So it begins (again)...

The nurse called yesterday afternoon and said that everything looked good to start the injections again. The doctor actually did up my dose. I am going to be taking 1 1/2 vials (which is 112 IU) last night and tonight, then I will just do the 1 vial (75 IU) for the next 4 days, and I will go back to the doctor next Thursday.

I did the first injection last night. It hurt, I'm not even going to lie! I don't know if it was because it was more concentrated, or because I forgot since last month how they felt. But it definitely hurt. It's funny though - because I know tonight when I do it again, I won't think of the pain, I'll just think of what this could (hopefully!!) result in!

I went on a walk with a friend yesterday... this girl has 3 kids, and has had exactly 0 problems having them. It makes me sad, but at the same time I have to look at the positives (if I don't I would go into serious depression!) They got pregnant while they were still in college - they were completely broke. She thought they would have to put the baby up for adoption because she couldn't see how they would manage! The Mr. and I have "planned" when to start trying for a baby. So before I even got off the pill, (ha! what a joke, right?!) we were ready financially for a child. Since it hasn't happened, we have just been saving the whole time. It is very comforting to know we have a nest egg for when we DO get pregnant.

I just keep faith that we will have a baby, and when we do it will be in God's perfect time! And we will be able to look back on everything and say, See that's why everything happened the way it did!

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. (Philippians 4:6)


  1. I agree with looking back with understanding - there have been so many things in our life that we found so challenging and frustrating but looking back I wouldn't change anything. Funny how that works, huh? It's always difficult to accept in the present though. Good luck with the injections!

  2. We all know somebody who seems to have it made. I keep wishing DH and I had started TTC right away when I was 20 and had nice fresh younger eggs! But of course, things would have been very different than what they are.. so I guess we just have to all be thankful for the plan we have taken.

    Good luck with the injections..


  3. What a beautiful post. I think it's wonderful that you can look at the positives and not focus on (just) the negatives.


  4. Thanks for stopping by my blog! I wish you the best of luck with this cycle!

  5. I hope the injections work for you this cycle and that you get a positive. It's good that you can identify the positives of not getting pregnant early like your friend. Good luck!

  6. It's good to be in a position of financial security - I definitely see that as a plus. Are the injections subcutaneous (sp?) or in the muscle itself?

  7. No it isn't into the muscle - I do it in my stomach.
