Well I did my shot(s) yes Shots...last night. I forgot to prime the pen and I wound it up to 150 and then realized I hadn't primed...so I primed it from there and then there was only 112.5 in the pen so I had to give myself two shots..Nice start. I was a little flustered.
Except. It didn't even hurt. I have a nice little fatty area on my belly :) and I think that's what has made it so easy. I wasn't even that pissed that I had to do a second shot.
I am getting ready to do my shot for tonight and then tomorrow and Thursday and then I go in for an US on Friday.
I am hoping we do the Ovidrel trigger early and can do the IUI early, since I've read online that sometimes the Gonal F causes early maturation of follicles *This cycle is a test run for IVF, although, hopeful as ever I want this to be it and not have to go to IVF* My Dr wanted to do a test run of the medications since she is not sure how I will respond. She likes to do it this way so that when we move to IVF she has a better picture of what she might have to tweak, add etc to the drug cocktail and then there's less chance of cancellation etc. Whatever sounded good enough to me.
That's all for now, I did get a massive headache awhile after the shot, but that could have been a cold symptom. I still haven't been able to shake that. Other than that I haven't had any adverse symptoms from the shots.
Thanks to all the ladies who told me I would get used to it and it wouldn't be that bad. You were all right and I kept telling myself that when I was getting ready to do it last night. Tonight should be much easier.
