Not the fun kind of shots but I’m just as excited believe it or not. I had my first ultrasound and bloodwork of the cycle this morning and I started Lupron Shots that will be 2x a day for the entire length.(anywhere from 10-14 more days) Friday I will add 2 more shots of Follistim @300 units and Menopur @150 units. Already starting to feel the headache and stomach distress side effects but overall not terrible. For now I just have to keep chugging water.
I had a slight issue with the Lupron. I made a rookie mistake of NOT quadruple checking the expiration dates and unfortunately the pharmacy sent me a vial that expires tomorrow 2/22/18🙄🙄. Luckily we realized it in time and they will overnight me a vial for free due to the mistake. Crisis (not panic attack) averted but lesson learned!
I have a wonderful coworker who has been through IVF, that gave me this card for Christmas. I keep it pinned in front of me as a daily reminder❤️B E L I E V E
