My first it-looks-worse-than-it-feels war scar

So… Today this happened.

Lupron:  1

Risa:      0

I think I panicked again right before my injection and messed up my mojo and actually squeed a little out loud as the needle went in.  Obviously I didn’t do something right.

Also today I had my first ‘roid rage at work.  Where I got so mad after a phone call that I teared up and then ranted and raved by myself in my office, which brought on a massive Lupron-induced headache.

Lupron:  3

Risa:      0

I finished that off by eating three tacos for lunch to get rid of my nausea.

Lupron:  4

Risa:      1

(We each got a point for that round.)

Chris admired my bruise and then told me he would give me my injection tomorrow.  Something about that he could run circles around my attempts at injections…

Lupron:   5

Risa:       1

Well-played Lupron, well played.

Yowch! I had one once that squirted out blood when M took out the needle. Lupron is such a bitch.

Risa holding it together while on a drug that reduces grown men to overtired toddler status = +infinity.

Though it doesn't feel like it, you're doing awesome. Hang in there.

Ugh. Sounds awful. I am feeling pretty lucky Lupron was never part of my protocol. Hang in there! It will be over soon enough.

Good call to have Chris give you the shot. Although now that I think about it…Andrew gave me some pretty nasty bruises. I think you're screwed either way.

Risa
Guest

Ah! I cringed when I read this. Stupid Lupron.

Risa
Guest

Yes Stacey! I agree, not normal. Good luck on your FET!!

Risa

Lupron sucks. It's so much worse than clomid ever was to me. All the side effects seem exemplified.

Risa
Guest

I know, it definitely doesn't look good. It doesn't hurt when I touch it, but when I walk I can feel it. 🙁

Risa
Guest

Ha ha! The best part is I get to keep taking it all through my cycle up to my retrieval but it's such a piddly amount that it almost doesn't seem worth it for an injection.

Risa
Guest

Ha ha today wasn't as bad. I had a headache in the morning but luckily that was about it.

Risa
Guest

🙂 very true.

Risa
Guest

I don't know I still have too nervous to let him. 🙂 maybe that was just a fluke?

Risa
Guest

No kidding. Ow.

Risa
Guest

Ha! The tacos were pretty delicious.

I'm saving these pictures to show the kiddies someday.

Risa
Guest

No. It definitely isn't. Maybe it was just a bad day. Today went better.

Risa
Guest

Yes! That's exactly it! I hate doing these shots. Definitely a source of anxiety right away in the morning.

Risa
Guest

Ha ha! Ok then you have a point. Lol I can't win.

Risa
Guest

Yep. You should feel lucky. Hopefully things don't get any worse, because I've heard some horror stories about Lupron.

Hopefully this will all be behind you and it will be Risa who wins the knock out round when you bring home that baby!
