I did it! I gave myself my first Lupron injection today!
Okay, okay, I know many of you have given yourselves hundreds of shots. And I know that Lupron can cause all kinds of nasty side effects. The headaches. The hot flashes. The bad dreams. Acne? (great...looking forward to that).
But I feel celebratory because with that first injection, I feel like I have officially started this cycle. The BCPs by themselves didn't feel very important. A shot, however, is tough to ignore! I'm one day closer to transfer.
Oh, and one other unexpected side effect. A good one! My husband seems unusually sweet and protective of me today. Hmmmm, I think he's realizing that this is "for real" too!
