"Shot to the heart" - er no

Tonight I get my big bee sting shot in the arse at 11:30PM. Ack! The belly shots have been bearable (mostly), but I've been a little apprehensive about this one.

(BTW: 6 follicles for those of you keeping score. Ranging in size from 16-22.)

Maybe if I sing Jon Bon Jovi's "You give love a bad name" song (in my head), it will help. I can hear it now "Shot to the butt, and you're to blame..." Hmmm, maybe giggling while a needle is coming towards me isn't such a hot idea. Oh great. Now I'm going to have a giggle attack. Those always come at the worst possible moment.

Wish me luck!

UPDATE: It was a shot in the belly and it was easier than one of the daily shots I had been getting. Easy-peasy. I had gotten myself so worried over the butt-shot from a IVF memoir book I read (said it was like bees stinging you all over your body and that one woman punched her husband in the nose after receiving it), that the idea of it was 100x worse than the reality. I did manage to embarrass myself by laying on my belly ready to expose my bum when the nurse kindly told me to turn over. Very typical of me. My husband grinning ear to ear. :-)


  1. Good luck, you will be fine!! Easy peasy!

  2. It was easy-peasy! And not in the bum - YAY!

    1. Good! They really are not a big deal! GL at ER. Can't wait to hear how it goes.

    2. Good Luck with the retrieval!! You are almost there!!

  3. Thinking of you! I hope everything went smoothly and all the eggs have turned to embryos now! Keep us posted!

  4. Thinking of you... I hope everything went well and you got plenty of nice eggs. xo
