DING! DING! DING!!! Ladies & Gentlemen - Round 5 has begun

I went in this morning for my day 3 bloodwork and ultrasound. Of course my wonderful physician is a teaching doctor and had one of her interns with her to do the ultrasound. They really shouldn't allow good looking men into the fertility field (just kidding of course). This time we are doubling up on my injectables and adding repronex into the mix. I have heard this drug stings like hell. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I'm doing the shots sub-q with the Gonal. Wow Cecily wasn't kidding. She warned me that when she mentions another blog on her website ( that it always gets around 600 hits. Well, I added a counter to see how close she was and if you scroll to the bottom of my page... she wasn't far off! Cecily is having a really horrendous day - please take a moment, stop by her blog and offer her some words of encouragement. She deserves it... She needs it! This weekend was pretty nice. No drugs to take, about a foot of snow, the Eagles won, New England won. What more could a girl ask for? We broke in our new snow blower (which was fun I must admit) and went through about 6 of those supermarket bundles of wood in our fireplace. I am the ultimate fireplace hog. I just park myself right in front of it and could just sit there for hours. Luckily for me... Marc is very happy enjoying the fire from afar. Well, just waiting on the doc to call with the go ahead on the drugs. Ladies and Gentlemen... Start your Injecting!!!!! (does anyone else have a vision of some girl waving a flag at the beginning of a race?).


  1. That sounds like my kind of scenario . . . the fireplace! I'm a fireplace hog too, and love to sit right in front of it until my back is so hot I can't stand it anymore. :o)

  2. i thought it was more like a nurse waving a coochie wand

  3. Good luck with the injections. One tip...try icing the site for about 2 minutes before and after injection. It makes it a lot less painful. I learned this tip when I got my Lovenox prescription. Oh yeah...the second tip is never stop long enough to total up the injections you will can seem daunting.
