An update on me: I have been on Lupron for 11 days now with very minimal side effects. The biggest side effect was exhaustion. That also could be attributed to my significant reduction in caffeine, but I think it is the Lupron. I get very tired at night. I am normally a night owl, but have moved my bedtime up by about 3 hours. I also noticed that once I stopped BCP and my estrogen dropped, I started getting headaches. Not bad, but low and dull. Tylenol didn't help, but they weren't debilitating so I push through.
I start Stims tomorrow - 300 Follistim and then on Monday, I drop to 150 Follistim and add in 75 Menopur. My first monitoring ultrasound will be Friday, April 6. That's Good Friday, so I am hoping it will be a Good Friday indeed!
QOTW: I live in Dallas, TX and I love it. I grew up in Shreveport, LA and then lived in Baton Rouge for 6 years. I moved to Dallas almost 15 years ago and while I will always be a Louisiana girl at heart, Texas is my home and I am a proud Texan. I actually moved here to follow a boy (oh the irony), but we broke up 3 months later. I live in the city of Dallas in my recently remodeled tiny 2 BR shoe box condo. I stay here because my mortgage is cheap and I am paying OOP for IVF. However, once I get pregnant, pay off this IVF and save up some cash, I will probably buy or build a house out in the suburbs.
Welcome back TST - I hope you had a fabulous vacation!
Good luck to everyone this coming week and have a fantastic weekend!!!
