Sure we've flirted before, but today was our first true "date". I know it was a date because I shaved my legs for the occasion. Of course I'm talking about Wandy. "Wandy" is the affectionate term that has been created for us Infertiles to refer to the probe on the ultrasound machine.
Today was the start of my relationship with Wandy. We're sure to see a lot of each other in the next month.
This morning I was back at the RE's for baseline bloodwork and ultrasound. Hubby came with me as we also had to have an injection lesson from the pharmacist.
My uterus lining looks "perfect" at 3mm. I have 7 small follicles on my right ovary and 5 on my left (or the other way around I can't remember anymore). I didn't know if they would see any follies since I've been taking suppression drugs for nearly 2 weeks now.
By 11am I got the call from the nurse. Everything looks great and I can start the injections today. They want me to do the injections between 1pm and 5pm each day. Hubby doesn't get home from work until closer to 6pm so I'm on my own.
Dear readers I have to tell you that I totally rocked my first injections! I had decided from the start that I had to be a big girl about this. Whenever I would get nervous I would think of the diabetic kids that I have known that do this every day. If they can do it for the rest of their lives, I can manage for 2 weeks.
I go back on Friday for another follow up and again on Monday for a "probing" (as Hubby calls it). Monday's probing - or as I prefer to call it - date with Wandy - will be special as it's also my b'day.
So if you're the praying type, please pray that this goes well for us. If you're not the praying type, can you cross your fingers or something for me?
