1st Injection!

Today is the day we have been waiting for in the Hill house- the day of my very first injection! I am relieved to say everything went smoothly (for the most part- there was a mis-hap when I was putting together the injection cartridge, but no biggie!) and I feel much more relaxed knowing the first one is done and it will be easier from here on out. I could tell Husband was very nervous about making sure everything went PERFECTLY- he asked probably a bizillion questions and watched my every move as I put everything together and re read instructions several times.

Today was also Day 3 of my treatment! Notice one of my puppies is in the background watching his "momma"

Very nervous about doing this......

My Enemy! Although I must say this is a very small needle! I normally have no problems with shots, but for some reason I could feel this one. I think my mind was just playing tricks on me because of how nervous I was!

Husband at work! I am going to throw this out there....I ate dinner right before to have some extra "cushion" on my stomach for the injection! :)



All Done!

So glad we have now started! Just several more days of treatment and then I will go in for another ultrasound Monday to see if all of this has worked- its going to be a VERY long weekend counting down until Monday morning!

Hope those work for you! I think it would be really scary to give myself a shot. I know for sure James couldn't do it.

I could never give myself a shot. I hope it all works out for you. Sending prayers your way!

i took growth hormone in middle school, and had to give myself shots in the tummy too--- its much less painful than other areas of the body, and easier to see, LOL.

hope it all goes well :)

Hope you have a wonderful weekend and an even better Monday. I stumbled on to your blog and I am so glad I did. I know it's a stressful time- I will be thinking about you and checking back soon :-)

Glad your first injection went well! If you have any questions you can always ask. I had to do almost two whole cartridges there towards the end. Yes, I had to stick myself with the pen TWICE each night. It sucked. But it will be so worth it. I promise :)
