Say hello to my little friend...


So I had my first shot tonight.I tried to practice last night with a pen that had saline in it that my friend gave me (she is an MA) and I just could not bring myself to do it.I think the anticipation is what was getting to me.So I gave up and am having my MA friend do all my injections including my HCG shot.She gladly came over after work tonight to give it to me.And will do the same every day unless I tell her not to.We are not having DH do it because he gets a bit wuzzy (a lot more than wuzzy)when he thinks people are hurting me (just go back to my post about my mock transfer and read how he reacted to that) so having him do it would kind of make him and I both nervous.She is happy to do it and I have known her since we were both 3 so I am comfortable with her doing it plus she does this every day at work so she has lots of practice.Anyway it went well and didn't really hurt at all.Just a tiny sting of the very thin needle and pressure of the pen meeting the skin.So here we are 1 down and probably about 8-9 more to go.It could be more or less depending on how my body responds.I have blood work and an ultrasound on this Friday at 9:45 am. (yes those are my very warm, fuzzy,soft and pink pj pants in the pic,I have a few different pairs in different colors they are great,but pink is my favorite color)

It's great that you have a friend who can take care of this for you...helps to alleviate a lot of stress.

Hang in there! I used to work as a vet tech and can give shots with the best of them- just not to myself. When I had shots during our failed cycle, I made my hubby give them to me (he's a vet). Hey, it's one way to have him experience some of what we go through :)

I remember crying like a baby when I had to give myself my first injection! Now, all is well, but in Oct. 07, that was a different story!

I hope my RE lets me do the follistim pen. I heard those are really decent. Well, I guess I need a period first, then I can start to think about the drugs!!! LOL Good luck honey!!
