The meds, syringes and anaphylactic kit(in case I have an allergic reaction to it) all came by Fed Ex yesterday. The syringe has a really small needle, which is great, unfortunately the progesterone is mixed with an oil, so it is really really really thick. It took a good 30 seconds once the needle was in my hip for the nurse to inject all the meds. After the first 10 seconds it started to burn. After the next 10 seconds it really stung.
It's been about an hour since I got the shot, and I don't feel too bad, my hip's just a little sore. But I will deal with whatever I have to in order to avoid another NICU stay and have a full-term baby boy!
1 down...18 more to go!
I'm going to countdown my shots on the right side of my blog.
