Grateful to a Dear Friend and Blog Giveaway

Today I received a very thoughtful package in the mail.  A dear friend, the one who lost her baby at 10 weeks, was kind enough to be thinking of others despite her grief.  This is so like her!  She has gifted me her progesterone in oil that was leftover from her pregnancy.  It is a higher concentration than what I get currently, so I only have to take half the dose.  My hiney and I are so grateful!

I want to return the favor and do a blog giveaway for 4 vials of my progesterone (equivalent to the two she gifted me).  My progesterone in sesame oil is concentrated at 50mg/ml (rather than the 100mg/mL) that Dr. Hilgers recommends.  (This is because my insurance covers it 100% this way and they do not cover compounded medication).  Anyone can enter this giveaway by leaving a comment to tell me you are "in" by Friday, May 21st at 5pm (CST).  Those that are paying out of pocket for progesterone, if any, should note it in the comment box and they will be given priority.  And this is only for folks who have a valid progesterone in oil script-I am not supporting anyone's self medicating!  That only seems fair; I hope you all agree :)

So here is the deal, talking about PIO makes me puke in my mouth a little. I lied, alot. Yes, I will do anything for that sweet baby, but my gosh, really?! I'm not complaining, I'm just saying ya'll are not telling the truth when it comes to a million bees stinging your ass! :) hahahahaha

But I would love to enter into this draw...But I only pay $26 for four viles so maybe I'm not the best candidate! But Baby Sew Jose would thank you for warming him up and Mr. Sew loves to give the injections, he thinks now its the greatest thing ever and wants to do it the rest of the pregnancy....

I actually cried through the left cheek injection last night, while DH was rubbing my butt!! :)

That's my sob story! ;)

I'm not entering (no rx or need for supplemental progesterone as of now), but it's really sweet of you to think of those who have to pay out of pocket for progesterone.

I can't enter either-I don't need it.....yet. But I'm hopeful I will someday! That's super sweet of your friend and you to think of others-you're amazing!

I never had heard of PIO till you ladies, and boy, it has taken on mythical proportion in my eyes!

Wow that is so generous of you! And I had never heard of PIO either until I just read this post! I take oral progesterone from confirmed O each month until AF...can't wait to learn more at my first Napro visit!!
