We finally started meds last night. Friday the doctor called and said that my TSH levels went from a 7 to a 4.1. Woo Hoo. I had my baseline BW and US yesterday. Everything looked great.
If everything stays on track we will have our beta Oct. 22 Which is just a few days before DH's birthday! Wouldn't that be a great birthday present?!?!?
Now for a funny story about last night. For some reason I get nervous about the injections. I have only had the Ovidril injections right before the IUI's so this is definitely different. As soon as DH walked in the door I bombarded him and said OK lets do the injection now. I didn't want to be anticipating it all night. Well this threw him off, he already gets nervous about them. Only cause he doesn't want to hurt me. So after I was done mixing everything, I put the needle on and took the cap off. I jumped up on the counter and was waiting. I had him so worked up he dropped the syringe on the floor. Before it hit, he was fumbling around with it trying to keep it from hitting the floor. Surprisingly he didn't get stuck anywhere. We didn't lose any of the meds in the process so we just switched out the needle. I felt bad for him. I know he hates doing it but that's the only way it will get done. I CAN NOT give them to myself.
The poke itself didn't hurt, the meds going in did a teeny tiny bit. But afterwards it felt like I had been stung by a bee. I had the urge to scratch or slap it. Today my tummy is sore to the touch. Now I know why they told me to switch sides each night.
If you have gone through any injectables were you able to give them to yourself?
Now for a quick side note. Yesterday my sister had her baby! Bristol Leighann 6lbs 1oz 18" long. She is so sweet.
