Then yesterday it was time for the shots. That's when I decided to dive into the goody bag. Stressful! I forgot everything they taught in the education session. (I knew I should have recorded that on my iPhone!) I spent an hour or so on youtube looking for videos on how to give Menopur and Follistim injections. Thankfully, I found quite a few. Other than agonizing over how much saline I was supposed to mix the Menopur with, it was OK.
I thought the Follistim injection was a walk in the park. I had surgery to remove an ovarian cyst back in the 90's before laproscopic was all the rage. And I've never fully regained the feeling around the bikini incision. This was helpful for the injections. The Menopur still burned a little, but I was expecting it because my new IVF friend had told me about it.
I survived day 1! I know it'll get worse, but for now, I'm OK.
