First Day of Lupron - A success

This is Allison

Well, it wasn't bad at all. I got everything ready, put the vial of Lupron in front of me, wiped the top off with a alcohol wipe, wiped the area of injection (fat tummy area), pulled the cover off of the needle, drew the medicine in the needle, then walked over to my hubby so he could watch me. i was holding my shirt with my chin, pinched an inch, and just stood there looking at the site. :) Doug was like.....uh, what's wrong with you? Inject it. So, I just stood there looking at the inch I had pinched. :) And looked and looked and looked. Finally I pushed the needle in. Man, I didn't feel anything. Hallelujah........I'm on my way to making eggs for my baby/babies. Well, trying to get the estrogen down first. Ahhh, sigh of relief. Life is so good. (I'm waiting for the headaches)

Oh, I guess you're not supposed to close the top of the Sharps Container until it's full? Well, guess what? I closed it. I had to pry it open with a knife. Those things can be hazardous if you're not careful.

I am totally laughing at your "hazardous" comment :) You crack me up...I did the same thing just messing around with it, but I would never admit it to the general public like you did!! Well, er, um...nevermind...

Hooray for baby-making!!!
