After that was over, I went over and met with a nurse so she could show me how to do the Lupron shots. She was going to do the first one for me, but I decided to do it myself. I am pretty brave, now that I've done three cycles of Follistim. Giving myself a shot is a piece of cake! Although if I have to do those progesterone shots I WILL BE SCARED! Those needles are thick and I've read that they hurt!
My next appointment is December 3. I go in for a ultrasound and to get the rest of my meds. I believe I'm just doing Follistim to start, but I can be mistaken. I am praying that's all. I feel comfortable with that one, the needles are so small and don't hurt a bit. Its just getting past the whole fear of actually sticking yourself. Once you do it your good to go!
After the doctors, I literally baked all day! It was so much fun! I turned on the Christmas music, put on an apron, and became domesticated. I made the pumpkin cinnamon rolls (literally just took them out of the oven!) and they look AMAZING, pumpkin cupcakes with cream cheese frosting (for the kids)(I was in the baking mood and added that one to the list), and the cranberry sauce. Tomorrow all I need to do now is make the brussel sprouts and artichoke dip, which I forgot to add to the recipes yesterday! Its amazing here it is...
1 c. mayo
1 c. Parmesan
2 14 oz cans artichoke hearts, chopped
2 cloves garlic minced
2 4 oz cans Chile's
1 4oz can jalapenos
mix together and bake at 350 until its golden on top, about 20 - 25 min. Enjoy with tortilla or pita chips!
Its always a hit! Enjoy and Happy Thanksgiving!
