Yesterday I went into the ER (the only place that can administer the drug in my area) for 2 more shots of Methotrexate (the dose is divided into 2 shots), one in each butt cheek. The shots didn’t hurt this time. Maybe I had a more skilled nurse, or maybe I’m just so used to being poked and prodded over these last few weeks it didn’t phase me as much. I even went into work after I was finished this time. I did skip class last night though, in addition to the MTHX I have a cold right now (my 2nd since my first dose of MTHX) and I just felt so worn out. MTHX really does a number on your immune system (since it basically kills tons of cells, even the good ones), plus you’re not allowed to take any vitamins until your HCG returns to 0. When I got home from work I changed into my sweats and got into bed. I fell asleep at 6:30 pm and didn’t wake until 7:00 am this morning. TGIF today for sure. I can’t wait to lay in the bed all weekend.
I’m worried/scared I’ll get sick again in these next few weeks. I am generally a pretty healthy person, and have just felt so sickly lately by getting sick twice in one month. I’m just so ready to get myself back to normal.
I have blood draws scheduled for Monday & Thursday of next week, then I have another follow up scheduled with my RE on 10/28.
I had no idea this process would take so long. Today I should have been 11 weeks pregnant, but instead I’m STILL dealing with this ectopic pregnancy. Not too much longer (I hope) until I’m back to “normal”.
