I'm nervous about doing injections, since it's my first time! How are you handling that?
Injections can definitely be something to be nervous about. Luckily, my DH is an RN and so he is used to giving meds and such. However, I heard that they are injected in your belly? I thought they would just be in my hip or arm or something...I guess I didn't think too much about it. I saw a lot of posts about bruising around the belly button- due to the daily injection sites. I also heard some say that it burned once going in. THAT'S what I'm nervous about...and the possible side effects are never comforting.
Are you doing two-a-day injections also? That's what they are going to put me on after AF comes (which is a whole other frustration!). I was put on Provera (10 day pill) to start my cycle. I finished the last pill yesterday, and still no AF. It looks like this is the first of a few waiting games, though, so I should practice with a smile :)
When exactly do you start next week on the injections? Monday? I'd like to be praying for you. I'm Stephanie, by the way :)
Oh goodness, you're lucky that your DH can do that for you!!! Mine is staying as far as humanly possible away from that. In fact, I'll be asking my neighbour (former IVF'er) to be doing my trigger shot, because I don't think I can give myself a shot in the bum. Just not logistically feasible I don't think?
I haven't taken Provera, but I do take progesterone supplements every cycle. AF doesn't show up for me until 2-3 days after I stop them, so that could just be the case for you? (Hopefully anyways!)
I think I'll likely be doing 1 injection a day? It depends on my next scan (Tuesday). Since I do ovulate on my own (just not very well) they're starting me on a fairly low dose. I guess we'll see though. I didn't ask about that part, though I guess I should have? I go for my injection class right after my scan, and get all my instructions then as well.
Thanks for the prayers =) We pray for the whole board over here! And I'm Annie =)
