Firsts and Lasts

First shot of Follistim tonight. I was pretty apprehensive about it. It took me a good 5 minutes to work up the courage to actually stick myself. At one point I gave the pen to B but I didn't want him to do it. After all, I am a trained medical professional. Of course, after it was over, I realized it's not that bad at all and I can do it, I will do it and it will work, if not this month, some day.

Last day of ICLW. I really enjoyed my first one and look forward to doing it again next month. I loved reading everyone's comments on my blog and they have inspired me to become more positive about my situation. I am going to really make an effort to not be such a Debbie Downer. I found lots of good blogs and am excited to follow everyone's journey through the land of IF. Here's to hoping we all make it off the island!


  1. Congrats on your first inject! Not so bad right? Although I still haven't given myself one yet. I contemplated it tonite and sat with it for about five minutes and called my husband in to do it! May this be the cycle for the both of us!

  2. I'm so glad I found your blog during ICLW! I'm sending many good thoughts your way for this cycle!

  3. Thank you for your comments on my blog. I am looking forward to being a follower of your journey.
    Yeah for you on your first inject! It is an intimidating thing at first but it gets better with each shot. The Follistim pen is very user friendly and I found myself thankful for the smaller needle! You should be very proud of yourself for giving yourself your first shot!
    Also, I like your attitude about trying to be positive about your situation but don't forget that we are all here to support you and this is a safe place to be Debbie Downer if you are having one of those days.
    Wishing you the best this cycle!

  4. Glad to hear you decided to try the injects cycle!! I'll be following along.
