Thanks, Catherine! I just got really scared and DH is out of town on business. I'm sitting here in tears. I know it's something I have to do and it won't be bad. The practice shot wasn't bad this morning. I think I must be tired, as well!

You go Therese, I hope that it is only the tiniest pinch [:0]! Look at it this way, there are women out there shooting all sorts of nasty stuff into their butts (or DH) just to get pregnant.... you can do it!!

Well, I had my US today, which showed "baby dot," just a sac with a heartbeat!! I was pretty excited, until the nurse pulled out the syringes and I had to practice injecting a washcloth, then myself! [xx(] At 9pm tonight I will give myself my first Lovenox injection. The first of many, many, many, as I hope it's the key to a long, successful pregnancy! I am so nervous, but I know it's a good thing! Please keep me in your thoughts! I'm such a wimp!!!
