This afternoon, after a morning full of energetic kindergartners, I came home to find a FedEx package waiting for me. OOOO. What could it be? I didn't remember ordering anything. What a nice surprise. Well, my excitement quickly faded. I opened the package only to find this....An envelope full of shots.
Shots? you ask yourself. Yes, shots. And not the "good" kind as in Tequila, but the kind that will cause me pain ( I suppose the other kind of shots cause pain too).
Let me fill you in. Since Jaxon was a preemie (6 weeks) my OB would like to prevent another pre-term baby. Why? Jaxon has turned out just fine thank you very much. But as the say, "Each day spent in the womb is better than a day in the NICU". So, I must have progestrone shots given to me weekly starting next week until December 19. FIVE months people!
Can't say I'm looking forward to that. Brian is all too willing to give me the shot. Hmmmm. Luckily, my insurance covers the cost of a nurse coming to my house to inject me. We'll see how that goes. I'm less likely to curse at her than I would be to Brian and she's less likely to get pleasure from it as Brian may.
That says 22g needle. Not sure how big that is?
Looks pretty big to me
We'll see how this goes. I'll keep you posted.
