Due to travel and unexpectedly not having my travel buddy, I had to self-inject for my IUI shot for the first time ever. Not fun. Halfway through I was really wishing I had looked up a nurse on craigs.list to help me or something!
For those of you who told me about ice - thank you!!!! I don't know why I hadn't thought of that even before. There's no way I could have done this without ice. Must have ice from now on.
So, I was sitting there in the hotel room with my husband on the phone trying to figure out the different needles and how to deal with the vials. It's much more complicated than I had thought. I have to say, much as I don't think I want to do this again on my own, I'm glad I know what actually goes on instead of looking away the whole time B is preparing these shots for me.
It felt like it
When it was all said and done, I just kept crying. The stress of it all, plus the stinging. Even with ice.
It's done. I have some bruising. Sunday night, B can do this for me, only this time I'll actually know what he's doing.
Greater cause... greater cause. It's all for our little one who just hasn't shown themself yet!
So, thank you again, everyone for your support - that was awesome!!
Now, to enjoying the rest of my time in Chicago! Off to a bik.ram yoga class this morning and then will do some much needed shopping!
