The photo kind of sums up my life right now. I just ordered a bunch of stuff from bodybuilding.com, I bought new lifting gloves (on clearance at Target!), then there's my prenatal gummy vitamins and the sharps container to hold all my discarded meds stuff for the IUI I just started. See, on one side I'm trying to take control of my body and transform it into something I love and on the other side, I'm letting medicine take it over and help me create something I've been having trouble creating on my own (with my husband) not matter how much love I have for it. So, like I said, a lot going on. Part of me, doesn't want to push too hard in the gym, for fear that it will hurt my chances of getting pregnant, but I also want to make sure I'm healthy enough to create and carry a healthy baby for 40 weeks. I go back to the doctor on Tuesday (blood work and ultrasounds every other day for about a week and a half!) so hopefully I'll see a doctor for more than 3 minutes this time and get a chance to ask about the weight lifting. Until then, I'm starting Livefit back up tomorrow (I should be at week 10, but I think I'm going to start with week 8 since I've been off a few weeks) and I'm going to keep my weights on the lighter side for now. I'm thinking heavy weights won't actually hurt until I'm pregnant, but I don't want to take any chances!
I gave myself my first shot last night and let me tell you, that video could stand to go a little slower! I had to keep rewinding. I'm pretty sure I lost some of the medicine trying to get an air bubble out and I'm pretty sure the air bubble never got out. But, I'm still alive so, I guess I didn't screw up too much. I'm hoping it gets easier! The actual shot barely hurt. I'm used to needles, spent more time than most in a hospital, but I still wasn't sure about giving myself shots. Definitely not as bad as giving yourself a bikini wax! :)
