Oh I'm so glad it went well!! Did you ice before the injection? My RE's nurse recommended the "Buzzy" so I'll be using that for all my IM injections.

Yes, I'll find out my protocol today at my baseline apt, but I know it'll be 4g of Estrace cream each night (yuck! I know how you feel about that), 2 Vivelle DOT patches that I change every other day, Estadiol tables 4x day. Then I'll add in IM estrogen at some point, it could start tomorrow. Not looking forward to it but I'm so over these cancellations I'll do almost anything at this point! And I'm seeing a fertility acupuncturist who works with my RE. She said they could fix my lining issue in 2-6 weeks. we'll see. I just want something to work!

I have another appt Thurs and should start the PIO shots Thurs. Right now it's 10cc Lupron in stomach daily since Oct 9, started .22 Delestrogen in hip Oct 20 every Mon and Thurs. Started antibiotics twice a day until transfer and starts today. Stomach shots hurt way worse.. I ice for about 5 min bf delestrogen. We also warm liquid on syringe. Small bruise but no pain usually. I'm sure when progesterone is daily I may get sore. The needle looks way scarier imo!!
Good luck Emzack!!! So excited for you!! I've got a 9 more days!! Craziness!!!

Excited for everyone starting, mid cycle, getting positives, etc etc. I'm so happy I found you ladies.

Anyone want to start a private Fb group? I'd be happy to but woukd you join?

If you ice about 5 min or so you don't feel anything. I have t had any problems. I do them mon and Thurs. I'm more nervous about the PIO daily. The stomach shots hurt and bruisemore IMO. The only complaint aside from just being over the whole pin cushion thing is these headaches daily.. And my emotional roller coaster. One week away :). When is your transfer?

EMZack how did it go??

Hi Sgordon,
I couldn't find the group. I typed in "Fertility Friends and Support closed group" and just "fertility friends and support". What did I do wrong?

By the way, I am 7dp5dt. I have been testing out my 5000 units shot of HCG and I think it was out of my system at 5dp5dt and the line is starting to get darker. Please KYFC!!
