donor is being a total trooper and is not angry at us or the RE, but I'm just feeling so badly for her, knowing that this is all a result of donating for us.. I am hoping and praying there are no long-term consequences for her.
On top of that, and I know I shouldn't be thinking of this right now, I'm freaking out about finances. Since we are both teachers and insurance doesn't pay a penny for infertility, we're stretched fairly thin with this. We budgeted enough for at least one fresh and a couple frozen cycles if necessary, but that was without any sort of complication. We were paying for all my donor's appointments, meds, etc.. and I was compensating her for her time off work. MUCH less expensive than going through an agency, but still not cheap.. And now this. I have no idea what it's going to cost to treat her or get her through this or how many more hours of work she'll have to miss, but it's going to be expensive, I'm sure (will her insurance cover this? who normally pays for something like this). As I read this back over, it sounds so selfish and crazy that I'm worried about money when her health is in jeopardy, but that's not what I intend. We will do anything in the world that she needs!
My transfer is tomorrow. Those 22 beautiful, mature eggs that she donated have produced 20 beautiful embryos, but I'm having a lot of trouble focusing on anything positive. I've barely thought of them at all today, in fact, which make me sad. I just need their donor to be ok. I'm not sure why I'm so upset, since I do realize she'll probably be just fine in a few days... maybe it's all the hormones, but I'm in tears right now just typing this.
