Are you ready for this, because I wasn't

As promised my meds arrived and my dear husband has begun injecting me every evening. Yes, you read that right I'm a big baby and am making my needle-phobic husband do my injections. I'm going with the philosophy that this will help him overcome his needle-phobia, so it's a win-win.

Currently I take 10 units of Lupron daily. Leuprolide acts as an agonist at pituitary GnRH receptors. By interrupting the normal pulsatile stimulation and the desensitization of the GnRH receptors; it indirectly down regulates the secretion of gonadotropins luteinizing hormone (LH) and follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) leading to hypogonadism and thus a dramatic reduction in estradiol and testosterone levels in both sexes. Totes stole that from Wikipedia. In a nut shell the Lupron supresses my pituitary glad and prevents my from ovulating.

Now as promised THE BOX.............

Those four bags in front? Yeah all needles. Notice I even have my own hospital grade sharps container. This is serious business. Not that any of you thought it was a joke before, but holy Hell.

I also think I'm going to start a countdown to implantation like some people do for their due date or other major life events,

We are T-minus 27 days to implantation
