My Journey as a Gestational Surrogate

My tushy is not happy :( March 27, 2011

Well, tonight my DH had to administer the second Delestrogen shot. From what I understand, the purpose of these shots is to make my uterine lining nice and thick so that the embryo can snuggle up comfortably for 9 months.

I wasn’t scared this time because the first shot went so well. My confidence unfortunately didn’t help me 😦

I used a heating pad to warm my bum before Hubby injected… We’re thinking maybe we weren’t in the perfect spot because I felt the needle going in the whole time. The worst part? These needles aren’t tiny, folks. Think half the length of a pencil and subtract just a smidge and you’ve got the length of the sharp object that has to be stuck, in its entirety, into my rump. Ouch.

Needless to say, my butt isn’t happy tonight and I’ll be sleeping on the opposite side. I just keep reminding myself that every shot will be worth it when I see E & M holding their bambino!

Better luck next time, I hope!

P.S. I’ve included a picture of the needle… See what I mean when I say “Ouch” LOL.
