Wow, I can't believe I've already made it to the 3rd week!  When starting this whole thing I was worried that blogging and sharing my side effects every day would make the days drag on. I was worried I would constantly think about it. Anyways, below is how I felt during Week 3 of the Lupron shot. Hopefully this helps some of you. :)

Here is how I feel on Day 15:

1.) I feel great!

2.) I have dry mouth.

3.) I have some irritation down in my V. 

4.) I'm super hot and sweaty. Today I had to take my pants off with my mom and sister here because I had an intense hot flash. My butt was all wet and I was sweating like crazy! I had to put my frozen water bottle between my legs and sprawl out. It wa...

After having to cancel 3 FET transfers, my doctor thought it would be best to try a 1 month round of Lupron. Every time I started the vaginal Estradiol estrogen pills, plus 3 patches of estrogen every other day, I would get my raging period within 2 weeks.  My uterine lining would not thicken and I would start bleeding intensely.  We decided I would not be able to continue with this protocol. After an internal sonogram, my doctor was seeing a small growth on the outside of my uterus. She is worried it is yet another fibroid getting in the way. Fuuuuck.

I am so so frustrated. Here's what's been happening: 

School was ending and it was the PERFECT time for a FET. Finally after waiting so long after my Laparoscopic Myomectomy, it was time.  I would have no stresses and I could just relax for a few months before going back to work. 

I was put on the birth control pill and they sent me my calendar and protocol. I went in for a saline sonogram to be checked to make sure I was ready to go. The sonographer asked where I was in my menstrual cycle. I told her I was still on the birth control, so I didn't get it yet. I could tell by the look on her face that something was wrong. Fuck. I got into the small consultation room and was met by the nurse. She showed me the calendar and I MISSED the end date of my birth control pill! I WAS SOOOOOO PISSED. I wanted to cry. I can't believe I didn't read it right. I just missed it and read it wrong. FUCK FUCK FUCK. T...
