Snow and Stim Shots...

First of all, the snow has been beautiful...we have enjoyed every minute of it. We got to hang out with our good friends and neighbors, Johnny Mac & Mary, and just play in the snow.

Today was the start of my stimulation shots in addition to my Lupron Microdose shots. This morning's shot was a little painful. I am getting where I am anticipating the "stick" and I hesitated a bit...ouch. So, this evening I did my Lupron shot and just had to back myself up against the wall (I've learned that helps because I can't back away from the shot...ha...the things I do to psych myself out). It wasn't too painful...I tried not to think about it.

I got a little nervous with my Bravelle and Menopur shots. The little gray vial is my starting point. It is just the solution I mix the other six vials with. The five little green vials are meds that help me grow many eggs...the little pink vial is the one that helps my eggs mature. It took me about 10 minutes to mix all the vials.


Anyway, after this shot I felt sort of bad...felt like it all went to my head and my head started hurting and I had a huge hot flash. Oh well...I am willing to do anything for this to work.

It has been 5.5 hours and my head still is hurting...even after Tylenol.

I have at least five more days of this...I CAN DO IT! I CAN DO IT!

Anyway, here are some cute pictures from today. The boys LOVE the snow. I think we probably got about 8 inches...and we may get a few more tonight. Matt and I are going to play with the dogs tomorrow in the back yard and build another snow man...Matt said maybe even a castle! lol.
