Follistim Friday

I just realized I have been spelling Follistim wrong in past blogs. . . Oh well, I just shoot it up, I don't study the label. Geez!

Anyway, after some confusion with a nurse on what was actually my CD1, I started my first dose of Follistim this morning. I was expecting to be a day late and start tomorrow, so I was shocked that the time was now. I was still groggy (I called the clinic first thing when I got up) as I gathered my materials and brushed up on my instructions. There was no nerves, no fanfare; I just went through the motions. It feels so much different this time around. I'm not sure what to make of it.

I am not looking forward to the Menopur tonight. I hate mixing that stuff. I don't know what made me think I could to be a doctor when I was little. I am not at all crafty with a syringe.
All aboard!

The IVF train has left the station.

I hope I make it all the way to my destination.

I'm so excited to hear you are getting started and am hoping that this is the cycle that will bring you your baby!!

Good luck with the injections. My husband does all the mixing and injecting. It's like a fun little science experiment for him, I think.

I'm going to have to check my blog to see if I'm spelling follistim right!! HAHA!!

Thanks for the comment - I'm not sure if all 16 will keep growing but even if half grow we'll have twice as many as we had last time!

Good luck on the shots - they get easier everyday.

I tried the whole letting hubby mix the shots and he wanted nothing to do with it for fear he would mess it up - he said that I knew what I was doing and I should just keep doing it - he's always standing right next to me though! So . . . I guess I tried to get rid of some control and it was given back to me . . . its just meant to be that way I guess!
