...boy, do you have my sympathy on that one! I didn't realize quite how icky I felt till I started feeling better - ugh. Even low level nausea is very unpleasant - you're amazing to go through that for your donations every time, and I hope it doesn't last as your body adjusts to the hormones!
Of course, as you say, you'll get to feel loopy and emotional instead....
Sorry I did'nt have time to write over weekend - we had a street party yesterday (100 years since our road was built!) and its been hectic. Will catch up soon!
(((huggles))) and anti-nausea vibes by the bucketfull,
It's not horrible nausea, it definitely could be worse, but it's unpleasant as I know you both know lol I didn't mean to sound like I was complaining about it... the way I see it, well 2 ways: 1) I've always been sensitive to bcp's, so this is something I come to expect, no surprises (just was hoping I would be lucky like last cycle when I really had no nausea), and 2) I can deal with a few weeks of nausea so someone like you can experience it for a few months Not such a bad tradeoff!!! It'll pass soon enough and I'm drinking my fluids (mostly my iced green tea for now, till Lupron starts) and that's helping a little.
Thank you both for the hugs and support, please don't sympathize though - you both know how much I love doing this!
I start Lupron on July 17th and then go in for b/w and u/s for suppression check on July 29th and hopefully start stims that night! So far everything seems to be fine on both sides of this, so we're not anticipating any changes right now.
I need to buy a big pitcher - I usually buy the iced green tea by the gallon, but it's not decaf, so I'll have to start brewing hot decaf green and then refrigerating. Cheers Claire!
it really is ages though, right? LOL and would you believe I'm cranky?!? Guess I've been added-hormone free for too long lol Oh well, there's always tea and friend Speaking of which... looks like October 1-3 I may be passing through London - I'll keep you posted though!
LOL No saboteurs these days though thankfully! Things are moving along well on that front - loads of changes coming up in fact - huge ones! I'll fill you in soon, don't have too many details yet though.
