Night one of injections went okay. Looking for my redo on day 2 though. lol. I watched the Follistim video on youtube again, along with a few other videos that regular people have posted showing them giving themselves the injections. Watching the other people do it made me feel better interestingly. I was still extremely nervous and so I went sooooooo slow with the hcg needle. I actually had a panic moment where I restabbed myself because I didn’t think I was in the right “zone”. I could feel like medication go in, and a small bump appeared immediately. Neither were uncomfortable though, and the bump went away within about 15 minutes. The Follistim Pen went in easily, and I couldn’t even feel it. Winding the dial down though to inject was odd for me because the dial spins and it’s difficult to hold the pen still at the same time. The Follistim stung for a little bit after the injection, and the site was tender for maybe 15 minutes. The needles left little bumps in my skin that are gone now. Otherwise, no bleeding, no crying, no weird after affects. But, I forgot to hold the Follistim needle in for the 5 seconds. Sigh. No biggie, but I’ll be sure to remember from this point forward. 🙂
I feel okay today. Although, those of you with endo will get this, I had that unbearable pressure on my bowel today. Going to the bathroom helped relieve it. I have weird displaced gas pain in my shoulder right now. Yep, I’m strange. lol.
This part is for those of you who have or are going through ivf injections now…when did you restrain from making whoopie? (sorry, I have to say it like that lol) The ivf nurse said it was okay towards the beginning of injections, but later to be careful because your ovary can very easily become twisted. So, what’s the word on this?K
