  • saladflambe  I've got feet issues (nueroma thing) and am not supposed to go barefoot. So even though I LOVE wearing socks only around the house, I tend to have 'inside shoes' to wear around the house if I'm gonna be doing more than lounging around (i.e. cleaning, baking, etc.)

  • @dpchickens inside shoes or wiping your shoes off with lysol wipes is also acceptable. I'm just recovering from severe tendonitis in my feet as well and had to wear my hokas in the house too.

  • I hope nobody hates me for this UO 😬

    All the IVF and FET injections ARE A PIECE OF CAKE. Everybody talks about how the Menopur burns during the IVF cycle and I'm like... This is just sorta uncomfortable. I thought the burn would feel a LOT warmer. Same with the PIO - people talk about how it's a struggle to inject like their thumbs hurt immensely and yeah, took me some effort this morning, but I'm not going to be dreading having to do it for weeks and no my thumb doesn't hurt.

    I hope this is a positive message for anyone who expects the worst when they go through the process. If you set yourself up right (like warming up the PIO with your body heat, using ice on the spot before injecting) all the injections can be a walk in the park.

  • I also dislike shoes in the house, but have to wear my "house Crocs" because I'm prone to plantar fasciitis. MH however absolutely refuses to ever be barefoot. Hates it with a passion. Will never remove his shoes. I gave up on that fight a long time ago, he just has to vacuum more often.

    My UO:

    Condiments are a no except for hot sauce

    @saladflambe we let our dogs sleep in the bed, never had a problem before but since we've had a backyard with the worst grass and a lot of dirt, they've been getting so dirty and now I wish they had their own beds but I feel bad because they love our bed and snuggles :#

    Also I don't wear shoes in my house unless i'm going directly from the front to the backyard but growing up whenever we would go to family gatherings everyone would keep their shoes on especially if everyone was dressed nice and now I know that is a rarity.

  • @saladflambe I like your style! Outside shoes coming into the house is disgusting! This is a constant battle between MH & me. 

    @inthewoods23 ;

    I will admit, my stomach subcutaneous ones hurt & burned so I used to ice before & after. But after experiencing the pain of self-injecting PIO into my muscle I now just do my stomach ones straight, no chaser. *All the women complaining in my online Lovenox group look like wimps to me now.*
    But these PIO bruises & knots on my backside?! They’ve been hurting for months & the bruises barely start to heal before it’s time for another round.😩 (Also, heat is recommended for PIO, not ice, because it makes it harder to inject.) I hope it continues to be cake for you! 
    saladflambe
  • @keikilove 😂 I feel bruised now being at the end of the day but it's just a knot. And yes you are totally right about using heat instead of ice! Reminds me of the old samples of PIO and estradiol valerate that they use for injection teaching - it had the viscosity of molasses. Yikes lol.

    Maybe I don't find it all that bad because my expectation was a lot worse. Like I said, I was expecting the Menopur to feel VERY hot, like "ow I touch a hot burner on the stove" hot. Felt more like someone jabbing their finger into my stomach. YMMV depending on your pain tolerance I suppose!

  • @mindyb2019 I have one "men" and one "women" restroom at my job but they are both single-use only and they're pretty much the same, so whenever I see a guest waiting for a while I'm like just go in the other one! I don't even know why they are labeled, they should really just be unisex.

  • **Lurking because clearly I suck at staying away from you ladies

    @mvt2003 I went to the NKOTBSB concert at Fenway park a while back (the one when it poured and they all took their shirts off and did slip n' slide down the catwalk *drool*), and we totally took over the men's room.  Except it backfired because we didn't realize beforehand that the men's room there only has like 4 stalls and the rest is all urinals, so it didn't really help us.  Every once in a while, a man who had been forced to come by his wife or girlfriend came in, laughed at us all standing there waiting for stalls, peed in the urinal and left.  Effing penises.  So unfair.

  • @shamrocandroll I WAS THERE TOO OMG!!!!! I've been to see NKOTB at Fenway twice, and it poured both times. The NKOTBSB one was better because it was just straight rain and they all just went with it (yum!) but the more recent one was the one with Boyz 2 Men and Paula Abdul and it was thunder and lightning. They evacuated the field for a while and cut Paula Abdul's set entirely (not like anyone really cared though!). I was so freaking happy they did the Garden again this year, I feel like their Fenway concerts are cursed for me!

    @inthewoods23 I take back my swagger-y comments where I said people are acting like wimps about the subcutaneous shots that don’t bother me anymore.😩Well, I rushed doing one because I was in a public bathroom & people were waiting for the stall. No ice because “I’m tough now”. Ummm NO.  Holy sh*te! It hurt like hell & got a HUGE lump & an ugly bluish hematoma underneath. Now I’m scolding myself like:

    @inthewoods23 Of course the painful bruising happened within <24 hours of me making my snide comment lol. Karma!
    *PS: I promise promise promise this is NOT a sideways or underhanded commentary on your own ease with the shots. When you said it was easy for you I instantly thought of a gif that you often post that I love, & that you are embodying 100% with your baller-shot caller-bravery.😄

    The PIO is making me feel a bit sore so now I'm sorta like - ok these do kinda suck, how am I supposed to do this for weeks?? 😂 but we gotta get ourselves through it! We CAN do it!! Everyone just needs to find what makes the shots most comfortable for them 🙂

    +1 to having a Joey doll. 

    I will do injections if needed, but I know they won’t feel like nothing. I have a blood disorder and even though I’ve been jabbed a million times with needles, I feel them every time and have to look away because they hurt. The rhogam shot is the worst!! I’ve had 8 needles of Novocaine before at the dentist and have a low pain tolerance for some reason. When I was told I could do baby aspirin instead of Lovenox, I definitely did a happy dance.
    It's funny how it's the little things in life that mean the most...not where you live, or what you drive, or the price tag on your clothes... There's no dollar sign on a piece of mind, this I've come to know! *ZBB*
