I’m currently on 2 shots every evening- 350iu of Gonal-F and 20iu of hCG. Today I get to step it down to 300iu of Gonal-F. The hCG isn’t too bad but the Gonal-F shots are a gauge or two bigger and sting like hell going in! I yelp every time. According to my chart I have another week of this with 4 days of a bonus THIRD shot. arrrrgh. This sucks.
I go in on Wednesday for an ultrasound to see how things are progressing. My projected possible trigger date is next Monday. After that it’s just pills and suppositories. I’ll be so glad to get these shots over with!
At least I’ve found that icing the area first helps a lot. As does pinching a fat roll. I forgot the ice yesterday and holy crap I will not be doing that again.
