First Shot Done!

So I mixed the fluid and the powder for the Menopur, tapped out the air bubbles, squeezed the plunger until a drop came out (well, two), inserted the needle in my stomach, and sent in the drugs. The needle only hurt a little, and I could feel a very slight burn from the medicine, but other than that, it didn't hurt at all! I thought that for the first one, I'd see how much it hurt, and then decide what kind of pain numbing thing I wanted to try. It's nice to know I probably won't need one. Although, we'll see if the Follistim feels the same way tonight.

I slept like crap last night though from being nervous about the first shot. In one dream the medicine turned into mud in the syringe, so it wouldn't work. Weird.


  1. Well done! See, it's not so bad. Anticipation is the worst.

  2. Yay, good job!!!
    When I tried it by itself, it burned me a LOT, glad it wasn't like that for you! This is so exciting =)
