Due Dates...1st Shot!

Well-here it is... the shot I just gave myself. Delestrogen .2 with a 22 gauge 1 1/2 inch needle. I have no problem giving them to myself, in fact I prefer it. The sheer terror on DH's face and his shaking hand made me RUN like the wind and give it to myself. After you do it once, it's no biggie. PLUS, it feels good to be doing "SOMETHING" for my little embies AND to get this pregnancy party started that I can do myself! GROW LINING GROW! It helps to rub the area after so it won't be sore. I rub it whenever I think of it and it helps calm the burn tremendously. I psychotically looked up my due dates again HERE. It is a GREAT site for telling you how the baby is developing, when each trimester starts etc for 3 or 5 day FET's or IVF pregnancies.

So here are my big days with a 5 day FET of October 22nd.

SINGLETON Due Date: July 10, 2010
TWINS Due Date: June 18, 2010 (prefer this :)

And it says that my 2nd trimester will begin December 22nd so it would be PERFECT to tell our family at Christmas time!

Just 23 days and Mommy will be there guys!


  1. YIKES - That looks scary!!! But, it will be so worth it!!! :)

  2. I can't wait until you are prego with your TWINS!!!!

  3. You are a braver woman than I am. I take shots daily for my multiple sclerosis, but I am a sissy and use an auto-injector. :-)

    So happy for you! :-)

  4. So sweet. Yes, you'll be there soon! It is exciting to think about the due dates...unless you're me and too scared to think beyond today. I didn't even know my baby's due date until AFTER our first ultrasound. The girl at the OB's reception desk asked me and I said, "I have no idea." But you are a brave woman! Obviously, since you willingly stab yourself with that big ole needle. Wow!

  5. So the shots are in the bum right?!! Best not to be rubbing it in public...heehee! This is very exciting times, girlfriend! Keep up the happy face even after 20 shots in the same general area (alternated). And trying to find a spot that hasn't been punctured is always a fun scavanger hunt for DH. But I'm pretty sure this is for the progesterone shots, which will come soon!!! I had to visit the doc for tushy pain from shot and he compared me to an IV drug user! GREAT!!! He even brought in 3 docs to check out my tushy...Good thing I had on my bright red thong and 2 out of the 3 docs were cute! That made it all soo worth the trip in....(yeah, right)!

  6. I am so happy for you! I can't wait to read about your positive beta:):) Blessings and hope for you and yours!

  7. Oh yeah, I know that needle very well LOL- I have a large bruise on my right hip from a small hematoma...A couple of cycles ago, I had to go out of town and had to the do the injections myself- YUCK! My DH is a veterinarian, so I tell him "miss and you'll get bit" :)

    Hang in there! Praying for a nice fluffy lining for your embies!

  8. YOU ARE IN MY THOUGHTS, more than you know! Thanks for your comment on the AFA website. It's wonderful to see how someone else is moving through this process. And to get matched so quickly, it IS a miracle. Unfortunately, turns out my pregnancy was 'biochemical', and didn't quite take. We will take a break for a month and then try again, with 10 young embryos left.
