I did it! I actually injected myself last night! I am probably the biggest chicken in the world. I am really proud of myself because I never thought I would be able to inject myself! It was pretty funny, AFTER the fact, of course, not during. It took me about 30 min. of lying there with my pinched belly skin between my fingers and the needle pointed at it before I could actually do it. So many times I almost did it, then stopped myself. So finally, I did do it, and it was NOTHING! I didn't even feel it!

So I will inject myself each night. Monday I go in for blood work, then Wednesday I go in for blood work and an ultrasound. I'm just hoping I don't prode too MANY eggs. I know that can happen in PCOS women.

It is amazing what we can do when we are forced to! Congratulations! I think I would probably still be lying on the bed staring at the needle. I HATE needles!!! Odd since I have so much bloodwork. :)

Congrats Heather!! Now the rest won't seem as scary I hope. Good luck to you and hope this next cycle is it for you.

I am also a fellow PCOSer who will be joining you on the injectable roller coaster in July (I do mine in the thigh...must easier than the tummy!)

Good luck to you!!!

Welcome to the world of injections. From here on it will get easier. I can't wait to hear your outcome this month. I've got fingers and toes crossed for you.
