THANK GOODNESS! I was so worried about the dreading stinging i have heard about.
I took it to a whole new level of crazy yesterday while doing this. I was just nervous about mixing the meds and doing it right, so i FaceTime'd with my SIL (my BFF) and she watched me to make sure i wasn't screwing it up. Then she counted slowly while i did my injection. It stung a bit, but not too bad. no where near what i feared it would be.
I do have to say, i feel bloated this am. I think its more in my mind, though. i doubt i'm already feeling it considering i took the shot only 16 hours ago.
RN called back after my baseline appt yesterday and i have a total of 22 follicles and estrogen level was 42. She said she was very happy with this. I go back Friday am for monitoring. We are still on track for ER March 1st or 2nd. :)
