Meds are In!!!

I received our meds today!! The PIO needles and syringes, sharps container, vaginal progesterone, doxy, and valium are all sitting on our dining room table. It's funny how excited I am about receiving a bunch of needles and medicines. It's like a reminder that this is REALLY happening.

I am freaking out a little about self injecting the PIO. Banks isn't able to give the injections so I'm on my own. I've been watching youtube videos on it and I think I can do it. I gave my own growth hormone shots for awhile and did fine. I'm more nervous about being able to reach the right area w/ my short arms. I'll figure it out I guess.

Other than that things are good. My parents are coming in this weekend and it'll be nice to see them but I have to get the house in shape before they come. Mom can be a little hypercritical when it comes to housekeeping so I've got to make sure the house is ready.

We also received our consent paperwork today and we've got it filled out to mail back tomorrow. Between that and the meds it's finally feeling real. It's still hard to imagine that next month this time we'll hopefully be having egg retrieval.

Congratulations! That's so exciting - I know we live in a completely different world than most when we get excited over receiving a box of needles! Good luck on self injecting the PIO. Those shots never bothered me much, but I've never tried to give one to myself. Hopefully, you'll be able to reach. I've seen others do it fairly easily on YouTube.
