Tired but Lucky

Boy, am I tired! These injections are really starting to do a number on me. The Repronex injection was anything but easy, it was horrible! It hurt the entire time and I woke up feeling like I was hit by a bus on one side of my body. I poked myself 5 times tonight before finding a spot to push it in. I can only imagine how sore I am going to be tomorrow. Getting up at 6 am on a Sunday wont help the situation.

I woke up feeling better than last night. I knew something that would put me in a great mood-my beautiful niece and nephews! There was a ice sculpting fest we decided to check out. Ironically enough, it was 60 degrees here today. Most of the ice sculptures were puddles. I felt bad for the men who traveled from all over USA to show off their skills. We had a blast though. There was face painting, balloon animals, cookies, etc. It was my first big outing with baby Tyler. He was an angel and slept the whole time. We also made a stop to the book store and they helped me pick books for our collection. Being with these kids makes me happier than anything in the world. Okay, they are tied with Tom for first place!

We are planning on coming home from our appointment and laying in bed for a CSI:Miami marathon. Can't wait..

I remember my IVF cycle where I was soooo tired all the time. I don't know if it's the stress and emotions or meds, but man, I sure was tired.

Love the pics. Sooooo cute!!

Isn't a great motivation to think that all these painful shots will soon pay off! Hang in there.

I think all my fat helps with my injections!!! The repronex was fine for me but I only had to inject it twice. I am not looking forward to all the pain. But it will be well worth it for the both of us!!! Good luck honey!
