Shots Class is Tomorrow

We go in for our shots training class tomorrow afternoon. E has already given me one shot before (the HCG for our cancelled IUI in February) so I think it should go pretty well. I'm also going to ask if I can switch BCPs since I have an extra pack of the ones I like better and I'll be taking them for two more weeks. It only took about two days of these ones to give me the complexion of a 14-year-old.

Nothing else too exciting on the IF front. We had a fairly relaxing weekend here. The weather was pretty nice so we got outside and started doing a little work in the front yard. The yard work doesn't seem nearly as bad when it's on your own house. We moved into this house about a year and a half ago and have been so busy with projects at our rental properties that we haven't done anything beyond mowing here. It was nice to have a move-in ready place, but I'm itching to start painting some walls and digging in the yard. We even made a compost bin. I might have to make more because it's almost full already.

Hopefully the nice weather will stick around so I can make some real progress on my plans for flower beds in front of the house. I think this will be a good way to distract myself at least a little.


  1. Ugh. I, too, am broken out like a 14 year old. ACK. But luckily I'm off the BCP (though it could be the Lupron causing this?)

  2. Oh wow! All the very best for the upcoming IVF cycle...Hope it delivers its purpose!

    Have fun planting flowers! Be good!


  3. Visiting from ICLW. Sounds like you had a nice weekend. I would love a compost bin, but we don't have a yard. Wishing you the best of luck on your upcoming cycle

  4. Good luck with the shots class. I was freaked out about injections, but the HCG has been going ok. PIO, though, that still freaks me out.

    Good for you composting! What a great way to improve your garden.

    And good luck with different BCPs, hopefully they let you switch!

  5. Happy ICLW!

    Enjoy your shots class -- mine was awkwardly hilarious. You get a bunch of nervous people in a room with a box of syringes and a rubber tummy, and how could it not be entertaining? :)

    Good luck with your cycle!

  6. Hope the class goes well. Good luck this cycle!


  7. Good luck on the class - they are easier than they look. You just have to approach it with confidence, and once you start administering the shot, keep going! Don't chicken out, or it will be worse.

    After our 7 IUI's and 1 IVF, I'm thinking about renting my services out and being a traveling ART injection machine :)
