Tick Tock - Random Stuff - Anything Else Gonna Happen?

Three topics for this post - I'll try to keep them short:

1. Less than 48 hours till I stick myself with a needle and inject 20 units of Lupron into my non-abs. In a parallel way, millions, nay, billions of children are also counting down the hours in anticipation of Christmas Day and the gift opening that will occur. It's nice to look forward to Christmas morning again. It's been a long time. Nurse Jackie told me I could prep all of my injections ahead of time and stick them in the fridge so that I don't have to mess around with them at 7:00 am every day. Thoughts on this? It doesn't seem too hard to draw up some Lupron, wipe a spot, stick myself, and throw away the needle in my cool red biohazard container. Has anyone pre-prepared their Lupron injections?

2. I watched the season finale of sixteen and pregn.ant this week. You know it took me till probably this past spring to be able to watch any of that stuff, tee.n, etc. Now I'm practically addicted to it. Call me Captain Masochist. While I sit and judge the fertile kiddos, I rub salt in my wounds of jealousy. Sick, no? But the season finale has affected me so I decided to follow that young lady's blog (one she's had since she found out she was pregnant way back in May or June of 2009. It'll be on my blog roll if you want to check it out. I won't say how it's affected me, just that I want to see what happens in her life.

3. And finally, I'm starting to feel a bit paranoid. I know of the theory that bad things come in "threes". Last week: financial hiccup. Sunday: dryer quits. Other than my cat(s) insistence on peeing everywhere and once in awhile we find a pile of puke in the house....we're looking for the third "bad" thing to happen so we can get it over with. I don't want a cycle cancellation or bfn to bet the third thing, you know? I bruised my knee last Saturday night...I wonder if that'll count? DH scraped his finger last night at Walmart. On some cardboard. Yeah, what a lawsuit waiting to happen. *chuckle*. He acted like his finger was going to fall off. He has a cold and acts like he's gonna die. Any of these qualify? I keep looking over my dang shoulder. I had a dream/nightmare last night that our Traverse got totaled. I hope that doesn't happen. I better drive safely over the next week while DH is off (school break).


43 hours and 34 minutes.

I know I'm probably the last person you want advice from but in my experience. I was nervous about the shots the first week then it just kind became habit and routine. You can count my BFN as the third thing so you've got a fresh start. Enjoy your Christmas morning!

Bad things don't come in threes. Good things don't come to those who wait. Karma's a bitch, but only because she doesn't work like she's supposed to. So breathe out :)

I never pre-prepared my injections because they're pretty easy and quick to do. I can see how it might be helpful if you're super busy or have trouble getting up early though.

I know that feeling like something bad is going to happen! That impending doom feeling. I think it's completely normal to feel that way. It's such a nerve-wracking process. Try not to worry hun (easier said than done!)

I hope things go as smoothly as possible for you! I'm excited for you!

Dear Christa,

What a time to start your cycle and injections! I can see how exciting this can be. You said it well. I really hope that things go well with this cycle for you and there is the light at the end of the tunnel. As for me, i am still in the dark. Still no idea when I will have mine. Speaking of bad things coming in three, it sounds like that you have had them all, and now the time for good things that come in many. I am crossing my finger for you. Merry Christmas!
