Just a quick update — the appointment went great today, I got my first (very low dose) injection. I expect to start turning into the incredible hulk shortly. Gail got trained up on giving the injections and she was awesome (it wasn’t hard at all). I’ll learn how to do it myself the next couple appointments and then we should be OK on our own.

Gail just very sweetly pointed out that it’s kind of nice she gave me my first shot. She framed it as being like the times we did our inseminations for each other at home, and that we both caught the baby when the other gave birth (with a doctor/midwife along side — but still..). She said it’s just the kind of thing we do for each other. I like thinking of it that way.
