Shooting up

   This is my first cycle with injectables.  For the past 4 nights I've been anxiously watching the clock, waiting for the time when I can jab a needle into my belly again.  I think I've been so excited about giving myself injections because it makes me feel productive.  I like anything that makes me feel more in control of the situation, whether it's drinking some crazy tea blend or gorging myself on pineapple after each insemination.  Even wearing lucky socks to my appointments makes me feel as though I'm helping to tip the scales in my favor.  I've always been a bit of a control freak, but now I'm becoming a superstitious control freak.  
   The clinic has had me on 75 IU, and they'll raise or lower the dose based on what they see in my follicle scan tomorrow.   I haven't been feeling any different since I started the injections-  no crazy mood swings or horribly swollen ovaries- so I am a bit concerned that I might not be responding to the drugs.  But the sooner I get off this computer, the sooner I can get to bed.  And the sooner I get to bed, the sooner I can wake up, go to my appointment and find out.

You are in the same stage we are. I know what you mean about feeling excited again. We feel excited for the first time in a long time. At least we will get to try each month with the new meds. Good luck to you.

Hi! I came across your blog, um, somehow (don't remember now). Anyway, just wanted to wish you guys GL!

I know how you feel about these blogs - I am not on fb or or whatever the kids are doing these days. I really started my blog just to have a place to write down info, then pass along to friends and family once we tell them all. That said, it's nice to read others' experiences.

Wishing you two a smooth (and short!) journey.

Ha - I'll never think about caramel macchiato the same way again... :)
