Day 30 (cycle day2) – this is what you call LIGHT???

OK, so I was told AF will be light. Today I realized that that’s not going to be. AF was full force – NO difference from every other time. Complete with cramps and all its typical miseries.I started filling out the tons of forms today. DIdn’t finish, but got a good ways along and wrote down a bunch of questions to call and ask about too.

Also, DH and I watched the Follistim video together, which explained how to administer the Follistim injection. Looks simple enough, and yet is still so high tech. This whole pen concept is still so weird to me. Its like assembling something together – you plug in the cartridge, the needle snaps in, and voila! Here is this sci-fi looking contraption that you are going to inject yourself with.

You dial the dose on it, and stab yourself and you’re done. The needle is superfine, you can barely see it. I have a feeling that I should be OK with the shots.

I guess if we have any questions, we will ask on Thursday. The appointment sure is coming up soon!

As of today, 10 shots down, only 3 more to go!! And then its check time, and hopefully… the stimming phase!
