I gave myself my first-ever Follistim shot yesterday evening. The shot itself was not as bad as I'd feared. It stung a little because I was too impatient and didn't let the pen reach room temperature, but compared to the horrible stinging I had with my first hCG shot, it was a piece of cake. I also took my first dose of Clomid for this cycle last night before bed.
Last night I woke up FOUR times to pee. (Once or not at all would be more usual for me.) And woke up one other time in a sweat. I blame both of these things on the meds. Has anyone else experienced this?
Today I feel normal. I'll be taking my second injection and dose of Clomid this evening. Fun, fun.
Tomorrow I am beginning a little weight loss challenge with some friends. I do need to lose weight, and it should be a good way to take my mind off my fertility (or lack thereof) during this cycle.
EDITED TO ADD: I was once again "slapped in the face" by the fertility of two new Facebook "friends." One is a police officer who I knew as a prosecutor; he and his wife posted an ultrasound photo of their baby boy. The other is a law school classmate of mine. He and his wife had a little girl while we were in law school, and on his profile, I noticed photos of him with the little girl and with two little boys who appeared to be twins between ages 2 and 3. I wrote a brief message on his Wall asking if he had three children now. His response: "yes, and number four is on the way in December." [sigh]
