That Was........

So after I got the official call from my nurse, all systems were a go for triggering Wednesday night. Slight problem, hubby was working and wouldn't be there to give me the shot. At this point in my journey I haven't had to give myself an injection. Would I be able to do it? Would it hurt?
I am by no means afraid of needles, but I always look the other way whenever someone sticks me. It stems back from when I was younger and had surgery on my foot. They had me all numbed up and in a twilight state and I could feel no pain.......until I looked down and saw blood. That was the point that I knew if there was blood it had to hurt. So since then I always just turn my head and let them do their magic with the needle. But this time it was my turn. I had to do the magic with the needle. So how was I going to give the injection and look the other way so that it wouldn't hurt? Not really an option to look the other way when you are jabbing yourself with a needle. So after getting everything preped in the bathroom: Sharps container, needle and alcohol prep.

So I took a deep breath and washed my hands. Used the alcohol prep to get the site ready. Got the air out of the needle, pinched the skin together and quick little jab. In the needle went and OMG!!!! That Was Easy!!! I could totally do that again if I had to....Now I just hope that I don't need to do it again. I guess I will find out in two weeks.
