Lupron, Weekend Getaway, and an Award

I'm surviving the nightly Lup.ron shots, but I'm not sure my waist will.

It's not the needles that I'm worried about, but the expansion that I'm sure is on it's way. For the last 2 days, I have become SO hungry. Hungry for anything, but especially sweets. Even after eating a full meal, an hour later, my stomach is asking for something more.

Other than a few hot flashes and the hunger issue, I'm pretty side effect free, so far. (knock on wood)

M. and I are escaping the real world for the weekend. Yay! We're heading north, to wine country, for a kid free, re-connecting weekend.
I'm super excited.
By noon tomorrow, I hope to be hoping from winery to winery tasting and snacking my way through the wine trail. Add dinner with REAL non-child related conversation and I'm in heaven! On top of it, hubby decided that we deserved some pampering, as we enter the next 3 stressful weeks, and booked us a spa day for Sunday. We're slated for some Reiki, some massage, and a pedicure for me!

  1. Congrats on your 200th post! Yay!

    Thanks for the award. I did it already.

    Have FUN this weekend. And please let me live vicariously through you? Please???

  2. Congrats on your 200th post!!! I'm proud of you for hanging in with the Lupron...I am wishing you the best of luck on this cycle. Thanks for the award, and your support on my blog!

  3. Congrats on 200! Woohoo!

    That sounds like a divine weekend. I could use a little of that myself.

    I'm sorry you've been hit with Lu.pron side effects. I always hope I'll be in the supposed statistical majority who don't have any side effects, but I have yet to meet anyone who was completely untouched by Lup.ron. I puffed up big time when I was on it (though in part that may have been due to my fondness for sugar!), but the weight went down when I started stimming. And then went back up after retrieval (but seems to be slowly going down now). Anyhow, Just a few more days of Lu.pron and then on to stims! How exciting!

  4. Hi Sweetie thanks so much for the award, we are having major computer issues here but I will do ASAP. Sorry to hear about the huge appetite, I know how hard you have been working to stay in shape :)Keep your eyes on the prize ok??

  9. Yeah for #200!
    Which "wine country?" Texas or Cali? We are going to be headed to Texas Wine Country this weekend for our 4 year anniversary with Miles in tow. I would have liked for it to be baby-free, but I miss him when he's gone!

    Nancy didn't nominate 6 people so I am considering myself nominated and will do the award today!
