PROGESTERONE SHOTS WITH NURSE NICK

The progesterone shots with Nick are hilarious. We have a little ritual that we go through in order for it to work. I lay down on my side on the floor. (I switch cheeks every other day for the shot in my buttocks.) With the syringe all prepared, he uses the technique to find the correct area. Usually his hands are freezing cold. (That’s some useless information for you!)

Once he uses an alcohol wipe to clean the area, he asks, “Are you ready?” I say, “yes” and then proceeded to laugh hysterically. He’ll ask again, and if I don’t laugh, then he usually laughs. We do this about 3 or 4 times, then he finally pokes the needle in and massages the area while he’s injecting the oil. I guess we just need to get that nervousness out of our systems. It usually doesn’t hurt but it depends upon the day. The key is to jab the needle in like a dart because if you go too slow, that’s when it stings horribly.

Oh, gotta go, it’s 8:30pm. Time for my progesterone shot with Nurse Nick. Let the nervous laughter begin…
