Just call me HP... in, the Human Pincushion. Let me tell you, these three shots a day are really kicking my butt. My only affirmation is that it WILL all be worth it in the end, but wow....The lupron in the AM hurts going in because the needle gets dulled by the bottle stopper when it gets drawn up, and the stims hurt just because of the sheer volume of liquid that's being forced into one tiny spot in my belly...and to have to do two of them is really uncomfortable. My MIL's been doing them, so that's nice, not having to worry if I am mixing & drawing it up right, or where to put the needle, but she even said today that it's been hard to find a new spot on my belly...especially when she's trying to avoid my bruise that's still lingering from over a week ago, when I hit a vein doing my own lupron shot. Just keep praying that everything looks good at the first follie scan on Wednesday.
