Lupron Day 1

Today is Lupron Day 1. I feel a mixture of emotions - I am excited to be starting this new cycle, I am afraid that this cycle will be more of the same in the end, I am worried about the side effects of the Lupron............basically, I continue to be worried, concerned, etc. Nothing new here - same sxxx different day!

I have been nonchalant about this cycle up to this point. I emailed my donor coordinator for my scripts earlier this week - I made sure that I had everything by Wednesday since I thought that Friday was the 30th. Mistake numero uno. This morning I didn't remember to do the shot until I almost walked out the door to meet a friend for breakfast. Mistake numero dos. Then I didn't remember to take my baby aspirin until I reviewed my calendar this morning. Mistake numero tres. I am currently three for three! What a day so far. Wow.

I am on my way to the pharmacy to pick up the next pack of BC pills (still strikes me as soooo ironic that I am taking these), pre-natal vitamins (I love the look of the pharmacist when I check out with both of these items together - boy, do I get some weird looks), and some baby aspirin.

I am also going to pick up a calendar to write everything down on - so I don't make mistake numero quatro!

Wish me luck holding it together! It appears that it is going to be a challenge.

Congratulations on getting started! Everytime I refill my BCP, dh gets this annoyed look on his face... although he doesn't say anything anymore. I agree... irony at its best!

It is SO strange and cruel to have to take BC through all of this....

*LOL* Yes. We're not at the point of IVF yet, but I remember saying to my husband once, shortly after our dx, "Well, I'll never been on birth control again." And now I think "well, maybe I will.."
Good luck!

How funny - the BCPs and the prenatal vitamins together at checkout. I get depressed seeing the amount of prenatal vitamins I have gone through, without seeing a glimmer of pregnancy!
