My IUI journey!

Mar 14th, 2012, 13:03 PM   #1
 
So after 20 unanswered calls to the ACU yesterday i finally got my appointment.......

And so my IUI journey has begun

I have a bag full of gadgets, and lots of needles, a sharps bin and an injector pen!

I have my own stash of Menopur injections to use for at least 10 days. We have to mix our own injections too which is a little daunting. But ive had my 1st one and it didn't hurt at all, didnt even sting!

I have 1 injection to keep in the fridge. This will tell my body to release its eggs, and ill be told when to take this one.

I also have progesterone pressaries for after insemination. These one got up the back not the front <-- not looking forward to that!!

My 1st scan is next wed at 9am to check the progress of my follicles, and from then on its gets very exciting!

As said in a previous post i am gonna take a photo of any bruise that may occur from my injections as this is my journey, and if its successfull, i wanna remember it and have everything together.

So now im off to google Menopur side effects.....to see if i need to invest in a fan for tropical moments ha ha.

xxxxxx

GL for the IUI, I'm waiting for my referral for IUI probably about May-June so will be really good to hear your experiences.

It will be 3 years TTC for us in June...... can only hope IUI is our magic wand :o)

Good luck hun, I have just done a cycle of the injections, it's a bit daunting at first but you easily get used to it, I am really bad with needles but didn't mind these ones. The side effects I had were really sore boobs and I felt like my ovaries were swollen. What dose have they started you on? Xx
