I had my nurse’s appointment today, where I paid off my cycle in full. It’s the most I’ve ever put on my credit card, that’s for sure.
After that, I met with my nurse – who was such a sweetie. As she was preparing everything for me, we talked house stuff and baby stuff, and then she showed me how to put all of the injectible stuff together. We were all good until it came to the actual injection part. She showed me how to put the pen together, how to put the needle points on. Then, I sat there, gripping my belly roll in one hand & the needle pen in the other – and I froze.
The nurse was lovely. She walked me through it. She saw that I was struggling, and she was so patient with me. I asked her if I could just literally JAB it in and be done with it – she told me to relax, I’m not a pincushion! 😉 After a few minutes, I finally got the courage to do it – and it was fine. Not bad at all, actually. I think I’m going to be ok.
I’m currently taking Synarel twice a day – this will continue. 7am and 7pm. I can choose when I want to take my injections, but since they must stay in the fridge, I’ll be doing those at 7am as well, since I’m always home at that time in the morning. In the meantime, here’s my wee drug stash for the next few weeks.
I will be having bloodwork taken next week, and then have my big follie scan ultrasound booked for Monday 23rd (the day I go back to work) – my nurse said if all goes well, I should be looking at egg pickup between 26th-27th April. Two weeks away! Crazy eh?
