OUCH!
The stims are not going nearly as well as the Lupr0n injections did. They burn… and today I hit a little vain and started to bleed. I have nicked myself with a Lupr0n needle resulting in a teeny tiny little drop - this was different, and a little freaky, and will probably result in a bruise.

Between the period bloat and the crazy drugs I have running through my system I have manage to outgrow virtually all of my clothes in a week. I know it is only going to get worse and I pray that I can find SOMETHING in my closet at the end of next week that still fits and is appropriate attire for my professional day job. The infertile sweatpants- they just will not cut it!

So far I really haven’t had any side effects unless you count hot flashes and exhaustion. I have stopped drinking my two glasses of red wine a night and have started mixing my coffee in the morning – half decaf and half regular. I know that some of you continue to live life just like normal and I respect that – it just does not work for me. I am too much of a worrywart and need to know that if this fails it was not because I had a glass of wine with dinner on day 6 of stims or two cups of coffee on the morning of day 8 (in my heart I know that none of that really matters – but I just CANT). Husband always says “paranoia will destroy ya” but in this case I just HAVE to be paranoid.

I am approximately one week from retrieval – wow!

Wow - things are moving along. The tip I received about bruising with the stim needles was that if I kept firm pressure on the site after removing the needle I would bruise less - seemed to work. Sorry about that bit of assvice.

Wow alright!
It's such a promising and exciting time. I am in the thick of a cycle myself. Good Luck lady!

I hope that despite the injection problems, the stims are working nicely on your ovaries!

Yeah, the lupron seemed a piece of cake to me to compared to the stims. But just 1 more week of it! You ARE doing great - and don't feel like you have to justify to anyone whether or not you're drinking coffee or wine daily. You concentrate on doing what's best for you.
