We messed up a shot last night. 7 IVF's and this is the first time we've screwed up like this. I was getting up to get my shot and the phone rang, so I answered it. While I was talking to my brother, Brett started getting the shot ready and despite the fact that I've been saying for 2 days how much I am dying to cut down my lupron shot from 10 units to 5 on MONDAY, he proceeded to fill it with 10 units, signalled to me to expose some belly, I did, while talking on the phone, he gave me the shot. One second later, I pulled the phone away, and said, "that was 5 units, right?" and which point, there was about 5 minutes of things I refuse to print being said in a loud angry voice (edited to add, he was the one cursing- he felt so bad!!! I was just tearing up b/c I had such a bad headache!). I got off the phone with my brother and we discussed. I was freaked out. He was upset. I called the nurse line and talked to a nurse (my nurse is out on Mondays) and she says it is "probably" fine. I am hoping it won't affect anything. Of course, we have to screw it up on our most important cycle, right? Also, on top of that, I've really had the WORST lupron headaches this time. I am miserable - my eyeballs and teeth hurt this cycle. I was literally dying to lower the dose and then we messed up. I felt so bad for Brett because he was miserable about forgetting to lower the dose. I guess you just get so used to doing the same thing over and over again that it becomes routine and you forget to change it. So, I did some research last night and it seems that some people stay on 10 units the entire FET cycle. Some even do 20 units so I think an extra day of 10 units shouldn't hurt, right? after all, I think all the lupron is doing at this point is suppressing me, right?
