BCP, Lupron, and Airport Injections

See that?! My last lone birth control pill will be taken tonight and another chapter in this IVF story will be in the books.  I started Lupron injections three days ago and while it's not my favorite thing to do, waking up and sticking myself with a needle, it's not horrible either.  DH even sat in for yesterday's injection. I think he thinks I'm a rockstar. I kind of feel like one.

In other news, I am making a previously unplanned trip back east next week.  My good friend, Kass, her dad is quickly losing his battle with throat cancer and I'm unsure whether he'll still be hanging on or already gone when I get there. Regardless, she needs me and I'm there. Sometimes I think texting and talking does less than sitting together and holding a hand in silence.  She would do the same for me - I have no doubt.

I called Delta yesterday and spoke with a representative about my Lupron and my needles. She said they were okay to bring on with me as carry on as long as everything was still in its original manufacturer's packaging and I had a letter from my doctor saying that I am under his care and taking these medicines.  I thought I would pass that information along to you in case you ever needed to know!  I'm glad they can stay with me because I will need to inject myself when I get to Memphis that morning!  That should be fun.

I hope everyone is having a great week and I am going to continue to enjoy this beautiful sunshine and the fact that (so far) Lupron has been kind and not dealt me too many side effects.  I'm a little crabby, but I'm always a little crabby, so who knows?! :)


  1. Im glad the lupron is being nice to you. Have a safe trip. So sweet of you to go be with your friend!

  2. Yay for only one more BCP! You are well on your way! Wow, you certainly are a good friend. I am sure your friend will be forever grateful for you going out of your way to be there for her. Glad to hear you can get your meds through airport security!

  3. That's so nice of you to put yourself aside and fly across the country to help your friend in her time of need.

    Congrats on finishing BCP and feeling comfortable with injection. And by the way thanks for the info on flying with medication, this info might be helpful one day.

  4. I'm sorry to hear about your friend's dad :(
    Have a good trip!! Yay for your last BCP!!!
