A picture is worth 1,000 words




Yesterdays lining check was shocking – 9 mm and triple striped. Holy crap! Go Ute Go!

I still have a big honking corpus luteum  sitting on my ovary from what appears to be my body’s confused ovulation. They drew a vial of blood to check and said if there was a problem they would call me. This was 23 hours ago and still no call so I’m assuming all is well. I’m sort of worried that posting this will jinx things, but hopefully not.

PIO injections begin tomorrow night and transfer will be Wednesday.

The nurse kindly drew the circles on my rump indicating where the Professor is to Ass-ault my Ass. I think they are quite fetching.

    Those circles are actually really helpful! I wish I would have asked for them! When I first started giving myself PIO shots with the good ole’ twist and turn routine I sometimes missed the mark. I didn’t really realize it until my sister, the nurse, corrected me. Oops.

    How funny! When I had my trigger shot, the nurse also drew circles for where the injection should go. We decided to make it funny and the hubs turned it into a bullseye and put the date and his initial on it. We took a picture too!

      You just have to make the best of a crappy situation sometimes, you know? The bullseye is super cute, too!

    That’s a good look! I think you should threaten the Professor to tattoo it on permanently if he ever goes outside the lines.

    Good luck with the shots!

    i dont like to give advice because people are unique, etc. and something that works for me might not work for you or the next person, but on jabbing vs easing, i must agree with dr. prof. husband on easing and not jabbing. i’m on ivf 2 and my dh is a type 1 diabetic. we give lots of needles around my house, hence the strong opinion about how to give them. dh and agree that it is most comfortable when you sort of test around for a spot where there arent so many nerves. your entire rump/stomach/thigh/whatever surface is not evenly distributed wtih nerves – there are spots that have less nerves that would be better for the needle to go into. so my dh and i test around a little bit… poke the needle in a tiny bit, if that spot is very uncomfortable, move on to another spot, etc repeat. once a spot is ‘ok’, then smoothly and quickly push the needle the rest of the way in. also, the nerves dont extend into your tush as far as the needle, so once you pass the upper layer of nerves, everything is good (as long as bones, etc are avoided). i actually do my own injections now because i can tell where it is going to hurt and where it is not by this testing method. dh used to do them, but i found that it was easier for me to just do it rather than tell him, “no, that hurts, 2 mm to the left please”, “no, move to the right a litte”, “wait, stop, you’re making me nervous!”.

    anyway, that’s my take for what it’s worth. good luck with the FET, and good luck with the more recently posted new therapist. sending positive space rays your way……… 🙂
