I just finished watching my "training" video for doing the injections. Dude...so easy. I had to do my own insulin injections with my last pregnancy and these are VERY similar. The only one that looks like it MAY cause a little pain is the trigger shot of ovidrel. I may or may not involve the hubs in that one. We'll see how nervous I am at the time.
I've read all the info the RE's office has sent me, and I am READY to get this show on the road! I read the side effects of the Gonal F-RFF pen, and it gave me the dreary list of Breast tenderness, mood swings, bloating, fatigue, pelvic discomfort and possibly cysts. But y'know what?
SIGN ME UP!!
I am so down for all of those things if it means we have a higher chance of getting pregnant.
OK, so I'm sure you guys have heard of Jon and Kate plus 8 right, well maybe all of you knew this bit of info but I certainly didnt....the concieved their sextuplets using an IUI with injectables. I thought they had done IVF. My jaw dropped. And I had to have a little converstion with K. It went like this:
Me: Hooooooney......can I tell you something?
K: Of course you can, whats up?
Me: Ummm, you have to promise not to freak out first!
K:*far more interested now* Ohhhh, thats a bad way to start a conversation.
K: Yes, Sarah I promise. Now whats up?
Me: well, you know that show we watch sometimes with the couple that has 8 children, six concieved at the same time?
K: Uh, yea...Jon and Kate right?
Me: yep, thats them....so..uh...do you know how the came to have the 6 little ones?
K: Nope, how?
*just noooot catching on...*
Me: They used an IUI with injectable meds.....
K: *blank look*
Me: WE are going to do an IUI with injectable medications.....
K: *wide eyed* Oh.
Me: I mean, its a really low chance that we'd have THAT many...but you DO know that it slightly increases our chance for multiples right?
K:*lookin kinda pale* Er...uh...yea. Yea, I know.
Me: Are you ok with that? Like really really ok?
*loooong ass pause....much swallowing*
K: I am. Yes, I am 100% OK with that.
Goddess, I love that man!!
