One would think that if a big dose Lupron = big headache, a micro-dose Lupron = micro headache. This is not so my friends!
Theoretically, lupron reduces the estrogen and then the stimulation meds start bringing it back. So since I'm already on day two of stim meds, you would think that the headache would be kaput or at least packing its bags to get the hell out of town. Grrr.
In other medication news, I think my husband is fan-tas-tic! I've been so use to doing the meds on my own, that it is a strange treat to have hubby right there with me. Even though I stab myself, he comes to the kitchen with me and helps me prep each med. Last night, I would have forgotten my Menopur because I had just woke up blearily from my nap. The forgetfulness has already started! ARGH!
Yesterday we finally had movies we wanted to see. Although there have been some movies out that I have wanted to see, our piddly little nearby theater doesn't have any of them! Typically I do not make my husband go see girly movies and instead we go see action or sci-fi because I love those too! But, upon seeing the preview for "Pando.rum" I thought I would pass since it looked a little gooey and nasty. So I trotted to the next theater and watched "Fame" which passed the time, but didn't do much more than that for me.
Today we drove about thirty minutes to the Ouiska Chitto River (Whiskey Chitta) to take Sweetpea swimming. We spent about an hour wading through the river and letting her run and splash. With sand flying and water flinging around, she ran back and forth between us. It was just so nice to have the sun shining, my dog, and my man. Even with my head raging, I turned on some peppy 80s music, rolled down the windows and bopped home.
We're continuing on our meds until Monday when we have our first checkup. Go follies!
