Ugh and Blech.

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??

that is sooo awful!!! AAAGGGGHHH!
I totally get the Public Toilet thing btw-I am a germaphobe too. Plus, those are just gross anyway. I'm sorry the PIO's are making you feel so awful. Is there any particular reason why? Because from what you've said it doesn't sound like it happens all the time. Is it worth asking the doc about? Urgh I hate that you have to think about seeing what you've eaten for the 2nd time. You poor thing! Hoping that the Zofran makes you feel better and not worse. I have my fingers crossed for you this cycle did work-but I understand you not wanting to be too optimistic. Love xxxxoooo

Oh, that's rotten. A public toilet is the worst place to be when you're feeling sick - you're sure to feel more sick just from looking at it. Really really hoping with you that there will come a day when all this will seem funny.

Oh, what a mightmare. I'm so sorry. I never had nausea with my PIO shots, so I don't know what suggestions to offer. Gingersnap cookies or ginger candies? Ginger Ale?

Oh, I am so very sorry. I wish there was something I could do to help. I'm still hoping for you!

Zofran worked well for me - other than driving my bp down.

Hope this passes quickly and you are feeling much better and can steer clear of public restrooms again.
