Otherwise known as Lupron day! I really only half felt like we were starting IVF when I downed the first BCP but administering my first injection feels very official. I'm not excited about the side effects but I am certainly thrilled to be one step closer. So how did my first shot go? Not too bad. I used to teach kids who were just diagnosed with diabetes how to give their shots and the Lupron needles are the same exact needle. I have no issue with sticking myself because I did that nearly every day with saline to prove to the kiddos that it didn't hurt. Although saline does not leave a red burning mark that looks like a mosquito bite?!?!? But this part I can manage, what I get nervous about are the IM needles and that's mainly because I can't give them myself. With the HCG shots I always kept hitting blood vessels in my legs so they have to go in my back end. I hope Hammer remembers what little we learned at the injection class when the time comes! I don't want a repeat of our last performance.
