Team Baby - The Ugly Truth

This post is a little too personal, but whatever. 
Me and fertility drugs do not mix well together.  My body overreacts to medications.  After my egg retrieval, my ovaries went into hyperstimulation.  Your ovaries become swollen and leak fluid into your abdomen.
My stomach got crazy huge and uncomfortable.
Then my face freaks out.  Ugh. So pretty huh.  The hCG trigger shot does not like my face.
My stomach is almost back to normal, but my face will take a while to calm down.  You do what ya gotta do right?

I know this is an old post. But can you tell me how long this lasted? I just had my retrieval and got 60 follicles out and I look about 7 months pregnant. They won't drain me Bc I'm not in pain but I am so uncomfortable
