Action in the right ovary...

I think the meds are working. I hope the meds are working. My right ovary is showing signs of some twinges of pain...which is good. As of last week, my right side had the majority of the follicles...so I hope the follicles are growing so big and that there are so many of them that I am running out of room.

The shots are going OK. A friend of mine suggested me icing the spot where I stick. And, I want to hit myself up side the head and say DUH! I have never used ice on my shots but we offer that as advice to our clients who have MS because their treatments for the disease involve shots...and we suggest ICING the injection site. Ugh, stupid me.

I did ice the stick site and i didn't feel the needle or anything, but my Bravelle and Menopur really burned going in and for a few minutes afterwards...I wonder if that had anything to do with me icing the site? Who knows...it isn't terribly bad...I think the psychological stress is worse than the stick.

I am off again tomorrow due to weather. We still have about 5-6 inches on the ground. I have one full day of shots before my appointment on Thursday. I am getting anxious to see how the follicles are coming along. I need A LOT! They will measure them and see how well they are maturing as well.
