We do. It's sometimes a bit overwhelming but we're hoping to adopt so we keep going with it. However, it's possible this will be our last placement. Being a foster parent is really hard.

I tested again last night and it was neg. So the faint positive on Sunday was the last day of the trigger. Good to know. So now I'm just hanging out until Thursday.

I bet it's hard! But so sweet too.

So good to know it was trigger still. I am going to keep my fingers crossed there is still a chance!

Went to the appt today to learn how to do injections and get the prescriptions. I got so overwhelmed I cried. Lmao! Oops

Granted, I only did one, but the injection wasn't so bad. It was the 5 minutes leading up to the injection that was rough! haha. I was just sitting in my kitchen staring at the needle and willing it into my body. But the actual injection was pretty minor.

You can do it!

Totally agree! I was on Gonal F last cycle and did 10 days on meds before triggering. The thought of the injection is WAY worse than the actual injection itself! If I could give myself two pieces of advice looking back on it, they would be 1) to warm the injection before you give it to yourself. Let it come to room temp- it makes it much more comfortable. 2) I found that pinching and holding the skin where I was injecting was key- I barely even felt it vs the one time I forgot to do that and it did hurt a bit. You got this!!

I think it's just the idea of doing it to yourself that is the obstacle. I have 7 tattoos, several of which were 3+ hour sittings. I have zero problem with needles. But it still took me 10 minutes and a beer to gather up the courage to stick myself.

But really - it was nothing. The medication did feel a little funny when I was injecting it, but I wonder if that's because it was straight from the refrigerator. I didn't even think of that.

Yes! I love tattoo talks! You have your ribs done? Yikes - I haven't ventured there yet. I have both arms and several on my back. The most painful I've had has been the inner part of my upper arm. But even that's not so bad. It's kind of like the fun pain. Completely temporary and then you have this beautiful piece of art to sport around for the rest of your life.

How is everyone doing? Secret, how was your first injection? Not too bad, I hope!!

I am CD 9 and had my 2nd scan this morning (first one of this cycle was CD7 on Christmas morning, so THAT was fun hahaha). I have 3 follicles around 13mm- 2 on the right and one on the left. Lining is coming along at 5.8- seemed thin to me, but neither my doctor or nurse is concerned since as the follicles mature they said the lining will respond to the increase in estrogen. My estrogen levels today were rising to be consistent with the follicle growth, and since everything looks good, no change to my dose. I've been on 100IU of Gonal-F for 6 days and I've been through 2 scans and they have been happy with the result and haven't changed my dose at all, which I feel like means they found what works for me, while last cycle they were tweaking to find the right balance. I am feeling so positive for this cycle! Even my RE said this morning that she was "feeling lucky!" I go back on Thursday to see what progress we've made, and if all continues to go well, I anticipate IUI just in time for New Year's Eve!
