countdown

The countdown is on....I start my follistim injections in the morning!  Never thought I would be so excited to stick a needle in my belly.  Wish me luck and feel free to pass along any injection tips!

  1. Haha I know that feeling!
    Throw it like a dart and keep it in for a second or two after all the med went in bc it will help decrease bruising. GL :)

  2. Yay - this is so exciting!!! I've heard ice the area first - I never did though. The follistim shots aren't bad at all - very skinny needles. But definitely leave the needle in for about 5 seconds after you use all the meds as it takes awhile for it all to come out, and you don't want to waste a drop of that precious stuff!

    So excited for you!

  3. It isn't as painful as you would imagine. It more annoying than anything. Good luck!

  4. I made my husband do it on the basis that plucking your eyebrows is less sore if someone else does it!

  6. Good luck to you!!!! I agree with the other ladies who said that the injections are easy. Pretty painless. I would rotate between your belly and legs and see which is easier for you. Thinking of you...
