Ready? Set? Go!

Yippee!! I’m so incredibly scared excited to start my shots today! It’s CD9, which means that this morning I’m taking my 5th and final dose of 100mg Clomid and this evening I’m shooting myself up with my first day of Menopur. C’mon follies, grow! šŸ™‚

What I’ll need to use today for the shot. šŸ™‚ 

Also – thanks to the advice of Miss Mac, when I talked to the pharmacist in Denver about the filter needles, he was awesome and agreed that I can completely eliminate the glass topped vials that I got with the Menopur from IVFmeds. Instead of having to break that glass and use a filter needle to draw up the diluent, he just gave me a bottle of sodium chloride for $2 and I can use that to dissolve the menopur each day. One less step, which I’m very grateful for since I’ll be doing this alone.

Char flies out this morning for 15 days for work again…I miss him already. Hoping and praying that during his next days off we’ll be finding out I’m pregnant!


  1. Yay, grow follies, grow!! JJ left yesterday too so I see some emails in our future girl!

  2. Needles…you'll get so used to it, you'll miss them when you're done. Use an ice pack on the area of injection to dull any sensation. It's not really a painful process but it helps with any jitters. So exciting! Good luck!!

  3. Yay! So glad everything is a go!!! Let us know how the injection tonight goes..I'm sure you'll be a pro in no time šŸ™‚

  4. How exciting! I hope this solo act goes well for you and you have wonderful news to announce soon!

  5. I am so excited for you!!! Can't wait to hear good news….

  6. Very excited for you!!! You are a badass for injecting yourself and doing this solo.

  7. Oooh…it's begun!Grow Follies Grow!

  9. So exciting!! Grow grow grow!!

  10. I'm so excited for you!!! I have a very good feeling about this. I hope things go well with your first shots.

  11. How exciting!!! Here you go!!!!! I am crossing everything in the hopes that this is YOUR cycle!!!!!

  12. Woo hoo! You are on your way now! You are welcome for the advice, it was passed along to me and I hope the $2 vial saves you from extra headache and hassle from having to break those darn glass things. I also watched a youtube that really helped too- I'll send you a link through email. GOOD LUCK, Grow Follies Grow!

  16. Who ever thought we'd be so excited for needles and drugs. Go get 'em!!!

  17. Good luck with the shot tonight! Menopur was my least favorite of them all.

  18. I have heard great things about Menopur in conjunction with Clomid. My doctor didn't want to give me Menopur (every doctor has their favorite drugs/protocols) but I really hope it works for you!

  19. Good luck! I would be too freaked to do it all with the hubby away. You rock! I told my hubby he can't go out of town if I have to do shots šŸ™‚

  20. Yay, I'm so excited for this cycle! And it is pretty cool that Charlie will be around when you will probably be finding out the results of the cycle.
