Well, I really got myself good last night. I am not sure what I did, but my Menopur shot hurt like a son of a you know what. Usually, the poke itself doesn't hurt, just the meds going in. Last night, the poke hurt and then of course, the meds felt like fire going into me. I started bruising about five seconds after the needle was out, so I know I did something wrong. The only thing I can figure is that I had some medication on the needle tip from checking the flow and that there was more than usual. Burned, burned, burned. I had to take a minute before I could attempt to inject the Follistim, but luckily, that went in nicely. I just finished my first cartridge!
I was definitely uncomfortable in the ovary region last night. It has gone from twinges and tweaks to more of a pulling sensation on the right side and an ache on the left and these dull cramps that kind of feel like AF is on her way (she had better not be). I had to drag out the ol' heating pad and crank that baby up. It actually didn't help much and I finally just went to bed early. This morning, I feel better, although I am starting to notice a bit of a bloat. I also find myself to be way more emotional. I am always a bit of a softie, but when I went to pick out an "anniversary" card for my husband, I ended up crying over the selection and unable to pick just one that expressed my feelings for him. It was actually kind of funny and I am glad that no one else chose to go down that aisle during my little outburst.
I have my first ultrasound check today to see how my ovaries are responding to the medications. PLEASE let this be another day of perfect. I can definitely feel something going on down there, now let's just hope it is the right amount of something.
