First shot done
Last night my hubby gave me my first Follistim shot. He gave me 50iu. I was nervous even though I have done the Ovidrel shot before and it wasn’t a big thing. We watched the video on my RE’s site to refresh our memory on how to do things and then the hubby started putting things together. He was acting goofy to lighten the mood and to make me laugh. He is a really sweet guy. I started getting more nervy once the needle started coming towards me, but I closed my eyes and did it. It wasn’t really that big of a thing, I just don’t like it when the needle is heading my way lol. It stung a little where it went in and it felt like he pushed the last of it in. I didn’t really get any side effects from it so far and I fell asleep thirty minutes later.
Today I am very aware and sensitive to that area. I’m like did I feel something down there? Are things growing? LOL I know I’m a dork. I think I will be googling later today to see how much follistim can make a follicle grow with each shot. Anyone know? I know normally one can grow 2mm a day.
I also wanted to thank all of you guys who read my blog and on twitter. I have really enjoyed sharing this journey with you and getting your cheers of support and experience. Thanks so much 🙂
