Tonight's Progesterone Injection

I must say that this will forever be one of my 
most memorable injections...  

I am so thankful to have sweet friends who give me my shots when Brandon's away.  

*Sorry for the pictures of my hiney, but it comes along with infertility territory!*

Kendra instructing Joy on how to give an intramuscular shot (in the hiney, obviously)

Kendra instructing Joy some more

Joy injecting me after saying, "Holy Crap" and not realizing that she had to plunge the entire needle in my hiney!

Thank you, Joy and Kendra!  
They say it takes a village to raise a child... our faith family has went above and beyond already.

    1. We had a small audience! It was hilarious!! =) I forgot to add that Joy even rubbed my hiney afterward so the progesterone wouldn't pool! Fun times!!

  2. I remember that day, hope all goes well!

  3. The third pic is my fav bc the mirror reflection looks as though you were praying! With "Holy Crap" friends it may be a good idea! Lol!

    1. Hah! I was. =) Brandon and I have prayed over EACH and EVERY shot during this process. I was asking God to used the shot to help snuggle my babies in and keep them warm. =D

  4. haha I was thinking the same thing with that "it takes a village" Glad you have so many supportive people in your life :)

  5. That's classic. In a public toilet too! Hahaha well done ladies.

    1. We were at church so at least I knew all of the people walking in! =)

  6. Love this for so many reasons! Glad you have some awesome supporters!

  7. In the beginning I was so excited to get to "shoot you in the butt"! (who can ever really say they shot their friend in the butt and lived to tell about it?!) But then when I realized that WHOLE needle had to go all the way in, my heart hurt for you! This card-carrying member of Team Baby Sneakers is with you all the way!!!!

  8. Haha! I love that you posted pics! It seems to make the PIO shots a bit less painful, if that's possible. So happy for you that you have such wonderful, trusting, caring people in your life to help you with this. Not sure I have any girlfriends brave enough to give me a shot in my tushie...actually, now that I think about it, I probably do. :)
