First of all, thank you all so much for all of the support and advice!
DH and I got home from his parents house around 1 am, finally fell asleep around 2am. Bella woke me up at 6:15 am, so I went to the bathroom, tried to fall back asleep, then she woke me up at 6:53 am right before my alarm was going to go off for the 7:00 am injection.
I got it all drawn up and ready to go; it was just like the Repronex injections except I didn't have to mix anything which was really nice.
Once I was ready to stick myself, I got all wussy and kept staring at it. Then...and I couldn't make this up, Bella spit out a tooth. I picked it up, then stuck myself. I barely felt the shot go in and I pushed the plunger, then pulled out the needle 1/2 way and waited 5 seconds like I was instructed. I even put on the bandaid but I don't know if I even got it on the injection site. I can't believe I was so scared of it.
So Bella's tooth. I wasn't sure if she broke it or if it fell out naturally or what. Later today she spit out another one. She refuses to let us look in her mouth so we can only hope she is losing baby teeth. I'll call the vet on Monday.
Otherwise, the shot kinda itched afterwards and I felt nauseous when we got up later, but I'm fine and these should be easy. But it is day one, so we'll see. Stims start in less than two weeks!
