I have to say, I'm not used to feeling this insecure about a single life decision. I mean, don't get me wrong - when it comes to my students and my job, I second guess every single thing I do :) But when it comes to personal issues, I usually know what I want to do.

And I think I still do, but after visiting my family this weekend and seeing the reaction of family at the situation, I'm a bit put off. I mean, it seems to be the idea of a daily injection that's throwing people - and as Brian says, if it were a daily pill, no one would blink. But then my brother and his wife got a bit skittish by the whole "pregnant and anti-coagulant" thing...and since he's a dentist (and not a real doctor :) it kinda freaked me out.

I'm sure it's still ok and that it's not going to be a problem. Right? I mean, it's not like they're telling me that I have a one in five chance that there will be something seriously wrong or that it's iffy that I can do this. The doctor has three women on this regimen right now (for the same issue) and they are all full-term or almost. She felt very good about it and said there was no reason to worry - as much as you can not worry. Of course there's always that small percentage and you can't guarantee...

I guess I'm just afraid that I'm pushing my luck. But maybe not. I guess I have to stick with my gut instinct and go with it.

  1. I bet your family is just worried about you.
    I can't imagine giving myself daily injections, but LOTS of people do it and have no problems. I wouldn't think that would be something to really get worried about. The first few days will be the toughest and then it will just become routine. At least that is how it would seem to me. I have no idea...
