Let the Shot Really Begin

The Lupron is going well. I added the Menopur this morning and that was fine too. It burned slightly so I went really slow. Tonight I will add the Gonal-F. The shots aren't too bad, the needle is really small so it's not as bad as I thought it will be. I just keep thinking to myself that I just hope it all works out. I am not going to exercise as much and at times not as all. I did run this morning before the shots but I won't run tomorrow I will only walk. I also will not be having any alcohol. I had one beer last night but that's all for me. I plan on drinking a lot of water and trying to eat the best I can eat especially when traveling, that will be hard. My u/s and labs is schedule for Tuesday and we are leaving for Denver on Wednesday. Here are a few drug pics. My husband and I sent the second pic to some of our friends and family who know what we are going through. We try to have a sense of humor through this.


  1. LOL!! Love it!! I found that ice helps before the shot :) Yay for follies! Good luck!

  2. Yeah - the Menopur stings - you'll get used to it.

  3. Love the pics. :)

    The menopur burned one of the days for me, but not the other six. Maybe it had to do with where you injected it or something. Hopefully it won't burn today.

    YAY for going to Denver this week!!!

  4. lol!!! That 2nd pic is too funny! Shots used to have a whole different meaning before IF treatment, hunh?!? :)

  5. Good luck! BTW, I've done 5 IVF cycles at CCRM (I'm also an out-of-town patient) so if you have any questions, let me know. I think their medical care is absolutely the best and feel so lucky to have been able to use them!
    Fingers crossed for you!
