In a glass dish, 45 mins away

C and I were driving to my Dad's today for a BBQ and I looked at him and said "Our babies are growing in a glass dish, outside my body, 45 mins away from us right." It just really hit me. I'm still memorized by the fact that this medical option is available. My BFF asked me if I thought they would ever be able to conceive and grow a baby to full term outside a womb one day. That is some crazy shit. But I'm sure 40 years ago someone thought that removing eggs from a woman, fertilizing and putting them back was crazy. Something to think about. Hmmmm. An option for those who can't carry their own. Wouldn't that be something.

I started the progesterone shots on Friday. I have to say - not as bad as I thought. I'm vigilant about warming the injection before and my ass before and after and I've been Ok. C is great at doing the injection. No counting, no waiting. I simply drop my draws a bit, bend over and he is at it. Good man.

Tuesday is the day. I can't wait!


  1. Everything crossed for tomorrow! You'll be in my thoughts. Good luck!

  2. How exciting!!!
    I am glad to hear the shots are not that bad. I was scared of the idea, but it seems there is no way to avoid if I want to get back on this saddle. Your news is excellent!
    Fingers crossed for your little babies:)

  3. Sending you good, positive thoughts for tomorrow!!!

  4. I am thinking of you and will be CONSTANTLY tomorrow. Much love always.
