So many side effects, so little time…

July 27, 2008

Geez.  I really didn’t think it would be this bad.  I mean, I’ve been on stim drugs before, and they have NEVER made me feel the way I do right now.  I’m sweaty, then freezing cold.  Bloated, but hungry as hell.  I’ve had a constant “Lupron headache” for the last two weeks – I’ve described it as someone taking my optical nerves behind both eyes and pulling on them pretty much all day long.  And yesterday, the sick, uncomfortable feeling in my stomach started, it’s kind of like someone tugging and twisting on my ovaries all day long.  I practically did nothing yesterday, other than go out at night to see a movie (but only because Jeff wouldn’t go without me, and I knew he really wanted to see The Dark Knight).  I planned on getting up this morning to clean and then go to my friend’s baby’s baptism party, but I just can’t do it.  Thankfully, Jeff has offered to clean for me, and I guess I’ll just do the same thing I did yesterday – nothing.  I cannot tell you how bad this sucks, not feeling like myself.  I am not a lazy person, and hate that infertility is STILL keeping me from doing things I want to do.

I just have to keep telling myself that there’s only about one more week of the drugs.  And it WILL be worth it.
