Just did my second injection about a half an hour ago. That's one expensive pen all done! I have a tiny little dark bruise from the injection yesterday. Today I can't even see where I did it. I don't know what I did differently. Well, the one thing I know I did differently was that I kept my finger on the plunger until the needle was completely removed! But other than that, I don't know if I did anything differently.
I'm hyper conscious of any small changes in my body which is weird. I feel every twinge and ping and ache. I swear I can feel my ovary pinging every now and then. I don't know if this is just me being particularly hyper sensitive or if it's anything real. I read through the leaflet that comes with the Gonal-F all about the possible side effects and the likelihood of the various side effects. I don't usually find reading such things helpful- it just implants suggestions in your head.
I spoke to the clinic this morning- I have an appointment for a scan midday on Wednesday which will be Day 4 which is when the doctor wanted to see me. So that's good. In other news I was looking through various egg freezing sites last night and I think the best I can hope for is 5-10 eggs. Of course there's a big difference between 5 and 10! I know this is something I shouldn't be thinking too much about. There isn't anything I can do to change what it's going to be. But I know I will be really disappointed if it's 5 or less. Because then even with two cycles I haven't secured very good odds for all this hassle.
However. I will worry about this when I need to worry about it and there is no point in worrying about it now!!
