Day 6 of Meds

Just thought I’d pop on a give a quick update on how the cycle is going so far. Today is the 6th day I’ve been on meds. I’m still taking the doxycycline (antibiotic), lupron, baby aspirin, and prenatal vitamins. I took my last birth control pill last night so now we’re waiting on CD 1 to know when I need to go in for my first blood test. CD 1 should be Wednesday or Thursday. If all is well there I will start the delestrogen injections on Monday the 6th.

So far it’s all going well. I’ve remembered to take the antibiotic with food so it doesn’t upset my stomach (made that mistake once after my very first transfer, haven’t done it since). The injections are easy, the needles are tiny and it’s injected near my belly button so it’s easy to reach.

I am definitely feeling more bloated, but it was also Thanksgiving weekend so I ate way too much food too. Hard to say for sure the cause 😆 Hopefully after a week of eating normally it goes down a bit. Other than that no real side effects. I’m trying to make sure to drink a lot of water to combat the headaches that can come along with the Lupron. So far so good so hopefully that keeps up.

I’ll update again after my blood test results!
