23 Weeks Preggo. INJECTION #1

23 Weeks Pregnant!
1 Injection down/ 11 More To Go!
So, I've never considered my self not being able to handle pain.
I have had many piercings over the years including: Belly Button Top & Bottom, Nose 3x, Tongue 3x, Lip, Ear Lobes 5x up, Both Ear Tragus, & the Industrial Ear Piercing.

I, also, have Five Tattoos.

Well, like I said in the first sentence, I've never considered my self not being able to handle pain, but I don't know if I can handle 11 more of these Injections.
Instead of a liquid it is a thick gel.
It wasn't that bad getting the shot, but after was pure hell. It burned and hurt so bad!
It's been 4 hours and still burns!
Once I got into my car I started bawling. I cant explain, but it was awful pain.
I know the injections are important to prevent preterm labor, so I just got to hold my head up high and keep trucking (as my brother would say) for the next eleven weeks. Damn... eleven more weeks.... LOOOONG TIME! I can do it! Oh, by the way, I'm 23 weeks pregnant today! WHOOO HOOO!


  1. You can do it, and you will do it! Where do you have to get the shot?

    I'm sorry, that really sucks that it is so painful. And that's a lot of piercings, by the way! LoL

  2. Just keep your eye on the prize (Jaxson) and you know you will be able to handle anything for that angel.

    Stay strong we are all here cheering you on.

  3. Whatever works!! And ouch, the hip!? Oohh man. When I was going into labor-ish with my 2nd son I had to get a horrible shot in my bottom! That hurt and stung enough, I can't imagine in my hip. I know you will be able to do them all though!

  4. Oh God! I hate injections too. But you can do it, just think about you precious baby. I can't believe you have all these piercings in yor hear, I bet it hurt?

  5. Ow! I had progesterone shots with my son and it is no fun!!!! :( Hang in there.

  6. Of course you can! I know you feel like you are going crazy, but my advice is hang on in there! It will all be worth it I promise! I love the fancy dresses in your pictures! Do you know the sex of the baby yet? Have you thought about baby names yet? is a great place to search as you can look by origin and meaning! Good luck for the labour, it will come. Cant wait for your birth story , Jo
