I'm sorry they hurt and itch. Mine don't hurt at all, with the exception of the site being sore and maybe a tiny bit bruised sometimes.
Did you have lots of contrax last time? How are the shots working for you otherwise?
The shots are working thus far, but I'm getting them because my son came early due to PTL (quick onset with rupture). It was scary and I can only hope moment to moment that it'll keep working until at least 37 weeks! :)
So in the grand scheme of things, the pain is not a big deal, just wondering what others were experiencing. I keep hearing that the itching is normal....which is super fun. ;-)
