I'm officially a pin cushion...

Last night, I did my first set of shots to launch us towards IVF. .05 of Suprefact (ETA - Spacey - the Suprefact is for suppression) and 150 iu of Puregon. I some how nicked myself removing the needle for the Puregon and bled for a little bit. I was a little nervous because I hadn’t given myself any shots since last August. I also had a bit of a meltdown because I thought I didn’t have any needles for my puregon pen… my mind was swirling trying to figure out how I was going to give myself the shot without needles. Then I realized that in the box with the cartridge there were not one, but two boxes of needles. Oops. Disaster averted.

This morning’s sticking went much better. I’m almost over the weird sensation of plunging something into my belly. I’m sure by the end of this I’ll be an old pro at shooting up.

I'm glad to hear that the needle issue has been averted. I'll be on either Suprefact or Lupron for suppression too (but I think Suprefact...I'll find out more hopefully soon) and Puregon too, so very similar.
I am so cheering for you!!!!

I had to laugh at the "old pro at shooting up" part. You are too sweet.

I am rootin' for you.
