oh my, i sure am bloated and sore. i was given instructions to eat lots of protein, and drink a gallon of fluid per day, half of which has to be gatorade. i am doing all those things, but i have gained 2.5 pounds of fluid since the retrieval. i think it's okay, they said to expect to gain 1-2 pounds and call if i was gaining more than 2 pounds per day. the 2.5 pounds was over 2 days, so i think it's okay, but i feel sore and bloated! i actually caught myself doing a version of the pregnancy waddle where i was moving with my belly first. i feel like i can't bend over. i hope this goes away soon.
