My husband thinks he's a doctor

And I think it's adorable.

He gave me my second shot tonight. And he did a great job! I may or may not have made him do a few practice tries on an orange:) I was a bit nervous, being that no one other than a medical professional had ever given me a shot! It barely hurt. But that could be because I have plenty of belly fat to cushion the blow :) The meds itself burned a bit though.

I'm still in shock a little bit that we have actually started our second injectible cycle. I've been talking about doing this since November when we got the BFN from the last one. Every month, I would say "next month" and it never worked out. So here we are! And we have every reason to be hopeful.

Last night I took a trip down bloggers lane. I was trying to figure out how many injections (not including trigger) that I had to do with the last injectible cycle. And I came up with 11 injections? That doesn't seem right to me though. Seems like A LOT. I thought it was just a week, but maybe I blocked it out :) I read of few of my posts from last year and wow...felt so many different things while reading...sad...happy...excited...hopeful...I even laughed at some of them...cried at some (most) of them...

I'm really glad I started this blog, for so many reasons....

Today, I received another lovely gift from a friend at work! She was at CVS and they had a huge sale on ovulation tracker kits. They are normally $22 and she got them for $4 each. WOW! So unbelievably sweet of her!!! :)

I want to give a big ole congratulations shout out to Josey from My Cheap Version of Therapy!! She got her BFP!!! And in her own words "HFS!" I am so happy and excited for her!! And it gives me hope because she got her baby from an injectible/IUI cycle...:)

Appointment in the morning to check on the baby bakery...

Whohoo!! I ended up giving myself 9 shots, and if this hadn't worked, I'd have been doing more next time. SO glad and thankful/hopeful I won't need to do more.

Hoping and praying that this is your cycle!!!
