Shot in the buttocks

So yesterday I made yet another trip to Ft. Wayne, b/c it was day 36 and still no period. I know you are all thinking you are pregnant, but of course not, test was negative. So since I still hadn't they had to give me 2 shots to make it start. Walked in, nurse said drop your pants, I think that Lane was probably jealous, b/c it wasn't him telling me to do that. Lol!! Will probably take effect in the next few days. They said the Lupron must really be working good on my sytem, b/c it has completely shut me down. So I got a shot in each cheek. One of progesterone and another of oil and YOUCH let me tell ya they weren't to bad at first, but then a little later was I sore. Especially trying to lay on my back last night. So let's hope this works soon so we can get this show on the road. I hate waiting!!!!!

So this is our dog Ruger. He is one spoiled dog I tell ya!!! I feel sorry for him whenever we have a baby, b/c he won't know what to do when he isn't the center of attention. We rescued him when he was just a puppy. Yes his is a pit bull, but I promise the nicest one you will ever meet. He loves playing with our neighbor kids and his best friend is a toy poodle named Oscar. He goes on car rides whenever he can and absolutely loves to swim.
Yes this is really how he sleeps. Pathetic!!

Him and Oscar at Christmas.

He is a little naughty sometimes!!

But I love this little guy!!

So the side effects from the medication are definitely hitting me. I obviously don't know what morning sickness is like, but I am pretty sure I have it everyday around 2 in the afternoon. I get afternoon sickness instead, which is ok, b/c then I can work all day and feel good until it is about time to go home in which I just go home and sleep. I get really nauseous(haven't actually gotten sick yet, b/c I will do WHATEVER to keep from doing that) dizzy and then the muscle cramping is awful. Guess I won't get much of the weight gain, b/c I don't want to eat, score for me:) I was laying around the other day saying what in the world am I doing to myself and Lane said we are only a few days into this. I know I said and I could have to do this up to 5 more times if it doesn't work. I can't even imagine. Lord please let it work on the first try!!! Thanks everyone for all your wonderful comments and for following this more to come......

Lupron-Day 1

So this will be my first of my best girl friends told me I should start this so here it goes. For most of you reading this you know for the last 3 years Lane and I have been trying to get pregnant with no success. We did a bunch of fertility testing a year ago and nothing happened and today we start our in-vitro process. Woo hooo!! You may ask what this means, well daily shots of hormones(I apologize now Lane), bloodwork, ultrasounds and surgery to come. Doesn't that sound pleasant? It will all be worth it in the end though if it works. Lupron is the medication I started today and I haven't done this before so hopefully the side effects won't hit me to hard. Headache, vomiting, swelling, rapid weight gain, dizziness and many more wonderful things. Wow I am so excited about all of those. So anyone else reading this that has been through this before feel free to give me any advice or pointers you may have. And I will try not to be to graphic:) Enjoy!!
