Yes, I am done with my 17p ALPHAHYDROXY PROGESTERONE SHOTS. Every Sunday evening for the past 17 weeks Brett has given me one, and it's finally over. I was actually pretty lucky though...most women who take these shots get stinging, bruising, and itching at the injection site. But I only had pain once (it was the second shot). In fact, Brett and I had a pretty good system once I gave in and let him just poke me without taking 5 minutes to give him the OK. And he was so nice to take a couple of minutes to push the medicine in slowly (it's mixed in oil, so it's really a thick solution).
So that is another milestone down!!! In 1 day I will be 36 weeks and I feel like I have been pregnant FOREVER!!!!! Seriously...you can't complain unless you had to be on bedrest for at least 5 weeks, see the doctor weekly, take daily meds, take weekly injections, spend a few nights in Labor & Delivery, & have contractions all day everyday. I feel I have earned my right to complain!!!!
On the other hand, I feel so blessed that although it isn't easy, I am able to carry a pregnancy to term. I will try not to complain too much then.
Brett will love this picture!!!! I gave him 2 chances to get a good one, but he was sick that night and not very into it....so this is what we got...HA HA.
