I "survived"....

I had my very first "injection" tonight!!! I must say I am very proud of myself, not once did I get nervous and not once did I flinch (besides me covering my eyes...). Other than my eye covering I did great...and to be 100% honest it wasn't bad at all (I know, I know...you all told me that and you all were right!!!) I could barely even feel it...Zach was a bit nervous, but he did amazing!!!! Our friend Matt is staying with us until Wednesday, he took some pics for us to remember this date forever...unfortunately he totally focused on my chubby little belly and none of my face or Zach's face, so enjoy the pics but ignore the fatty belly.... :)


MY PEN

Zach is prepping my belly...

Gettin' a good ol' grip of my fat...ha!

And it's IN!

Injecting the meds...

and...."I SURVIVED"

Our sweet friend Matt knew that I would need a little encouragement to get me through this so he stopped by and surprised me with a Sundae; let me just say that it was the perfect encouragement and so delicious! :)

I took 75mi tonight, I will take 75 tomorrow and 75 again on Wednesday. Wednesday I will go in for estridial blood work and Thursday I will be making my way to Austin as Dr. S said he needs to see me Thursday vs. me going to Waco. I have a late appt (5:15pm to be exact) so that I do not have to miss any work. I am excited to see what this journey brings us!!! THANK YOU AGAIN FOR ALL YOUR SUPPORT!!!! :)

I'm with you!! Make the husband do it!! I had to have insulin shots during my last pregnancy due to gestational diabetes. I just could not do it. My husband got up every morning before I had to go to work and gave me my shot because I refused to give it to myself. I just could not force that needle into my leg. Husbands are good for some things every now and again I guess. Lol..j/k..my husband is pretty good most of the time!! Good luck and keep us updated!!

Exciting! If your belly starts getting sore due to the injections/bruises put a piece of ice on the spot where you are planning to give the shot that night (only seconds before injecting), and I promise you will feel no pain. I am praying that this is the beginning to a new chapter in your lives.

Good job girl your awesome and hubby is too of course :)

Sundae is just what the doctor ordered after injections! In fact they should be mandatory :)

The Simmons Family said...

Way to go Tiff! I PRAY this works for you. Oh, and where is this so called chub on your tummy? I'll trade you. :)

Good luck with the next few shots.

Veronica said...

Yay! I am so excited. You made me laugh when you talked about your belly! Dude...you have no clue what fat is if you think you have a chubby belly, LOL!

Can't wait until we see pics of your growing belly! Love ya lots!

Melody said...

Wow, if you are fat, I must be like elephant size! You did great! I'm excited that you have something new this time and more hope than ever. Everything is going to turn out well! Now get prepared for morning sickness! Or not, I didn't have any. But, like Kami, I wished I had because I would have known my baby was ok. Love you Tiffy! (GOOD JOB ZACH)!!

Lisa said...

I'm so glad that it went well, and wasn't as bad as you thought it would be :) I was the same way when I had to give my son his first shot,of course my situation is not the same as yours, but I know what you mean about the first shot... Can't wait to read more about your progress! God Bless

Anna said...

Woo hoo! You gotta make a muscle-man pose after the shot to show your toughness. You know, like a wrestler. And say "RRRAAAAAAWWWWWRRRR" while you do it. LOL
