A Shot in the tummy

This morning was the first day that I had to give myself an injection. I was very worried about having the guts to do it, which is strange because I don't scare easily. Something didn't sit right with me once I saw that bag full of needles yesterday. Last night I had nightmares about many different needles and injections.

Now I sound like one of those people with a needle phobia (and I am so not one of them). So, I got up this morning, walked out into the living room knowing what was coming. I got out my needles and my vial of Lupron. I pulled the Lupron into the syringe. I wiped a little spot on my tummy with the alcohol wipe and I took a huge breath. I sat on the sofa gave that needle one last glance and stuck the needle into my tummy. I pushed the plunger, relieved that it hurt very, very little.

I was extremely proud of myself at this moment. It was as if I truly accomplished something that many people never will. I don't know why, but it felt like I have now proved that there is NOTHING I won't do to get preggers. Now the injection holds no terror for me. I am sure that it will now be a trivial part of my daily ritual. That is, of course, until we have to do the 2-inch intra-muscular injection...

Don't let those IM injects fool ya, they're really not that bad. At least you've gotten your feet wet w/ the sub-q ones. I'm proud of you, I know how hard that first solo shot is. (hugs)
