OH. MY. GOD.
And I thought I had a fear of needles before! The nurse today took three goes to get my blood, I nearly passed out and vomited simultaneously, and I now have a nasty bruise on my arm, all of which I get to repeat on Saturday and then thrice-weekly... so totally my idea of fun.
Also had my ultrasound done. You would think that these people would be able to show a little empathy, coming in day 2 of your cycle (yes that means you have your period), to have what is affectionately termed 'dildo cam', to advise you on what to do. Nope, you have to ask and feel humiliated. It's not like it's a one-off event, every woman needs this ultrasound on day 2 to make sure everything is okay, grow a brain and tell us what to do!
So I have to start injections tomorrow, am freaking out a little over it all. I know I can do it, I have to do it, it's not like I have much of a choice!!! But I am worried about it. Am going to do them in the morning so I don't spend all day dreading them.
This is a video I found of what I'll have to do. God bless youtube.
