WARNING: This is a puke post. Sorry, but it's what's going on right now.
So... PIO=not so friendly.
I am slowly learning that my body absolutely DESPISES this stuff! The last 3 days have left me questioning everything I eat, asking myself "are you prepared to taste it twice?" Really. Gross.
This is my 3rd cycle with the PIO, and so far each has been different. My first was the cycle ending with my ectopic. I took the progesterone for 33 days and although I got sick numerous times, I don't remember being very nauseous. It was more of an all of the sudden thing (which is exactly what happened during my entire pregnancy with LJ.)
My second cycle was pretty uneventful. I felt sick for about 45min. after the shot, but then I was fine for the rest of the day.
This cycle has me knocked on my ass!! The last 2 days, as DH has given me the shot, I've gotten nasty zingers from them. You know, that pain that radiates through your whole hip and thigh? And the worst part of that is that it hasn't gone away! WTF?? I have to sit so gingerly, that it makes LJ laugh. I can't carry my own purse because it rests directly over my injection sites.
And, OH! the nausea! I finally caved and had my Dr. call in some Zofran. Yesterday was our 10th wedding anniversary and to celebrate we went to dinner. After our meal, we stopped at the grocery store really quick (yeah, we're total romantics!) to pick up a few things. We hadn't been there 10 minutes before I was hovering over a PUBLIC toilet. (You have no reason to know this, but I am a MAJOR germaphobe!) It was a great anniversary to say the least. Today I am feeling better than yesterday, but then again... Zofran.
The worst part is that this is probably all for not. Assuming nothing has changed since DH's last SA, our chances are pretty much slim if any. Of course his numbers seem to jump around a bit, but still. I'm not holding my breath.
So, that's what's going on in the world of Meim. Anniversaries, painful hips, lots of nausea, and horrifying experiences in public restrooms.
Some day I'll look back and laugh. Right??
