Yesterday I had my first FSH shot at home for IUI. I was soooo nervous. We had stake conference & sat with Brittany & Matt. Then we went home & had a lazy afternoon, taking a nap, putting up our Christmas decorations, & making breadsticks to take for family dinner.
We went to Brittany & Matt's for dinner, the first family dinner at their new house! Matt made homeade ravioli & britt made homeade marinara sauce & peanut butter brownies. Mom, Dad, Cody, & the boys came too. Everything was soooo good, it felt like we were eating in a restaurant! My favorite thing about living near family is having Sunday dinners together. It is so fun to all visit together, talk, & play games. Everyone in our family is amazing at cooking so the dinner is always sooo good!
After dinner Britt & I played apples to apples with the boys & Britt & I got hardly any points because the boys all laughed so hard at weird cards while we thought ours were so funny, haha! Then Nate went to Brooke & Cody's to get a numbing cream that Brooke had gotten me. I put in on the area I would have the shot & then we waited for 45 mins for it to work & Britt & I talked to Melissa on the phone. If only Melissa & Ally could move to AZ to, that would be so awesome!
Then Britt did the shot & she did such a good job. Nate held my hand & talked to me to distract me, & then it was over! I had been so nervous for so long & it wasn't even bad!! I am so grateful to have such an amazing family. For Brooke to think of me & get me the cream & for Britt & Brooke to help give me the shots. & of course for Nate for always being there for me & helping me. & for Melissa for answering my many questions. & for my mom & dad & ally for always praying for me. & for my in-laws, always praying & thinking of us & putting our name on the temple roll. We are so blessed & have so many people watching out for us.
I have 2 more FSH shots in the next few days & then go in for an ultrasound on Thursday to see when I will need to do the trigger shot & the other FSH shots. I am nervous but also so excited thinking that we could get pregnant this month!!! That would be such an incredible, amazing miracle. We will continue to have faith & hope & trust in the Lord no matter what.
