At first I was more nervous about getting the injection pen ready. The pharmacy I used has online videos so I watched them again before getting everything ready.

After the needle was ready and my stomach was drying from the alcohol I started to shake a bit. DH had to calm me a bit and then left the room. To be totally honest I did not feel the needle at all! My finger pricks for blood sugar hurt more. I had to change hands in order to get the injection button to work but it was nothing. A tiny drop of blood and that was it.

Now I do the meds every night at 6pm until I have the follow-up u/s next week. My dosage may change at that point. I did buy some extra alcohol swabs as they only give you 12 and I figured I would need more then that - at least 3 per injection and 4 if I have to put a new cartridge in.

Today's needle stung just a touch, think it was the alcohol and not waiting long enough for it to dry.

Good luck, I have a serious needle phobia so I take my hat off to those who are able to give them selves injections for medical reasons.
