Today will be day ten of my lupron shots and three days off my birth control pills. No period yet. It feels like she is coming, but she hasn’t shown up. From googling around it seems that most people get their period three to 10 days after stopping their birth control pills while on lupron. I’m not too worried though. I know my period likes to not show up so I specifically asked when I was at my consult what I should do if she doesn’t show on time. The nurse said that if she isn’t here by this coming monday that I should call them and I will go in and have my baseline scan anyways and if things are fine then I will just start with the follistim. I also have an appointment scheduled on tuesday so I might see if I can combine it with a baseline scan. What am I doing on tuesday? They are updating all my yearly tests – infectious diseases, pap smear, etc. Everything they do for a new person coming into the center for the first time. I am not looking forward to all the blood they are going to take. I remember it was a lot.
When I had my consult I was asking about side effects. She said if I was going to feel much I was going to really feel it this weekend. She was right. I have been having increasing hot flashes. I laid on top of the bed last night in shorts underneath the ceiling fan and was trying to cool down. Then this morning I was cold so I got underneath the blanket. Then I got really hot so I took it off. Then I put it back on again lol. This morning I also had big plans of sleeping in, but that didn’t happen. I woke up the normal time I get up for work and could not fall back asleep. So annoying! I tried taking a nap today and it did not work. I could only fall asleep for maybe 10minutes or so. Ok enough complaining.
We went to a minor league baseball game last night and it was fun. We went with a bunch of work people. I work with such nice people. Too bad we lost. We didn’t even score once. I also bought a new purse. My old purse’s straps were starting to frey and wear through. I got my new one from ko.hls. It’s cute and big enough to hold everything I lug around. I like to have everything I need on hand including any meds, a water bottle, wallet, gar.min, with plenty of room to spare. They were having a sale and I saved $20 😉This is the one I got. It also came with two matching accessories.
