To find out why I had to have the Lupron shot and how I felt on the day I had the shot, click here.

Here is how I feel on Day 2:

1.) I woke up with slight flu-like symptoms.  When I say slight, I mean it really isn't bad at all.  I don't know how else to describe it.  My stomach feels like the small tiny flu piercing pains, but that sounds bad.  Just feeling a little off.  I felt pretty nauseous in the evening.

2.) I had no headache this morning, but it has creeped back slowly.  It turned into a raging headache in the back of my head and neck at night. Again, no coffee, so it could be a caffeine headache. I drink coffee regularly, 2-3 cups a day.  I also drink a lot of Pepsi, gross. Anyways, I've cut them out of my diet cold turkey.  I've tried this before and my headaches were intense.  This is why I think it's a combination of both the Lupron and caffeine withdrawal....

Warning: My recovery was NOT pretty.

After the egg collection, I was woozy for a bit and I was ready to get home. I got dressed and the nurse wheeled me down to the car. I was told to drink TONS of Gatorade and to eat a lot of protein and salt. They said I shouldn't only drink water because I needed a lot of electrolytes. I thought that sounded so weird. First of all, I HATE GATORADE. I MEAN I HATE IT. I never ever ever ever want to even look at it ever again. I hated it before this whole ordeal, and I have a strong anger towards it after. 

I was starving after the collection, so we went and got chicken and french fries to bring home. 

My husband is the BEST. He had set up our guest bedroom for my recovery room. It was so calming with the twinkle lights up.  He brought me everything I could need within reaching distance. All charging cords, saltines, Gatorade grrrrr, my phone and my iPad. I ate my food...
