Can we say Pin Cushion?

It's been a while and a lot has happened. A week and a half ago, I had a sonogram done to make sure I didn't have any cysts on my ovaries before I started the Lupron. Sonogram looked great and I got the green light from Leanne (ivf doctor's nurse) to go ahead and start my Lupron shots. Saturday morning bright and early, we had the car packed down ready for Disney. One last check of the house and wait... I need to take my shot. Giving yourself a shot is very weird to say the least. I knew it wouldn't hurt, but my brain wouldn't let my hand put the shot into my stomach. It took a few minutes and it was done. That wasn't so bad. So, I have been giving my self shots for 10 days now and it is going great. The kids are now giving me my shots (with assistance of course.) The best part is... No side effects so far! YAY for me! This morning I had another sonogram done so that I can start my next set of meds. Estradoil...sp? I am to continue with the shots, just a lower dose. Lets see how that goes. All in all everything is going great. Just feeling a little like a pin cushion! PS. Disney was a BLAST!!!!

Okay, so I received my medication about a week and a half ago. The doctor shipped them to me in a huge FedEx box. I thought... WOW, I have to take all of this medication. Pills galore, lots of shots and even a few suppositories. (Yikes) LOL! I also received my calenders for the next two months! YAY! I start my Lupron shots on the 13th, my first day of Disney. This is gonna be fun! We also have a transfer date! BIGGER YAY! Drum roll please.................April 18th. Whew that is really close! (Deep Breath) Okay, so I am so super psyched about this and so ready. Is it crazy that I have already started picking up cute shirts I can wear with a belly?
