Today was CD8 (I am totally not paying attention so I had to look that up) I just write down each dose for each day as I get them and I don't pay much attention to anything else. I'm a little disconnected from this cycle and I think it is good for me. I took 75UI of follistim CD3-7 and tonight I bumped it up to 125UI. At today's u/s Dr G said I have a bunch of follicles, but they are still small. I take 125UI tomorrow night too and go back on Thursday for more bloodwork and an u/s.
Each night I have tried to hard to give myself the shot, but I just can't do it. I know I'm not nervous and shaking anymore like when I tried to do the ovidrel in our last cycles. I know it won't hurt. I have given myself shots of saline before when I was teaching patients how to give themselves insulin so it's not like giving myself a shot is new. I just can't do it now. I was getting angry at myself because I feel stupid that I can't do it. Then last night I think I figured it out.
I am just so emotionally invested in this that maybe it's a little overwhelming. I need someone to take some of the pressure off me and the Hubby giving me the shot does it in some strange way. Does that make any sense to anyone? So the Hubby gets to "jab/poke/stick/shoot me up"(it changes each night) every night. He seems to enjoy it and even might look forward to it. It may be fun to him, but I really appreciate that he does it for me and I tell him that every night.
