***I AM NOT A DOCTOR. SPEAK TO YOUR DOCTOR/NURSE BEFORE TAKING YOUR PIO SHOT. THIS IS WHAT MY NURSE SHOWED ME***
FINALLY, the day had come. After the whole summer of cancelled FET's and having to be on Lupron for an entire month, I couldn't believe we made it to this point! We were at the Progesterone point of our second FET try! This is HUGE for us!
My new FET protocol was to use Progesterone in Oil right off the bat instead of the vaginal pills this time. It actually is not bad AT ALL! The day after I had to start PIO, my husband had to go away on a business trip! I was so scared to give myself the shot in the rear, but I had to do it. I had no choice. After talking with my nurse about how to properly administer the shot, it seemed easier.
Here are some tips I've learned along the way:
1.) DO NOT JUST GIVE YOURSELF THE SHOT IN THE MIDDLE OF YOUR BUTT!!!! It is INCORRECT!
OK, so hopefully this is my last week on Lupron! So far, the side effects really haven't been a big deal for me! I hope my last week goes smoothly!
Here is how I feel on Day 22:
1.) I feel great!
2.) I'm pretty tired.
3.) I am super gassy again.
4.) I have a similar stomach ache like I had in the first week on Lupron.
Here is how I feel on Day 23:
*After writing #1-6 below, this is what went down a few hours later: Holy crap I think I just experienced my first raging mood swing! Good thing my husband was out on a bike ride! I warned him when he got home that I was feeling super pissy.
