The final countdown

We are now 2 days away from beginning the shots to tell her body to start producing eggs for harvesting. When the doctor said I get to stick her in the butt every night for 10 days, this was not what I had in mind.

But we are both excited, nervous and trying to maintain a cautioned hopeful attitude with moderate success. Our doctors are using a combination of Bravelle and Menopur. I get to be the mad scientist mixing the cocktail shot. I do hope it isn’t too painful for her, or this is going to be a long 10 days. I may ask the nurse on Friday for a practice shot on myself, that way I know what she is dealing with.

Not helping my wife’s nerves is the fact the air conditioner at her work is out and the company is being very slow about fixing it. It’s been a rough journey so far, I guess it was silly of me to think it would get easier now.
