Shoe's on the other foot

Last night after I attempted to give myself the injection and then had to have C do it again, (I swear I will give it to myself before this is over!) C let me stick him!
As I standing there holding my belly and aiming the needle at myself, C was saying "Just do it!" I finally said I couldn't just yet and that he needed to do it. Afterward, he gave this look like I was a big baby. So I said, "OK - here is a needle, stick yourself!" He immediately got a grin on and said "No." See the thought of jabbing a needle into your being isn't as easy as you think. So then I said, "Can I do it to you?" After a second or two of thought, he says yes. So I just stuck him and pulled it out. He smiled and said "good job." Then after a minute he goes to me "That actually hurt a little. Ahhhh, poor baby! Do you want me to get you ice cream or something?" Haha. I'm actually glad that he got to feel a little of what this is like and can relate now. Although he didn't get the burn from the M.enopur!!!

Got blood work this morning to see how I'm progressing.

I can't believe it's about 1 week until the retrieval!!!


  1. That is too funny! I never thought to ask if I could stick him. I think I may have to do that tonight if I get any more giggles. Yay 1 more week!

  2. You crack me up! that's such a sweet story, you are really in this together now!;)
    It took me a while until I was able to push the needle through my skin. I did it first with those tiny needles (like on the pens or on the trigger), that was an easy start.
    Fingers crossed for great bw results and nice progress!
    ER will be here before you know it! Yay!!!

  3. I SO see me and DH doing that. What a good hubby to help you out AND let you stick him!

  4. Girl you are braver then me, I am still so nervous for the coming injections. So excited for your one week wait .;)
