Negative Emotions

I feel really bad for complaining about the progesterone. I know that this is helping to keep those little embries sticky and I should be grateful. But I am having a really horrible time with it. I don't know when the stick occurred but one has caused a lump at the site and how it hurts to walk and I'm walking with a limp. I haven't mentioned it to the RE yet but have asked to switch from the shots and was told that this is the best course of action for this drug. I hate feeling really negative about the situation but the pain and my focus on it has actually made this 2WW fly by.

I test on Monday and boy am I looking forward to that. I don't want to get my hopes up high because I know just how easy it is to get a BFN and I'm so scared that we will have to do this all over again. The lab only had one embryo to freeze. So I really want this to work but I have seen that every time I'm excited about something and start to share then it all falls apart. I know stress isn't good that's why I have a two hour massage scheduled for Saturday to help take my mind off things.

Here's wishing for at least one sticky embryo.


  1. Wish I had more advice on easier way with the shots. Once you get pregnant your doctor may be willing to change them out for the suppositories? The only thing people kept telling me was to massage the area and help loosen up the muscle.

  2. I can so relate. I literately could not sit down, lay down or walk well because of those shots. Its really the only thing I dread about upcoming IVF#2. My RE also refused to switch me to suppositories. Hang in there and massage massage massage!
