Injections are NO fun!

Either I am super forgetful in my Advanced Maternal Age, or these shots hurt more this time around.  Once again I was unable to bring myself to administer the shot myself.  I guess the good news here is that we'll never have to worry about me becoming a heroin addict.  I just totally psych myself out. So much so that it takes a good 5 minutes just for me to get to the point that I'll let Mr. W finally stick me with the needle.  I do the countdown backwards from 5, but man, it just sucks!
The first night I forgot to take the follisitm out of the refrigerator to let it come to room temperature before the shot so it was cold and it did burn, but the next night it still burned even though it had been sitting out for 2 hours. Tonight was the best one yet, I could feel the needle prick me going in, but nothing hurt after that. I hope that they continue this way. I shouldn't complain too much though, I know lots of women have to do a lot more shots with a lot more painful needles in order to get pregnant.  Hopefully this little guy will be the extent of it for me.
