Want to binge on egg freezing blogs? You are in the right spot. Grab some coffee, or some dogs, and go for it.
“Here I am, 34 years old and about to start giving myself shots. I don’t like doctors and avoid medicine most times. I pride myself on answering “not applicable” when a form asks me what medicines I currently take.
It’s not that I don’t believe in science; I rather enjoy allowing nature and my natural body to heal itself.
Luckily, I was born into a body that has been healthy and naturally self-sustaining, and I am grateful for my (knock on wood) healthy, physical state.
That said, I am choosing to move forward into the great, big, cold world of fertility. Wonder how I got to this point? So do I.
If I were to say I fully embraced the egg freezing option, I would be lying………”
They didn’t say how many, how often, or that they might change daily. But I did know it was coming. Shots.
For some reason when it came to my egg freezing decision, I didn’t read much of anything. I didn’t research, I didn’t find blogs about other stories, I didn’t try to listen to advice. I just committed to the “yes.”
Once I said “yes” I knew there was no turning back. Therefore, why waste my energy on information that might scare me, or shock me or slow down the process.
There I was, staring at round two.
The first night was done and then the second night arrived. Gosh, to fast.
I was out of “phone a friend” phone calls.
It was something the needle and I had to do together.
About an hour went by. It only took about one more hour of mental focusing, for me to accomplish Day 2. This is how it went, my mental game was weak. After a few days, I don’t think I can say I took it like a champ. But two things happened….
Pressure. What does it feel like to have pressure?
There is self-created emotional pressure we place on ourselves. When emotions are attached to a situation or a person, self-imposed pressure might cause us to place unrealistic expectations on ourselves. Then there is pressure from the stress of something, like a job or future event rapidly approaching. A fear of failure of sorts.
The type of pressure I am referring to is more physical. A feeling of expansion from things growing inside a female body.

Monday afternoon is ticking along (Day 9 of shots) and my nurse says, you need to take the Big Daddy shot at exactly 7pm tonight. Okay, it’s called the Trigger Shot, but that’s what it sounded like in my head.
The Big Daddy.
At this point it was almost 5pm. I needed to get my butt home, by bus, tame my little man, aka my 15 pound dog, try not to alcohol swipe my stomach too many times (I am a little obsessed see They Said There Would Be Shots blogpost) and pull the trigger (or push to be exact) by 7pm. No problem; I got this.
And then I get on the wrong bus, surprise!
