I Screamed Like a Girl

Since I was little, I've always loved roller coasters. And the best part of the free fall is screaming all the way down. I've also noticed that if you yell while you're getting a shot, it doesn't hurt as much. Of course, warn the person that is giving you shot that you're going to scream and that they shouldn't panic or think they're doing something wrong. You're just screaming so that you're not thinking about the shot you are enduring. It doesn't hurt as much. At least that's what I've convinced myself.
Tonight was my last HMG shot. No more until next month (if this month doesn't work). All day today I've been having weird ovary pains. At least I think they're ovary pains. Tomorrow I go in for an appt with Dr. G to see what state my ovaries are in and what is the next step. I'm hopefully optimistic.
I'm on square 71 of Chicklet's blanket. I was hoping to have it done this past weekend, but now I'm shooting for this weekend.
I'm so glad it's finally going to be Friday! This week has gone by so slowly. Hope you all have a great weekend.

That is so cool you're making a blanket- my sister said she'll make one for our first baby! I thought it was interesting that you commented that the best part of roller coasters is the free fall on the way down (I totally agree!). Isn't it ironic, then, that we all hate the "downs" that infertility puts us through?

(I hope my comment didn't come off the wrong way...It was a really interesting parallel/comparison that came to mind!) I'm sure if I do injectables, I will keep your suggestion of screaming in mind!

A - I think for me getting a BFP would be more like the free fall on the way down. You don't need to scream when you experience it, but it makes it all that much better ;).
