So...I was supposed to start my injections on Sunday morning. But I was also supposed to have my period prior and I had not as yet. So I called the doctor's office late Saturday night. Was told that I would get a call back. Two hours later I called again. I was told that the doctor would call me back before my morning injection. I have a two hour window. Just before the window closed I called again and was told I would get a call back. By the end of Sunday, no call and no period.

So this morning I took a pregnancy never know right? I was a pill baby :) Not pregnant. Just before I left for work I went to the bathroom and had spotting. So I quick went and did my first injection. I was so freaked out that I did it wrong. And apparently my instinct was correct. When I finally spoke to a nurse, I had used the wrong needle. I had used the monster progesterone oil needle. So I gave myself too much. Yeah, I'm an idiot like that. She said that it should not be an issue, but once we see my E2 blood work we'll see if it will change any of my protocol. I am so mad at myself. And the office for not calling me back and leaving me on my own. The nurse apologized over and over. Said that there is an IVF nurse on call at all times and she doesn't know why my message wasn't put through to her. She was reporting it to the head nurse and the answering service coordinator. But I still spent all Saturday night in tears and all this morning freaking out that I screwed up (and with good reason :). So now everything shifts a day. My E2 will be on Thurday rather than Wednesday. My first monitoring will be on Saturday rather than Friday, etc.

Oh is what it is, right? Fingers crossed that this was just a rough start and everything from here on out is smooth sailing. I deserve that, right? Right? Come on...RIGHT?
