So...I told you all about how I used the wrong needle and as a result, way too much of the medication. So that night I go to do my second (first of this med) shot. I insert the needle and push the button. Nothing. I take it out and check the pen/needle and it looks good. I insert the needle again and push the button and nothing. So I try a third time. I finally call Jimmy in and even though he is not a fan of needles he helps me figure out what I am doing wrong. So I insert a fourth time and finally get it to work. So I would say that Day 1 of shots was a major fail. I overmedicated on my first and had to try four times with my second. But I am a pro now and Jimmy calls me a rock star for (1) doing it over and over again when it didn't work without complaint and (2) doing it on myself each time. So I'll take the compliment and FYI, I did great on Day 2 and this morning on Day 3. I did however stick the needle into my finger last night. It sort of bent and when I tried to remove the cap it stuck my finger. But no biggie. I have my E2 bloodwork tomorrow morning. Super early. James and I have to leave 30 minutes early to make it there on time and then get him to school and me to work on time. So that should be fun. Trying to get an 8 year old moving in the morning is always interesting. But I'll work it out :) I always do.


  1. Bless your heart - 4 sticks in one night for one dose of meds. You are rocking IVF and you're only a few days in.

    Good luck tomorrow with your bloodwork!
