IUI #2 CD3 (first shot)

I took this title theme from Krista and have been thinking of her today. She found out her FET didn't work after her first cycle that started in January. She has been on a long journey to this point already.

 I started my Gonal-F this evening with 75 IU's. I didn't realize how much Gonal-F we actually had since it has been sitting in the back and bottom of our fridge for about 5 months. We have 3 900 pens and 1 300.

We actually had a "practice pen" that I was given during my IVF training. W practiced on a grapefruit since it was going to be different than holding a small syringe like Lupron and Ovidrel. It was hard to push it in, but he figured it out and did a great job with the shot. It didn't sting or get red or anything. So far so good (hard to mess it up at this point).

I have an appointment scheduled for Tuesday at 7:45 so we will see how things are going. It is going to be a busy day with getting up early and driving into Syracuse along with 2 meetings for work. Needless to say, I won't be making much money that day.

On Friday and Saturday this week I will be going to a continuing education course for work. I am looking forward to it and hoping to add some goodies to my "bag of tricks". The topic is feeding therapy through a sensory motor approach.
