Post subject: Fluid around ovary threatening pregnancy
My best mate's sister has finally conceived through IVF and is around 8 weeks which is great news.
However, the hospital have phoned today and have said there is too much fluid around an ovary and there wont be enough room for Bubs to grow. She has another scan on Weds to see if it has changed and discuss solutions/options.
Has anyone ever had any experience of this at all as my best mate is beside herself with worry.

no experience of this sorry - but it sounds like OHSS (ovarian hyper stimulation syndrome). The fluid usually goes down by itself slowly, but they can try to drain it if it is a worry. I think they advise plenty of rest, and i hope your friend feels better soon. I hope her scan has good news for her.
