We did it!!!

Well, tonight I survived the first "stim" shot! I guess the hormones hit their all time low today (which is technically a desirable thing) as I could hardly get off the couch. Other than showering, going to the hospital to round for a few hours, and going to dinner, I've been parked on the couch all day! (NOT like me at all....)

Because I felt so washed out, I was eager to start the hormones today! We have to take the shot around the same time every night (within 1 hour), so we picked 7:30pm. Ms. Lokey came over to help and give Adam some moral support...and to be supportive to me as well. Adam has never given any type of injection before and has a huge issue with needles. So...this was a BIG deal to him!

Overall, I'd give him a B+....or maybe an A-. He did everything right, but was a pinch slow. Ms. Lokey helped him and talked him through the process step by step. I'm glad it's done (for tonight) and that each day will get easier and least from an injection standpoint.

I'm thrilled that the process has officially begun and just pray that we see some growing follicles on Wednesday! Thanks to everyone who has sent messages and left comments these past few weeks. I've read and deeply appreciated every one of them!

I'm glad you and Adam made it through this first injection! I know that has to feel like a major step. I'm also glad that you have Ms. Lokey there to help you both through it. I can't wait to read about those growing follicles after Wednesday!

Get'er Adam!!!! Very few husbands get to give their wives pain like this! Can't wait for the outcome! Just so you know upfront, I plan to find a way into the delivery room. I've heard most places like 2 people in a C-Section.... Adam and I.... done deal. All the other women you know have got to witness birth. I plan to witnes my neice/nephew.

Love "Aunt Leelee"
