Shot Report

Just a quick run down of the doctor's appointment today...

Things looked good on my ultrasound... all she really said at the time was that everything looked clear.

We then moved to a counseling room to go through the shot mixing and injection. In there she mentioned that my ovaries had several small follicles in them - so she was slightly concerned about hyper-stimulation. She said that with my young age (THANK YOU!!) and PCOS... there is always a possibility of that, and there is a condition where the hyper-stimulation can cause some serious problems... so they will be watching closely for that.

We went through the mixing of my first injection - I'll show you in pictures over the weekend... and I gave myself the first shot. No big deal there at all.

From there - I was done... confirmed my appointment for Tuesday morning and made another for Friday morning. Basically what will happen is that I will go through my appointment on Tuesday, and they'll have the blood work results back by the end of the day - at which time they will call and let me know if we need to adjust the dosage on the shots, continue with what we're doing, or cancel the cycle.

If all goes well - the IUI might be a week from Monday. It just seems so surreal. We'll be praying and keeping positive thoughts throughout the weekend, and then see what happens on Tuesday. John is going to go to all my remaining appointments with me... isn't that just the sweetest thing you've ever heard?

He wants to be as involved as he can be... so mixing the injections will be his job, and then his second job will be Chief Hand-Holder.


  1. Praise the Lord! Glad you had an encouraging appointment!

  2. Congratulations on getting the first shot down - that one can be the scariest! Hope all goes well and you avoid over-stimming.

  3. Praying and sending baby dust your way!

  4. Sounds like this was a great appointment. And how wonderful that John wants to be so involved. (Ok, that doesn't sound right but you know what I mean).

    Sending prayers your way.


Thank you so much for your comments. I really enjoy getting feedback on my writing!
