Down Time

We're not so super-duper psyched up over here these days. I guess we're just waiting around until S. is ready for her next insemination, which should be over the next week or so. This is a Clomid-only cycle, since we have to take an official class with a nurse on how to inject those expensive drugs correctly into S.'s body. I'm not really looking forward to it--I could barely manage the hcg shot into the belly in February. Doing the shot itself was fine, of course--it's physically shoving a needle into your loved one's body that is a little intimidating. Big props to all my diabetic peeps out there and their family members--don' t know how you do it every day!

Other than that, we've been keeping very busy lately--planning our garden, raking the lawn, planting peas, knitting, dinner...fun stuff. And vacation next week. Hopefully it will be warm enough to feel inspired to dig up our garden and build our raised beds. Otherwise, we're mellowing out, hoping those follicles are growing nice and plump and juicy.

Come on follies! The injectables weren't all that bad to give S. The needle was way smaller than the HCG!

I am hopeful that this next cycle is the ONE for you two and you never need to worry about injectibles. Grow, little follies, grow!

I can say that for me and Lo, we got used to the injectibles pretty quickly. Lo was giving me 1-2 injections every night and it gets less scary that way, unlike when it's just one trigger shot every month. But as I said, I'm hoping you don't have to do that.

Oh man-- it would be hard to give an HCG in the belly. Vanessa gives those to me in my behind. I think it's easier for her since she doesn't have to look me in the face while she does it. She gives me the injectables in the belly, but the needle is so tiny that we can both pretend it's just a bee stinger.
