Woohoo! I did it! I successfully jabbed myself in the butt with a needle!
I prepped the syringe, stood in front of the mirror, and found the spot where I wanted to inject. It took me a few minutes to psych myself up, but after a few deep breaths I just pushed the needle in! It was fairly difficult to push the plunger in. That PIO, even when it’s warmed up, is so hard to push through! Plus, I’m sure my lumpy, swollen, hard butt cheeks don’t help matters much.
Anyway, I did it! Three more times to go before my nurse – er, husband – is back to help.
Now we just need that Thursday beta to be super high. K, girls? K, thanks. I scheduled an acupuncture session for Wednesday night to help keep me calm.
