So after setting a goal of 12 eggs for Declan in his egg hunt, and having him get exactly 12 eggs at the Calvary egg hunt, I also have managed to come up with 12 eggs- in the form of 12 antral follicles, so I am greenlighted for my IVF cycle that got cancelled last month. I started injecting the drugs yesterday. By which I mean Shane started injecting me. I have a few days of that luxury before I have to fly to Chicago without Shane and start injecting myself. They are intramuscular injections, with a lot of fluid and a big old needle. It's no foolin around. I Vagal every time I think about it. Wish me luck. I will keep you updated as to my progress here. I am most interested in how crazy the drugs are going to make me. I will monitor and report daily as follows:
Day 1 Crazy-o-meter Reading (1 - 10) = 1.5
Day 1 Homicidal Impulse Tally = Zero
In other news, here is Declan, appearing for the first time in non-footie pajamas. It's a little heartbreaking for me, he is growing up so fast. But look at those sweet little feet, free at last.
