Let the injections begin
I hate needles and I tend to freak out a little bit when it is time for me to get blood drawn or to get a shot. I haven't had much of a choice other than to just get over it, with all the blood work I have done lately. But giving myself a shot? Nope! No way! Never going to happen. Fortunately my dear husband Michael is up to challenge and had a little bit of training from his military days.
We decided that 9:00 will be the magic time to take my shot each night. Around 8:45 I started to get notice but began to get everything all set up. The shots were actually easier than I thought. I think Michael missed his calling he could have been a doctor or a nurse.
In case you were wondering, the doctor has me on 20 units of low dose hCG and 400 units of Follistim.
I need to be sure to take a belly picture, from what I understand there will be a lot of bloat with this medication. I am just hoping it doesn't make me crazy, well at least not any crazier than I already am.
