Shots! Shots! Shots!
Shots! Shots! Shots! Everybody!!!
Ok not everybody, just me. Do yall know that song??? I’m not talking about Vodka, Patron, or Hennesy. I am talking about IVF Shots. Menopur and Follistim to be exact. Finally after so much waiting I was able to get started with my IVF cycle. I would never have imagined I’d be so excited to give myself shots. As a matter of fact I never imagined I’d have to give myself IVF Shots. This journey to becoming a SIngle Mother By Choice has been longer and gone places that I have never imagined, like to the pharmacy to get all of those IVF meds. LOL
Doing the IVF shots was a lot easier than I thought. I think it is mostly a mental thing. You kind of have to psych yourself up for it. After working so hard to qualify for the IVF I was mentally ready. I used an ice pack to try and numb the area as best I could. That worked and it wasn’t very painful. Instead of me telling you about it check out the video below so you can see for yourself. Also the end of the video shows my first check up after the injections.
