Stinging Stims....

Last night, I started my follistim. We did the shot where we have been doing lupron (back of my arm) and DAMN did it sting. Maybe some of your IVF veterans out there have some tips? I think I'm going to try my belly tonight.

In other news, I have to go into Boston for bloodwork (thankfully, no wanding.... although I am curious as to what is going on in there by then) on Sunday morning. 8 AM. It's an hour drive one way. And my father in law is visiting. Sigh. This baby is messing with my sleep schedule before it is even conceived!!

Did Lup.ron make you nuts? I am so grumpy and cranky and I feel ill. My boobs are sore, I have a headache, I feel bloated, and just icky. I am going to be on Lupron until the 2nd of November.

I go for a roll of gut fat, personally.

If you go through a small vessel, it often stings and bleeds a bit afterwards. There's no realy way to avoid that, just luck.

Personally I find that the combination of either pinching the skin up good, or pulling it taut and shoving the needle home fast (like a dart!) often means that you don't feel a thing.

I've tried a bunch of spots and found one area of my stomach, a few inches below my belly button on the right side, where it doesn't hurt at all. I think some areas are just more sensitive than others. Hope you find a sweet spot soon!

Go Red Sox!!
