January 8, 2010


Ok so after the highs of the previous night, last night was like a horror movie!! D got all the meds ready in record time.. everything was ready in 7 minutes!! He was so proud of himself!!! He did my microdose first as usual and it was painful but bearable. Then he went on to do the Menopur and it was ok at first but it hurt like hell going in and I flinched. D said not to move but I did and so when he took the needle out a lot of blood came cashing out. It was so scary, D looked pale and I kept telling it was ok! Anyway, it stopped shortly after and I immediately got bruises in both injection sites. I iced the area for another 10 minutes and then put on an heating pad for good measure. I went to do my nightly meditation which relaxed me and put me right at easy. I listen to it twice a day, one whilst I am work during my lunch break and then at night after the injections. I am still on Hitting your Mark.. From shots to retrieval!! I'll post the link so others who are not familiar with Anji can "get relaxed too"!

Today I didn't get a lump which is good but two bruises. Oh well like a good friend of mine reminded me .."no pain no gain"!! So I take the pain and hope that tomorrow's first follicles scan shows some gain!!

It's almost time for the dreaded injections.. wish me luck and please let there not be blood!!


  1. Good luck. Hope there wasn't any blood!

  2. Hey! Just found your blog... good luck! I hope this is it for you! I'm praying 2010 will be a good year for many of us infertile! I have good feelings :)
