3 shots in

and boy do I feel like I've been hit by a truck.  It doesn't help that not only am I feeling the side effects of the Lupron and Follistim (weepiness, headache, exhaustion) but I apparently came down with the Flu on Friday night/Saturday morning.  I mean, hardcore fever and serious body aches, on top of the headache that I already had.  Stuffiness and sore throat decided to throw themselves into the mix, I mean why not?  With so many other issues they wanted to join the party.

By Saturday night I was running over 104 degree fever and K though he'd have to take me to the ER.  I took a nice cool bath and it brought it down a couple of degrees.  I talked to the RE about it, they were not worried.

The follistim hasn't been too bad.  Although yesterday really brought on the weepiness full force.  I mean seriously, we're watching the news tonight and the story was about a woman who was pretending to be a Vet working at an animal hospital to pay for her drug problem.  She was caught, and as they are going over the story, I'm crying.  K looked at me like I was insane.

Um, yeah.  I love me some good reasons to cry.  Crazy fake addict vet ladies top that list man, doesn't everyone cry at stories like that?

This morning I had my u/s and b/w.  All looked good, although I don't know what my estrogen level was - I felt too crappy when they called me.  Either way, I am to remain on 5 units of Lupron and 125 units of Follistim.  Next u/s and b/w is on Thursday.  Keeping my fingers crossed that I feel better tomorrow, and that the next appointment goes well!!


  1. Aw... I'm about 24 hours behind you in the flu department. With a severe sore throat and the occasional sniffle. My fever is on the down-low as of this afternoon... I hope you've gotten better too! It'll take a couple of days for both of us to get the energy back I'm sure.

    Hang in there!

    (oh, it's not just your hormones... the fake vet story was horrible, I caught part of it on the news too)

  2. So sorry you're feeling so awful! Sending you healthy vibes!

  3. sorry you're feeling crappy. good luck at the next appt!

  4. Hope you're over that nasty flu by now (sorry I'm now just catching up on blogs for the past week, and I'm doing it in order so I'll no doubt find out more in a few mins). Glad the u/s and b/w went well too :-)
