During the summers at work, we have work from home Friday’s. It’s amazing. I live 40 minutes, with no traffic, from my office. My fertility doctors is right near my office. So when the doctor told me on Wednesday that I had to come back on Friday morning for my monitoring appointment (ultrasound & bloodwork), those dreams of sleeping in today (after my 5am Lupron shot and then back to bed) were over.
My alarm clock went off at 5am so I could do my shot. Then I had to shower and get in the car, drive all the way into Boston. I had my quick appointment, got back in my car and drove all the way home. Needless to say I was back home and sitting in my kitchen by 8am.
I had an acupuncture appointment last night. I’m telling you, if you’re going through this process and you haven’t tried acupuncture, you really should. I’ve been exhausted and have had some really bad headaches. I felt like a new person after my appointment last night. I’m definitely still tired today but I don’t feel as horrible as I have the past few days with all these meds pumping through my body.
ALTHOUGHHHHHH after my Gonal F shot last night, I started my Menopur shot and the second I tried to inject the meds, the site of the injection started to BURN. Ouch. Those menopur shots have been the hardest this week. They hurt more than the others for some reason and I’ve started to bruise. I threw my needles into my sharps container and had a breakdown.
THIS. IS. EXHAUSTING. The whole entire process.
I just need to keep my eyes on the prize. Stay positive.
I’m doing the best I can…
