Started shots

Last night was the first night of shots. Or rather, I should say "shot". I only have to give one shot at this time...Lupron. I think this is ok because the needle for this shot is pretty tiny. I was at Delta Gamma last night advising, and since I was told to give my shot at 7pm, I had the pleasure of excusing myself from the meeting and gave my shot in the bathroom. Since I have become quite the pro at shot giving, it only took a minute or two to set everthing up and administer. But it was funny because my hand was shaking the whole time. I don't know if it's because it's been a couple months since I have given shots or just that I was in a different place. Regardless, the shot was a success.

I am still taking birth control and will stop those pills on Thursday. At the end of next week I will add my Estrace, and baby asprin pills. I am not exactly sure what these do, but if it works, I'm not complaining.

I can say starting this process feels like a weight being lifted off my shoulders. The waiting for things to start is so hard and since Round #2 has taken us 5 months instead of the regular one month, I can definetly say that both Bobby and I are relieved to get this process underway.

I've decided to take time off of work again during this process. Even though I won't be producing eggs for a retreival, I still think the "limited stress" thing is a good idea. So I'm planning to take all of the days I go to Spokane for Dr. appointments off and then I think I'm going to take the entire week of transfer off and take it really easy. My first appointment isn't until the 20th, so until then I will continue to post about the shots, pills, hormones, and other little quirky details. I will try to post pictures later this week.

When are your Spokane trips? It would be fun to meet for coffee (decaf, of course).
