OK this is it! I am starting my first day of medication, which was actually yesterday morning (January 10th). Am I excited? YES!!!!!!!! Because this time I am in a different place. When I did my last round of injections for IUI I was a little slob-kabob about them, meaning I didn’t create a peaceful and calming environment around me. I did my injections in a closed bathroom which felt like it was a dirty little secret. I didn’t have a positive mantra before each shot and I basically felt like I was alone doing them.
This time around I am out in the open, I have my husband filming the injections even through he has to close his eyes while I do it. I am in a different mind set and I have connected with so many other girls going through IVF at the same time it gives me encouragement and strength. You can see below how I set up my IVF injection area for my morning injection of Follistim and evening injection of Menopur.
