now and ever more

each journey begins with one step . . . a baby step

a good laugh . . . April 4, 2012

at my expense.  🙂

So I got my Lupron shot ready this morning.  Got it out of the fridge and loaded the syringe.  I held it between my fingers to help speed the warming and thought it was ok after about a minute.  Prepped my tummy area and stuck it in.  And it hurt!  I was not prepared for that.  It hurt more than any other shot I have given myself both IVF cycles.  It only hurt when the meds went in, thankfully.  Nothing after.  So tonight I will wait about 10 minutes before sticking myself and will see how that goes.

And now for the laugh.  So I was putting the needle cap back on and did not have it straight.  The needle bent, went through the side of the needle cap and poked my finger!  It bled for a couple of minutes!  Had to laugh at myself over that one.  You would think it was my first time with the shots.

Tonight will be better!


So I have been reading some other blogs and ever since my 30-day blog challenge way back in January, I have been thinking of doing another one; a photo one.  I have seen some lists around the internet and have a few ideas of my own.  So in the next couple days I hope to have a plan and start posting photos.  I thought it would be fun to do that in addition to my IVF #3 journey.

So as a teaser here is one I took monday of the tree in our front yard in full bloom.

Thanks for reading!
