Thar she blows

Well, my lining measured 9 and showed a triple stripe, so we're off and running.  The first FET of my life will be next week, Tuesday May 9th.  That means....

Progesterone in Oil (PIO) injections start tonight.

Oh how I've put off thinking of this. I'm hoping that the build-up in my mind (and yes, I've been conjuring images of whales being harpooned) makes the shot feel like a pinch.

"Thar she blows" I said to Viking, waking up this morning.  We stayed up late last night watching freedom fertility injection videos.  Some couples just watch porn.  We watch women getting stabbed in the ass (excuse me, the upper quadrant of the buttock).  By really big needles.


  1. Ice pack before and after for a few minutes and massage the area immediately after the injection to avoid oil build up which causes bruising. I have done weeks upon weeks of these and it's not that bad. You got this! Good luck!

  2. I agree -- 8 minutes of ice before was the magic number for me. I rarely felt anything.

  3. Thanks all, iced before then heat afterwards. So far so good! I love it when a shot is underwhelming.
