Ready, set, go...

June 13, 2013


Ok so here we go, ready or not. Yesterday I went in for another ultrasound and got the call today that I was post ovulatory and could begin Lupron injections. I am a pretty tough cookie, but the thought of sticking myself everyday is something less than desired. I was sent home yesterday with a goodie bag of needles, the medication,my very own sharp container and alcohol wipes. The shot is administered once daily into the stomach. I always knew that extra padding in my middle would serve a purpose one day!!! After several warm-up back and forth practice shot motions I was able to inject my stomach and administer the medication. One down, many more to go....


  1. Hi Colleen! My name is Shannon and I am a college friend of Erica's. I have been through some of the injections myself and know how you feel. Ice helps before and after. It will become less weird. and it will be SO worth it!! Though our circumstances are different, if you ever need to talk to someone who has been on the fertility treatment train, let me know, Erica can connect us.

    best wishes and warm sticky baby thoughts to you and your GC!

  2. Let's get this started! You are gonna do great!!
