Not feeling so great: Updated

I had my appointment at the RE this morning and it was....interesting.  Apparently my biggest follicle which was 16 (mm?) didn't get any bigger, but some of the smaller ones did.  A bunch of them.  So my doctor was debating about waiting yet another day but she said this made her nervous because I might have too many follicles.  So I agreed that yes, it made me nervous too and she decided to go ahead with IUI's tomorrow and Thursday.  Then I said something like "I'm not ready to have sextuplets" and she said something about how a few of those other follicles will probably ovulate too, so while it's not as high a likelihood if we go ahead tomorrow, it's still possible.  At which point I started freaking out inside my head and of course, she was on her way out the door.  I'm not good at thinking on my feet.  I always come up with the right thing to say or question to ask after the fact.

I've been nervous ever since.  Should we be canceling this cycle?  I feel so different then I ever did when I was trying to have Bean.  My belly aches and hurts if it gets pushed on in certain places.  I thought this was just because my left ovary has been hiding so they've been doing a lot of pushing and prodding from the inside to get a good scan of it.  I thought it was making me achy, but now I wonder if it's my ovaries.  I just feel crappy and I never really did before.  I felt emotionally crappy but I don't remember feeling physically crappy.  I know I'm probably overreacting and worrying too much.  Like I said before, my doctor doesn't want me to have sextuplets any more then I do.  I just feel kind of overwhelmed.

So I'm going to talk to my nurse when she calls today.  I'm pretty sure she's calling even though the IUI's are setup.  If she doesn't, I'm going to call her.  I just want to be sure that every thing's okay.  That my doctor isn't going beyond where I would want to go.  So we'll see what happens.

Update:  Bean had a long nap and I've had a chance to relax and think more.  I also talked to my nurse.  All that to say, I'm feeling much better.  I'm not as worried any more and I'm actually excited and ready to see what happens.  I'm ready to try to make a baby tomorrow!!!!
