7 weeks – The last shot? :)

December 13, 2006 at 11:31 pm 2 comments

Wow, seven weeks today. Yup… 7 weeks.

It is interesting how key days for me have always fallen on the 13th. I started IVF technically on Friday the 13th (in October of all months). That was the day of my very first Lupon shot. Since then I have had only 2 days when I didn’t have to take a shot (which were more than made up for by the days when I had to take more than one!!).

My transfer was on the 13th again. 13th of November. Another huge day.

And here I am now, on the 13h once again, two months since I started, and one month after this little precious life was placed into my uterus. Tomorrow, after what seemed like an eternal wait, it is finally time for my ultrasound. Which means that today… is likely the day of my last shot. Really? Could this be for real? After 2 long months of taking shots EVERY day…. maybe, just maybe this is the last one.

I have good indication that it is. Because on Monday we had ran out of syringes and DH went up to the doc’s office to pick some up. The nurse wanted him to buy a cartrige of 25 at first, but then when she realized I’m coming in only 3 days later, she just gave him 3, indicating that I probably will not be needing anymore.

I have a bruise on my left butt cheek the size of Brazil. Well maybe not that bad, but that was definitely my bad side during the whole process. I never quite came to dread the PIO shots, and I do have to give it to my husband who did an incredible job of injecting me for the last 2 months, but I can still honestly say that the PIO shots were not my favorites.

My favorite? Big surprise – Lupron. Maybe sentimental reasons there?

Well, hopefully the era of shots has come to and end. Which is a big milestone. Tomorrow is an even bigger one. DH and I said a prayer tonight for tomorrow… and it still hasn’t quite hit yet. Maybe (and hopefully) tomorrow will be the day that it will.

Wish us luck on our big ultrasound day!!!

    Wishing you all the best!

    I think Lupron is a sentimental favorite because it is done during the early, hopeful, “no big deal” part of the cycle. And you can hardly feel those needles.

    I too had a PIO bruise the size of Montana on both butt-cheeks, and we only did PIO for a week before changing to suppositories…
