I wrote this post yesterday, but it somehow vanished..annoying!
Yesterday we had our nursing appointment. I was quite devastated to learn
that the blood tests I had last week didn’t have my correct date of birth on
them, so I had to do them all over again. Last week when she did it, she punctured
my vein which lead to a big bruise on my arm. Not fun. She said I am the
hardest person she has ever taken blood from as my veins are really hard to
find. This my friends is why I hate needles.
She showed me the chart and when I will have to take my medication. One
needle for 5 days, two needles for 5 days, a booster shot, then gel for two
weeks shoved up my clacker. The gel resembles a lot of pregnancy symptoms and
said can make me feel quite sick, best to take it right before sleep! I had to
really pumped myself up to self inject, but I did it and it didn’t hurt. It's
still full on though, looking at a needle go in your body. I feel
underqualified, like a nurse should be administering this stuff to me.
Medication is so potent that I am only putting in 1/5 of a mil each time. A
tiny tiny tiny drop. Which means I have to hold the needle in for along time to
make sure it goes in. Will have to set up a little injection station in my
bathroom I think, make it all professional! lol I am super happy that I don’t
have to do the nasal spray. It is a horrible medication that has very strong
side effects and tastes horrible too.
So I have two more appointments to go, an ultrasound at the end of the
month, then our counselling appointment at the beginning of January, then we
start our first cycle mid Jan.
There is a problem however though. What happens if it works and I get
pregnant the first time? All my readers will want to know, but I won’t tell
until 12 weeks. So I can’t really blog in that time, then you guys will know
that I am pregnant. So I’ve decided that either way whether pregnant or not I
will take 2 months off my blog. Then when I come back I will tell you yay or
nay. Deal? deal!
