My children may turn out small & furry

Tonight is my first Follistim shot. I'm perfectly fine with giving myself a needle but no matter how much I try to convince my hubby he should watch me inject myself he says no. I'm trying to get him used to the idea of needles if we ever have to do IVF which would require someone shooting me in the ass. I'd rather not have to ask my mother or sister for help with that!

Anyways, being a consummate nerd I of course read the inserts of the med & found that it was made from the hCG of Chinese hamsters. Intrigued, I googled "Chinese hamster"; above is one of the photos that popped up.

I love it! A hamster kicking ass; ha! Maybe he'll whip my ovaries into shape this cycle. I think he's the perfect mascot for those of us dealing with infertility.
