Open for business

Thankfully, the letter to my ovaries must have been well received. NO CYSTS!! The nurse said "Beautiful ovaries. All clear and open for business." :)

My husband is away overnight for work, so my mom and my aunt (who's visiting) came by to give me the shot. My mom gave me all of my shots with the last injectible cycle, because she's a nurse and I'm way to chicken to give them to myself. This time, however, since we are not that close to my parent's house, my husband is going to be the shot giver! I trust him so much with so many things, but I am a bit nervous. I just have never received a shot (in the stomach or anywhere else) by someone who wasn't a medical professional :) It will be ok. Shot #1 is complete!!! Get cookin ovaries...

My lupron arrived at work today. Thank goodness. After yesterday's olympic trial of trying to get the delivery set up, I was a bit worried it wouldn't show. One of the ladies in the office brought the box down to our classroom and she said (doesn't know about my IF I don't think) "Ooohhh, anything fun?" Hmm...that's a big fat NOPE :) And then I stuck it in the staff room refridgerator. My baby making drugs sat amongst such ordinary things like sandwiches and Pepsi. I told my co-worker that if anyone steals it I will track them down and stab them with the syringes. ha! No, I'm not that violent, but it wouldn't be pretty if someone took off running with my box o' meds. :)

So, here's what's in my pill box and/or on the dining room table. I would have taken a picture, but honestly I'm feeling to lazy for that right now...

-Bravelle
-Lupron
-Novarel (trigger)
-Lots of syringes
-Baby Aspirin
-Prenatal vitamins
-Crinone (for later)

Can't forget about my thyroid med and my stomach meds! Oh and an allergy pill, too. Oh and Midol. It's like a pharmacy up in here.

But I am very excited and hopeful. I want this to work so badly. I will gladly take the shots like a champ, if it means we even have the slightest chance of making a baby...


I really believe it's possible to love a baby that hasn't even been conceived yet. I can feel that our baby is out there, I just hope it's ready to come home soon...

Yay to no cysts!!!

I remember thinking there was no way I could inject myself but I swear by the third day I could do it with my eyes closed...there was no way my hubby could do it...I think he was way too scared so I had to suck it up...in hindsight I'm glad it was me because it made me feel like I was actively participating in the whole scary process...

I had my mess delivered to my office, too. I was worried I'd get questioned about what I was putting in the fridge but I didn't, thankfully. Yay for no cysts! Best of luck to you and hubby with the shots.
