I NEVER thought I would be able to give myself an injection of any sort. When the nurse at the RE's office gave me a baggy full of needles and directions on how to inject mysel with progesterone in oil I just smiled and listened to the the directions that the nurse gave me. Inside I was screaming, "HOLY COW!!!! I CAN'T DO THIS!!" I took the baggy, left the office and called Jeremy from my car. My first words to him were, "You're not going to believe what I have to do every night."
As I have mentioned before, we're out of town this weekend. Last night was the first night that I had to have an injection. Jeremy and I decided that it would be easiest for him to give me the shot. When it came time to give it to me last night he started to get squirmish and said he didn't want to hurt me. My MIL and I were telling him to just stick it in me and get it over with. We changed plans and decided to have my MIL give me the shot instead. You just haven't lived until your MIL is sticking a needle into your fat ass and injection oil into you. Quite the experience. It honestly didn't hurt at all, but today my butt is sore. I guess I should get used to it.
Afterwards, we were talking about how Jeremy will be giving me the shot when Jeremy and I both remembered that he would be out of town Tuesday night. CRAP. That meant I had to contort myself and give myself the injection. My worst nightmare. So this evening, while everyone was watching tv in the family room, I got my nerve up to give myself the shot so I knew I could get it done on Tuesday night. After counting to three a couple of times I got my nerve up and it really wasn't too bad. I'm a bit sore because I wasn't at the perfect angle but I did it.
I'm already starting to worry about this pregnancy. I guess that is normal with my history. I just can't shake my fears. All I can do is pray at this point.
