TTC after 35

Jaw dropped

Oh my, when I got home last night I knew my injectibles had been delivered but the box was huge and when I opened I almost passed out, SO MANY NEEDLES! Two ginormous bags of them plus boxes and boxes of medicines and sharps container, alcohol wipes,

It hit home what I am about to do, my husband looked at it all, read the possible side effects (the man who NEVER reads the inserts) and said honey you can't do this twice.

SO even though I knew this was our first injectibles and our last, my DH was firm last night.

So fingers crossed this is my last cycle with help, i don't think I will go back on bcp after this, since I don't seem to O anyway why bother ;) plus there could always be an "oops" BUT this is going to work!!!!
