My hiney hurts! In medicated cycles, women need progesterone support. Dr. Allemand has me on shots, which are intramuscular (hiney). The progesterone-in-oil injection doesn't hurt as much when it's administered, rather it's the aftermath. On Saturday and Sunday, Brandon gave me 1cc. Last night we had to increase my dosage to 2cc. This medicine is SUPER thick! B gives me a hiney massage afterward to make sure the medicine moves around and doesn't collect in one spot. My booty is sore when I'm walking, and I feel the pressure from my pants! It's not terrible, but I can definitely tell that I'll have what others before me have described as the "lumpy butt."
Also, thanks to the progesterone-in-oil injections, my chest is super sensitive! It's not that bad, I'll take a little pain any day to get my body ready for my baby(ies). ;-)
We are so close. I have nothing but positive thoughts about this cycle. Brandon and I are planning to go out for a celebratory lunch after our transfer on Thursday. Also, we've been discussing ideas about how we're going to tell everyone after we get our good news! We are only expecting good news.
Thank you for all of the kind thoughts, well wishes, prayers, and support. We're going to need it to get through this two-week-wait!
