After having to self-inject on Friday (= nightmare), B got to give me the next shot last night.
I've never thought something was so heavenly in my life. I didn't have to prepare the needles, iced myself to numbness, got to look away while he did this and I didn't feel a thing. Not even after (where I sometimes feel stinging). It was remarkable.
I wonder if ice really is the trick. And really can't believe I didn't think of that sooner.
Day 11 appt tomorrow so we'll know whether we trigger or not for a Thurs IUI. Hope everything is looking good.
I feel much more at peace about all of this now. (Maybe it's the hormones - the good ones - talking...). I think knowing that this is IUI #3 and that we said we'd re-assess after #4, makes it seem like some outcome is going to happen sooner and it's not this big hole. At least for now.
If we have the IUI on Thurs or Fri, I'm hoping that running a 1/2 marathon on Sunday won't be bad... I hear not to do activity the day itself, but a few days later shouldn't matter, right?
Any advice out there on this??
