Here we go – round #1, shot #1!
This is a 5 minute video, and probably pretty boring for most of you, but I wanted to document my first shot. 🙂 If you watch it, you can see me almost stick a LONG-ASS needle into my belly instead of the 1/2″ needle and then not even know how to unscrew it. Oops.
I kind of mumbled in the video, but I said somthing like “for those of you who have done hundreds of these, I admire you.” DEFINITELY DEFINITELY! Thank you so much everyone who has emailed me tips about this. It seems so simple (and honestly, it IS pretty simple), but there’s something about shooting oneself up that got me pretty nervous!
That being said, I wasn’t so much nervous about the needle as I was about making sure I did everything correctly. I did no less that 5 things incorrect in the video above, but at least I always caught my mistakes, and I think I did everything right! It didn’t sting going in, but by 30 minutes later, it definitely had a little sting to it and the injection site was all red and raised.
Please excuse the pudgy belly and snow white skin. I’m actually not as pale as I look in the video, but my webcam wasn’t registering me quite right. Ah well.
Okay, enough of me blowing up your reader lately. I promise to try to cut back on the posts for awhile!
