on your mark, get set...


Got the okay to do the trigger shot tonight, so the husband is nervously awaiting his first (but not his last) opportunity to enter the joy of injection land.  Tis more blessed to give than receive, they say, but in this case I think it's the opposite: as hard as it is to get an injection, it's a lot worse to be the one giving it, worrying about inflicting pain.  As for me, I'm delighted to be done with the belly shots - especially that menopurevil one, which burned worse every night.  I'll take a poke in the buttock over that any day.

It remains to be seen how I feel about that if 8 weeks of progesterone shots are needed...

Retrieval will be Thursday morning, 8:00am.  

Yesterday I bought an orchid.  I have never had any success at growing those things, or even keeping them alive.  I figure this is the time.  I'm ready to take on two of the things I haven't succeeded at yet - pregnancy and orchids.  If nothing else, it's a gorgeous sign of hope sitting in my living room.  I plan to fertilize it a bit on Thursday.  Just for fun.


  1. Yayyyy! Good luck with the trigger shot. Hoping for lots of healthy eggs at your retrieval. Wow, you're ready to go!!

  2. WOOHOO!!!

    blessings on hubby.

    blessings, blessings, blessings!

  3. So exciting! What a great idea to get an orchid. Good luck at the retrieval.
