I did it!

I gave myself my first shot yesterday and all my worrying was for nothing.  It felt like little more than a bug bite.  I had to syke myself up in the doctors office before I could do it but after sitting for several minutes saying I can do this I did.  I will continue to take this medicine through the 1st of December when I see the doctor again for my training on the next meds I will be taking.  I have to learn to mix them properly.  But after than I will be giving myself 3 shots a day (holy crap yeah)  Now the bad news.  This new medicines side effects include hot flashes, increased sweating, night sweats, tiredness, and trouble sleeping.  Needless to say last night was rough.  I woke up about every hour and a half - two hours drenched in sweat and shivering.  I do have to say that even though the previous birth control I was on for this was making me tired it was nothing compared to how I feel today.  I do know it will be worth it in the long run..

High Anxiety

So as tomorrow approaches my anxiety has become worse and worse.  I've been having heart racing and feeling weak in my arms and legs.  Just all together freaking out about it.  I know it wont be bad at all in the long run but I cant seem to tell my body that.  So that on top of the birth control making me sleepy has left me exhausted the last few days.  I find that if I can keep my mind busy that its not as bad.  Needless to say I have logged a lot of hours on Skyrim the last couple of days.  Its been impossible to make my mind turn off at night so I am having trouble sleeping and my body is in a state of constant anxiety so I am having tons of nightmares and have been waking up in cold sweats every night.  Luckily this should pass and be over tomorrow.

injection training

So I have my doctors appointment on Tuesday to start my first injection.  They are going to train me then so I can do it on my own.  I'm super nervous.  I'm not afraid of needles but the thought of giving myself a shot makes my stomach fluttery.  Wish me luck guys.

I have to say this birth control they have me on makes me so sleepy!  I am not one for napping but the past few days of taking the meds I have napped at least every other day which is sooooo unlike me.  I detest naps and feel they waste the day so for me to take naps so often is unheard of.  Only a few more days of taking it.

Calendar of events

So saw the doctor this morning and they drew blood for my baseline tests and I will start taking the birth control in the morning.  On the 22nd of November I will begin my injections and should get my period around the 2nd of December and have the final set of baselines and ultrasound taken care of.  Then early in the week of December 12-16 will be when they do the retrieval of the eggs and later that week will be the transfer of the embryo.  So that means this will be one amazing birthday present for me!!!!!!!  I will keep you guys posted of any developments.
