Hubby did the first PIO shot last night.  I heated up my butt with a heating pad and he slightly heated the oil.  I laid on the bed while he gathered the courage.  The funny thing is, I don’t have a needle phobia, but hubby does….so he had been dreading that shot since our initial IVF consult.  His hands were shaking so bad when he went to inject that he had to stop and gather his wits to be able to go through with it.  It didn’t hurt at all, just a little prick which wasn’t nearly as painful as some of the blood draws I’ve had lately.  I honestly had to check that he had it in there.  He injected and pulled it out and then I sat on a heating pad and watched the opening Beijing ceremonies.  I don’t have any pain today, so I think we did a good job!!  So far so good on that one.

However, he is leaving late next week to go away for 3 weeks, so I don’t know what to do about that.  I told the nurse that I was going to do it myself and she didn’t like that idea.  And I don’t have a needle phobia, but that needle IS fucking HUGE, so I think that the fact that I didn’t have to see it last night helped immensely.  I’m just not sure I can jab 2 inches of metal into myself.    So I’ll have to figure out my options….
