I've been wanting to blog this all day but kept telling myself that it was not blogworthy. But I can't help myself any longer; I just have to blab it.

My ovaries feel like they're on fire.

No, seriously. I feel like I am burning up from the inside. You know when your laptop is on your legs for too long? That's what it feels like on my stomach. From the inside.

The other day my neighbor's 7-year-old gave me a hug. Her head is belly button height, and she recoiled from the hug saying, "Eww, you're hot."

So...things must be working. I'm apparently producing a lot of energy.

I had my ultrasound today to make sure the meds are doing what they should, and it appears we're good to go at the end of this week. I am not so excited that I have to give myself a shot of HCG on Wednesday. A shot. This was nowhere to be mentioned before today. I nearly freaked out when the nurse told me.

I would not be a good diabetic.

I am scheming to get my neighbor to do it for me.

So then by the weekend we will have done all that can be done, and thus begins The Waiting Game. I need to plan some activities for myself for the beginning of October.

I have made 19 preemie caps in the past week. You think I have nervous energy?

Don't forget my order for blue socks (see your knitting post comments) ;)

I'm rooting for you, sister. If there's anything I can do for you, all you gotta do is send the word and I'm on it.

You go GIRRRRLLL! Would you rather be hot or cold? I feel good about this. Really good. And just because I said it makes it true.

OH, and be careful what you ask for?!? :)

I am excited to hear....

Not to be too crude about it---but it sounds like they are ready to pop to me. I know what that feels like. Good luck, and don't do a Jon and Kate on us!

When I started reading your post, I was scared. Then I read further and was relieved. Sort of. (A shot? Yikes!) This is the strangest-sounding good news I've read in a while.

Here's hoping ...

19 caps in a week? That's almost three a day! How long does it take you to make one?

Good luck!!!! If I lived near you, I would be happy to give you your shot. I could even dust off some credentials to prove I'm qualified ;)

I'd like to say that if I were there, I'd give you the shot, but that would be lying. I'd take you somewhere to have someone give it to you, though, if that counts. :)

Sounds like your oven is getting all preheated for a little bun (or pressure). Keep us posted!

I gave my best friend in GA 2 months worth of shots before her in-vitro. We always laughed that you know you've got a good friend when you trust her to give you a shot in the butt. :)

Best wishes for your efforts.

As for activities and nervous energy, might I suggest a change-up in knitting activities?

Try making something completely different, such as a medium to large scale animal, or some-such.

This will engage your mind more fully than objects which you are already accustomed to making.

That's awesome! *thinking positive thoughts*

And I am so with you on the shots thing - I've often thought it's good that I don't have to deal with shots, it would end badly!
