I forgot that Lupron makes me fat. How could I forget that? I’ve been taking it for a solid week, and have changed nothing in regards to eating and activity level (and I’ll admit both are pretty shitty right now, but they have been for a couple of months) – and I’ve gained 4 pounds. FOUR effing POUNDS.
I am not happy over here.
It will be worth it once we have a second baby after how many ever cycles it takes – but right now – I’m hating this side effect. Now I remember why I was so chubby after 3 IVF cycles when I got pregnant with Matthew. I thought it was from being depressed, and I’m sure some of it was, but much of it was the drugs (which also explains why/how I lost it all and then some so quickly after having him).
Tomorrow, I seriously get serious about eating well. I can’t afford to keep this up.
Damned drugs. Damned infertility.
