So it wasn't that easy.

Okay, so giving myself the shot was not as easy as I thought it would be. I got home around 7pm and I had until 8 to do it. Tony wasn't here, so I thought I would try it by myself. As I tried to take it out the packaging, I stuck myself with the needle and started bleeding and freaking out a little bit. So I was not off to a good start. Finally I iced my stomache for like 10 minutes and got ready to go. 1, 2, 3...nothing. 1,2,3...nothing, again and again, nothing. My hands just could not push it in no matter how hard I tried. My body was trembling. So I start breaking down crying. I call Tony and he doesn't answer, then my mom and she can't help me. So I tried to get Jessi over here to do it but she wasn't home. So I was on my own still. At this point it is about 7:30 and I don't know if I can do it. Finally, after more crying, and sticking myself 2 more times, I gather all my courage and said to my self, I can do it because I have to do it. So I bite the bullet and stab myself. After all that, it didn't even hurt except for the medicine going in and it was over in a few seconds. I was traumatized. I really hope that is the last time I have to do that because that will mean it worked.
Tomorrow we go to get the IUI. Think good thoughts....:-)
