Injection #1 done and I even did it myself (much to Steve's dismay).
I got home from work and Steve was at the grocery store...I just couldn't wait (I'm Type A- I told you!). And since the Leuprolide is the only drug I can inject myself I just went ahead and got it out of the way. Whew!
I won't bore you with all of the details but I will tell you that it was hard to stick myself with a needle- even though this is the smallest needle we will be using throughout our IVF treatment. Leuprolide suppresses my naturally occurring hormones and is injected in your upper arm or outer thigh (I chose thigh). It stung a little but wasn't bad at all.
So, Steve got home and I ran right out to the living room to meet him and blurted out- I already gave myself the shot! He laughed at me and said- I need the practice! As if he won't get enough practice this month...
One injection down....lots more to go ♥
