1 Down 2 to Go

The first shot is done, only 2 more to go!  I'm trying to think positive but that is so hard to do.  The thought of spending the next 90 days in menopause is enough to drive a girl to eat cake and ice cream.  I actually had a piece of cake today at work.  It cheered me up for about the amount of time it took to eat it.  I'm having Chinese food for dinner so maybe a little more comfort food will do the job.

Back to the huge 2 inch needle on the shot - yikes it hurt!  Of course my DH is saying don't clinch and what did I do?  Clinched up!  How can you control that?  My mind is sending signals to my body is saying "don't do this".   I guess I forgot how painful an intramuscular shot can be.  My hat goes off to all the girls who do intramuscular progesterone shots.  All my progesterone has been vaginal suppositories.  I was limping around last night and my booty still hurts today.  I think I will use that and the rain for the reason I didn't go for a run or get on the elliptical when I got home from work.

Thanks to everyone for all the lovely comments this week.  I really needed all those virtual hugs and real hugs from my in-real life friends. 


  1. Here's one way to think of the positive side of this. You won't have to go through the inconvenience of AF with the medical menopause. I used to think AF was an inconvenience that was worth it to experience the miracle of life. Now that we have IF, I just think it is a cruel joke to play.


  2. Dear Peaches-
    Sorry you have to go thru another 3 months of Lupron-thoughts/prayers with you!
    I actually have my first EFT biopsy Monday...hoping for the best-but, nervous.

  3. I have said it many times, but women who are able to give themselves shots are seriously awesome! I'm not sure I could do it... (but I would rather do it myself than have my husband do it if it comes to that in the future)

    I hope the next two shots go easily.
