The Shot

Wow! What a 3 day weekend! We had a fish fry Saturday night. We had so much fun. I haven't laughed like that in a long time. It is so nice to get everyone together. I gave myself my first shot tonight. I just took a deep breath and went for it. I didn't think it was bad. I might just be a little nurse after these hormones. Anyone need a shot? I do not want to go back to work tomorrow. I would love to have a few more days. I am so addicted to Twilight. I've already read the first book. I'm reading New Moon now. Of course, I had to rent the movie as soon as I finished the book. I liked the movie, but it wasn't as detailed as the book. I think I will be sad when the books end. I will have to find something else to read.

Why does my husband have to be so smart? Makes me sick!

The Infertility Journey

The journey of infertility has been crazy! I had exploratory surgery last week. They didn't find anything abnormal. I had mixed feelings about the results. I'm happy I'm okay, but part of me wanted them to find something. I just want answers on why I can't seem to get pregnant. I don't know if I will ever have an answer to this question. I'm finally feeling good. We decided this week to start hormone injections. I almost passed out when I found out it's going to cost me $1400. Of course, insurance doesn't pay for them. BIG SHOCKER! I will have to give myself a shot every day for a month. My husband thought he was going to get to give them to me. I can tell you the gleam in his eyes scared me. LOL But, I can do it myself since I can to the injections in my stomach. I can't wait to see what kind of crazed lunatic I will become on hormones. When I took Clomid, I had hot flashes as if I was experiencing menopause. I guess we will see. I have a calendar, but I'm still a nervous wreck about keeping track. Going through infertility treatments is like a second job. I pray this will work this time. I'm so thankful to have a friend who has experienced this difficult situation. She answers all of my questions. Keep us in your prayers!

OTS - I finally gave in and am reading Twilight. I can't wait to see if it is as good as everyone tells me.
