Day 3 - Two-a-days.

Today I started my protocol of twice daily injections of the Follistim and the Menopur.  I had to watch another video this morning to learn what to do with the Follistim.  Unlike Menopur, which you have to reconstitute and draw into a syringe, Follistim uses a nifty pre-mixed injectable pen.  Both get injected in my stomach below the belly button and I alternate between my right and left sides.  The injections need to be about 12 hours apart and so I've decided on 7:00a/p.  I am scared I am going to forget about this new daily ritual, so I've set an alarm on my phone.

It's hard to explain but I can definitely tell that something is up with my belly.  It feels bloated and tight and honestly my jeans were snugger today.  Also, I don't know if it's possible for the hormones to have already taken over, but I got irritated this morning at something that I normally wouldn't even have registered with me.  I could feel myself getting upset and the tears started so I decided I better go workout to try to release some of the tension.  I ugly girl cried hard the entire 15 minute ride to the gym but was fine for the rest of the day.
