One shot down...

Hopefully a lot more to go!

I did my first Lupron injection for IVF #3 this morning and took my first dose of dexamethasone (steroid).  Lupron is probably my favorite injectable med because it is so easy.  The doses are super small and you use a tiny insulin syringe/needle.  Dexamethasone is my least favorite med (I even like PIO better than dex!).  I blame dex for my insomnia and weight gain.

For those that wonder what my daily med routine looks like, here is what I am currently taking:

Ubiquinol (advanced active CoQ10) 300mg
L-Arginine 2000mg
DHA 200mg
Vitamin C 500mg
Myo Inositol 3g (directions say 2 3g doses daily, but I usually forget the 2nd dose)
Prenatal Vitamin w/DHA
Melatonin 3g

IVF Meds
Lupron 10 units
Dexamethasone .75mg
Birth Control Pill
