Well, tonight we have started stimming. I have to say, it went better than I expected. I almost forgot about lowering my Lupron dose from 20 to 10. Been doing 20 for so long!! lol Well, I watched the injection video on how to inject Follistim and was kinda nervous since I heard that it has been nicknamed Follisting. I got everything ready to go, did my Lupron and then my Follistim. I actually didn't even feel the needle going in during the Follistim. Medicine didn't bother me either. However I did notice that after about 2 minutes, my belly kinda ached. Nothing horrible though and definitely manageable. Tonight and tomorrow I continue the same regimen of 10 Lupron and 225 Follistim and then back to STL on Monday for blood work. Kinda dreading that cuz it is a 2 1/2 hour drive each way for a probably 5 minute appointment and the weather is to be crappy. May try to go down Sunday night and spend the night but not sure yet.
