Let the FUN begin!

 Needles, needles and MORE needles! 

I am proud to announce that I started my meds and injections this past Friday September 16th.  All is well and so far I feel great.  My daily schedule consists of 10 units of Lupron (injection)  and .75mg of Dexamethazone.  In the evening I take a birth control along with a prenatal vitamin.  

The first injection was given by my wonderfully supportive husband Randy, who said he has sympathy pains for me already!  He suggested that if I inject myself, there would be less pain.  With that said, the next morning I psyched myself up and was able to give myself that dreaded shot.  I have to say, he was right about the pain, I barely felt a thing!

Thank you to everyone out there who has been praying for our families.  I personally can feel the affects of all our prayer warriors!  God is showing his amazing grace once again!  

Tentative embryo transfer will be Wednesday October 19th, which happens to be Rudy's (the intended father) Birthday.  There will be more than one reason to celebrate such a joyous day!

"I sought the Lord, and he answered me, and delivered me from all my fears." (Psalm 34:4)

Yay!! The meds are the stinky part, but oh so important. It'll be over before you know it!! Here we are at 37 weeks and it feels I was just injecting myself yesterday. Good luck to you both! Can't wait to follow your journey!!!
