First round done

My baseline appointment went well. Estrogen was 53. I gave myself the first injection in a hotel room in a city I' ve never been to before. I had the directions up on my iPad and DH on the speakerphone as I figured out what to do. It wasn't so bad. Sticking the needle in was actually the easiest part! There was a bit of a sting afterwards. Why doesn't anyone ever warn about that?

This was a quick trip so tomorrow I fly back home. The airline said I could the needles in my carry-on, but I' d rather not deal with TSA. Plus it easier to tell my boss I just prefer to check my bag than explain why I have needles. He already has one employee now who had many dr appointments and is now pregnant with twins from IVF, so it is better to avoid mentions of doctors.


  1. Yay for the first round being done! The gonal-f didn't sting me, but menopur did. It felt like a bee sting. Icing it after helped a little. I also found that if the meds were cold, it wasn't as bad- but that's just me.

    Good luck this cycle!

  2. Way to go on the first round! It sounds like you did great- sorry it stung:(

  3. Hi there! I just came across your blog and wanted to wish you the best of luck with this cycle. I truly hope that it is the one. Looks like we are cycling together - I am a day or so behind you - I start the injections tonight for my second IUI! Here's to hoping we can celebrate a couple of BFPs!!!
