The Blueberry Muffin Top

Nice Easter spent visiting family? Check.

Another holiday sans baby? Check.

Stomach (aka muffin top) bruised up from shots? Check.

Earlier today I was talking to my cousin Lynn (Hi Lynn!) about my belly shots. And how my muffin top is starting to look like a blueberry muffin top with all the bruises. For the 1% of you out there who aren't familiar with the term "muffin top" it means the fat part of your belly that hangs over your jeans. Gross, I know. But lynn and I were lauging so hard at this. I guess it's good I can find humor in all the crappiness...

My shot tonight took four tries. Ouch. I must be building up scar tissue because my husband said the needle was bouncing off my stomach. Still felt the prick though every time. On the fourth try, it was successful. Today is day 12 of shots and CD 14. I have an appt in the morning. And Im hoping for three things. That the follies have gotten bigger, that my Est # has gone up and that we'll be able to go ahead with the IUI on Tuesday. A lot to ask for, I know!!!

Still holding on to a big Easter basket of Hope? Check.

Cute blog!!! Thanks for stopping by! Best of luck with your IUI!!! I'm hoping you're able to go ahead as scheduled! Ouch with the multiple pricks... my first trigger shot took about 10 minutes and at least 30 "hesitation" pricks. I can't imagine trying to push through scarring! :(

Seriously?! said...

Check on Mel's blog, but I think a warm compress before the shot is supposed to help.

Regardless, I'm crossing everything for you! I hope your ovaries are overflowing with eggies right now!!! :)
