So Maybe Lupron isn't Cake...

Shooting Lupron in my chubby stomach, cake.  Lupron coursing through my hormonal body, not cake.

I felt great the first day of my Lupron shots, I felt OK the second day too.  From there on it all went down hill…  I was so tired from just working on Friday that I fell into bed at 6:30 PM and slept for 13.5 hours.  I wake up nauseous and it comes and goes all day.  I have right side ovary pain and the numb leg that always comes with it.  Plus head aches and general lack of give a damn.  Oh also I think its making me a little mean, Blue got a pretty good talking to the other night for not asking me how I was feeling.

This all hit me hardest on Sunday, Mothers day.  I had said the week before that I’d host the whole family for dinner, but when I woke up I was too tired to do anything.  Luckily my mom and sister came and helped but I felt like such a bum.  I sat on the couch while everyone else worked (and I was the only one in the room that wasn’t a mother….)

Anyway, I’m not very pleased with Lupron but I’ve heard it’s the worst so please keep your fingers crossed for me that those reports are true.  Blue comes home a few days after I cut my lupron in half and start follistim so hopefully he gets some energy and enthusiasm out of me!

Now on a positive note: I want to give a HUGE shout out to Princess over at on her BFP!!!  She is an amazing woman and one of the few that I want a BFP for even more than I want one for myself, she will be a kick ass mom! 


  1. I am sorry to hear you are feeling like crap. I feel your pain!!! I can feel my ovaries with every step I take. JOY!! But hearing that the Princess got a BFP makes me feel a lot better about being a pincushion. xoxoxo

  2. I hear ya on the terribleness of Lupron. Last time I did not have any headaches and this time...daily along with the fatigue and well some emotions!!!
    Best of luck with the stims :)

  3. Ohhhh. Thank you so much, Lindsey! Luv' ya.

    And Lupron is the worst as far as fatigue and physical pain goes. What you are going through is, unfortunately, totally normal but, like you said, you'll be moving on soon. Until then, rest as much as you need because that is really the only thing that will keep you sane. I can't wait to watch this cycle work for you.

  4. Oh, lupron. I will be starting it myself next week in preparation for our DE IVF cycle, and I'm not looking forward to it. I've already warned my husband.

    I hope you feel better soon, and I'm sure cutting down the dose will help.
