So the Ganirelix did not hurt one bit tonight! I was able to do it quick. Now the funny part is, the Follistim did hurt a little! Now that I look at where I did it, I think I may have done it too close to where I hit the blood vessel. I thought I was far enough away, but it looks like I am pretty close. But honestly, it didn't hurt THAT bad. And I am a wimp. I really hope my blog can be reassuring to anyone who is scared of doing injects. I am a total wimp, and I can do it!

I have more blood work and an ultra sound in the morning! I'm hoping I will trigger soon! I'm a little worried since I'm not sure if I got my dose of Follistim! The directions said that if you run out, the plunger will stop and you can just see how much more you need, and put in a new cartridge. Well, the plunger didn't stop. But then I did the math and it doesn't add up. I had a 600 IU cartridge and have used 625 IU. But, there is no way I'm giving myself more just in case! I guess the worst that will happen is that my follies don't grow enough and I have an extra day of injects.

The Follistim company gives an extra 100iu per cartridge so really your 600 was a 700.

Lots of luck today. Can't wait to hear about your u/s and b/w.

I was just going to say the same thing! Use that sucker till its gone!

There was a lawsuit quite some time ago about them NOT being filled enough, so since then they OVER fill them.

I always got an extra 125-150 IF I pushed it out of mine!

GOOD LUCK!
