Pins & Needles… or just a pin cushion?

I’m beginning to look like a pincushion on my backside with little prick marks across the upper region.

Hubby has done a wonderful job as I know this is not easy for him to be inflicting minor pain on me each morning and standing by as I limp off to begin my day.

By no fault of his, he crept a little too close to my middle region of my back area and boy was that a rough day. Thankfully we have clarified where the upper quadrant is for this to continue.

If we are fortunate, we will continue with these morning shots and the three pills a day for the next 10-12 weeks.

Yes, shots in the buttock for the entire first trimester.

The progesterone and estrogen combination is helpful in continuing to create a safe home for Coffee Bean to be secure and to grow healthy.

Unfortunately for me, this means morning IM shots and a day with soreness when I walk and sit.

This is all worth it… this is totally worth it.

I have continued seeing my acupuncturist, 4 times over these past 14 days. Her main focus has been to increase blood flow to the uterus.

This time she has had me laying on my stomach and needling areas of my lower back and connecting stimulation clips that provide an additional current to help encourage the response for blood flow.

I can honestly say I have done everything I can think of to prepare my body for this little one to rest and grow.

Tomorrow, we fly!
