Ouch

Internetz, I have survived three nights of intramuscular injections (IM)! If I may brag for a moment, I have to say, I was owning those needles. Well, that is, until tonight.

I'm not sure what Irish Boy did differently tonight, but that injection hurt like nobody's business. In fact, I would be remiss if I didn't say that it hurt like hell.

Tomorrow morning I start my day early with a wanding followed by blood work. Although I know it's still early days yet, let me just say that I hope that this torture produces some promising looking follicles and that Cyril the Cyst is behaving and hasn't been gorging on the Follistim and getting even bigger.

Tonight has not been an easy injection night and I fear that the memory of tonight's pain will regress me back to sheer panic when we have to do the one tomorrow night.

Someone please tell me all of this is worth it.

It's worth it, worth it, worth it!
I had to do another trigger shot tonight (I'll explain on my blog later), but Dr. Lovely gave me a THINNER needle to use and although it was the same length, its thinness made it much less painful! Maybe you can ask for one when you're at the clinic tomorrow? Hope all goes well!
Love,
Maddy

Might be a good idea to have them redraw the circles, too. I had one injection hurt like a beast because we got too close to the sciatic nerve. :) we will be thinking of you.

It will be worth it!! Good luck at your appointment in the morning.

It is all worth it. Good luck!

I know, it happens to me to with the PIO injections. Some nights are fine and some others it's like Mike is hitting a nerve or something!!! But petal, it'll be worth it. Love, Fran

YOU would regret it if you didn't try all of this--worth it!!!

It's SO worth it! W/ my PIO, I'd have bad 'hits' somedays too. Are you alternating sites? That helped me. I'd inject the left, then the next time, the right, and so on. And to remind me which side I did last, I'd put a mini band-aid after the inject. Hope your appt shows good things today!

Good luck! Good luck! I agree that you'd regret it if you didn't continue and always wonder "what if". It's worth it, definitely.

It's worth it! It's worth it! I'm praying for you girl and sending you tons of good luck =)

It's worth it.

Just try not to think about how many women that wand has been with before...

Kristin said...

It is worth it.

As for the pain, odds are good he went in close to a surface nerve ending. No real way to predict when or where that will happen.

Michelle said...

It's so Very very Worth It!
Good luck with your next appointment.

Hope you have a great appointment tomorrow!

It will be worth it when you hold your little one in your arms. Just keep your eye on the goal!

Holly said...

It's definitely worth it and your appt this morning proved it! Yay!

Jennifer said...

I just found your blog through another TTC blog. I need to do lots of catching up, but so far I am loving it. Sorry about the stupid injection. They will be worth it though! :)

Heather said...

It is worth it!!!

I hope that none of the other shots you have yet to do ever hurt you again!

I'm sorry to hear it's been bad. Infertility requires so much courage: to accept it, learn about it, venture into the land of scary medical paraphernalia and procedures... you and your guy seem to be coping with it really well. I won't say it's as bad for him to give you the injection as it is for you to get it, but I'm sure he hates the thought of doing anything that will hurt you.
Be well. I'd say have a drink on hand, but that's not even allowed tonight, I'm sure.

OUCH!!! Tell Irish Boy to take it easy! :-)

It WILL be worth it. Hang in there lady.

Maggie said...

I'm sure it will be worth it! Have a good appointment!

finch said...

Come on, Fertility Chick, you're totally gonna rock those needles! Last night was but a minor set back.

aladdinsane12 said...

ugh, i can't even read about you being poked and prodded with needles without cringing.

and, girl, you know it's worth it!

Kel said...

It is definitely worth it! Sorry you have to go through all that pain! :(
