IVF ramblings

I gave myself my first injection of suprefact for this round tonight. In some ways it is so much better doing subcutaneous injections, but in other ways it isn't. It's good that I don't have the huge intra-muscular needle and associated owies, but it isn't so great that I give myself the sub-Q injections. My hands were shaking like crazy, and I have to do this at least 20 more times. Okay, I have to stop thinking about that now. Luckily my doc prescribed Prometrium rather than projesterone in oil this time around. Sure it may be a bit gunkier, but needles really freak me out. You would think the daily injections, bloodtests and the occasional IV would have helped me to get over this, but nope, I'm as squidgy about them today as I've always been.
