Shots for Mommy and Babies

All of my fertility injections were subcutaneous, so were my heparin injections - didn't hurt one bit. Today I had my flu shot which was intramuscular and it hurt - a lot. I can hardly lift my right arm it's so sore - and I'm glad I had the nurse give me the shot in my right arm. Though I am right handed, I carry and hold the babies with my left arm - imagine if that was the arm hurting now.

So, I am reminded how bad an intramuscular shot can hurt. And why is that really important right now? The girls get their four month shots tomorrow. I only had one shot today...I can't even think of the pain my poor babies will feel tomorrow. :(
