We got our progesterone value today, and it is still holding strong at 50 ng/ml! Which means (drum roll please) that yesterday was the last day that I had to take my booty shot! I am beyond excited right now. Not taking those shots really is like the end of an era. No more sharp stabs of pain, ice burns, or having to discipline your three year old because he is jumping on the bed while your husband is trying to control the inch and half needle that is sticking out of your ass. I can’t say that I will miss the track marks or incessant itchiness over the injection sites either. And hopefully that radiating lower back pain that my husband inadvertently gave me by hitting a nerve will finally go away. Yes, I am nervous about stopping the medication, but now after 14 weeks of receiving a shot in the butt every night- I mostly feel relieved. So, I’d just like to say, thank you butt. Thank you for enduring all of this craziness. I owe you big time 🙂
