cycle start

i was nervous and excited all day today.

we had our appointment this morning. ultrasound was all clear. everything ready to go.
i am doing all the shots IM this time. that was a shock. the last 3 cycles i have done all shots sub-q. and the thought of menopur IM scared the living daylights out of me. it burns so bad.... so, it's going to burn going into my butt muscles..... not so exciting.

everything was fine though... hubs did the shot super fast and the burning only lasted a few seconds. i think hubs is secretly excited he gets to do all of my shots.

next friday i will be full of follies!!

this has to work.


  1. Oh, wow! I haven't heard of Menopur IM. How come they had you do that? Good luck, brave girl. :)

    1. You probably already know about this, but have you tried icing your butt before taking the shot? Getting it nice and numb might help. Yay for getting this show on the road!

  2. Sorry it has to be IM, but there is likely a good reason that you RE wants to go that route. You sound excited and that's great. I am wishing you all the good luck in the world for this cycle.

  3. Oh wow! I never knew that all the shots could be done in the bum. Pretty cool that you'll have lots of follies next week. Good luck!

  4. KEEP UP THE EXCITEMENT! You deserve it, your follies deserve it, and by george, it'll do nothing but good things.
