How did it go?
Well at first I started to feel like I was floating ( hard to explain and very strange). After that I literally zonked out and slept for the remaining 30 minutes. It was glorious. I never fall asleep that quickly. It was peaceful and extremely relaxing. I didn't want to leave the serene room once the nurse came in to pull the needles out. Also, much like when you get a massage I woke up with a very dry throat, I must have released toxins too!
I go again tomorrow afternoon for another session, this time on my abdomen. I am excited and so ready for Thursday!
In other news. I had another blood draw today to check my progesterone and estradiol. My progesterone was apparently a little low. The nurse said its because my body is medicated and isn't producing it naturally on its own. Any progesterone in my body is from the Endometrin suppositories. However since they want as perfect as an environment for transfer they also added the awful PIO ( progesterone in oil) shot! I will now add that to my regimen for the next weeks or months.

Firstly, if you have to do this shot I recommend not looking at how big the needles is for to long. It will scare you and make you hesitate :) Secondly, put an icepack in your pants for a good 15-20 minutes before doing the shot, it completely numbs it and you don't feel the needle go in!! In fact, as I write this I still have the icepack numbing my behind...haha! It already aches, but that's okay...it will all be worth it!
Thursday at 12:15 our sweet babies will be nestled into their new home!
