Obviously I told him to go for it. I didn't take a before picture but you can just imagine three shelves overflowing with medications and vitamins. A lot of it was leftover stuff from IVF and then just random bottles of Ty.lenol, etc.
Anyway, we went through every single item and ended up with quite bit to take to the hospital medical waste. I had some leftover medicine that I donated to my clinic since they were unopened.
The point of this post is not about the cleaning out of the cabinet. The point is that I wanted to show you this picture.
That is 10 full sharps containers. TEN. FULL. The one on the far right is about halfway full but the other are brimming. All of these are from trying for baby #2. When I was working at the hospital while trying to get pregnant with B I would take them occasional and empty them in to the sharps containers there. But now that I don't work there they have just piled up over the last 2 1/2 years. These are the needles from one frozen embryo transfer and 3 IVF's. Geez. Just call me a pincushion!
It felt good to get rid of all of that...the medication included. Part of me wanted to wallow in the fact that I even had to poke myself that many times. Wah wah wah. But ya know what? It was worth it and I knew that it would be. That is why I kept going. I am so thankful to be where we are right now. I am so thankful that we were ABLE to keep going. Sometimes it still feels surreal. Like I am going to wake up and all of this was just a dream. Then I get a swift kick to the bladder as a reminder that THIS IS HAPPENING. This girl is so happy and so in love with these two tiny miracles.
