So, shots have been going for about three weeks... and at this point the stomach ones (Lupron) have become second nature. I can do them in a matter of seconds. The needle is nothing now...
Is that not the conclusion that YOU came to? Me neither.
So we went to San Francisco for Turkey Day and traffic was predictably terrible. So we wound up being much later than anticipated. At 7:30 I say to the hubby, I gotta do shots in like 30 minutes... Ok- We will stop somewhere. So we get to Burger King AKA County Hospital and their restrooms are FOUL. I didn't even want to wash my hands for fear of contracting a disease. So that was out.
I go back to the car and we decide to do it in the car. Rump up, under street lights and in a VERY public place. Yes. I looked like a crack head. Because I then proceeded to whip out my other syringe and shoot up my belly with Lupron. Quite the thrilling adventure that I hope to never repeat.
Anyway... things are on track, for the most part. Which is swell. A couple more weeks until the transfer as long as all goes well... I can't wait!

It was like a clown car full of needles and vials and stuff. Never ending box of drugs. I thought it was only 2 or 3 that were coming. So it was very surprising when I pulled SIX prescriptions out of the box. I am not kidding when I say that I almost had an anxiety attack.
THEN, I read through the instructions for the first set of shots. TWENTY EIGHT STEPS. As in two less than THIRTY. Um, excuse me? It's going to take me an hour to give myself a shot. I don't have this sort of time allotted in my schedule.
The next day the fertility clinic called to discuss the meds with me. Thank goodness. She explained that the extra ones were for later on down the road and then told me which ones to focus on. That helped. She also said they had a video on their website that goes through giving the shots. Step by step. All 28 of them. I haven't had a chance to view this, but I will by tomorrow.
Can you believe I start meds tomorrow? I am wondering of the side effects... I mean if you are suppressing and injecting various hormones, something is bound to happen. I will keep you updated on Monday with photos and reports of crazy out of control hormones.
