And It's Off to the Races!

First stim injection of Menopur this morning.  I had a little trouble getting the diluent out of the vial, but finally got the hang of it.  It stung a little bit more than the lupron, but it wasn't as bad as I anticipated.

Little inspiration reading for today:

Stop trying so hard to make it happen.  Stop doing so much, if doing so much is wearing you out or not achieving the desired results.  Stop thinking so much and so hard about it.  Stop worrying so about it.

We can take positive action to help things happen. We can do our part.  But many of us do much more than our part.  We overstep the boundaries of doing our part into controlling and coercing.

Do your part in relaxed, peaceful harmony.  Then let it go.  Just let it go.  Force yourself to let it go if necessary.  "Act as if."  Put as much energy into letting go as you have into trying to control.  You'll get much better results. It may not happen.  It may not happen the way we wanted it to and hoped it would.  But our controlling wouldn't have made it happen either.

Learn to let things happen because that's what they'll do anyway.  And while we are waiting to see what happens, we'll be happier and so will those around us.

  1. Good luck this cycle! And thanks for the reminder...from a queen control freak :)

  2. Yay! Glad to see things are moving forward for you.

  3. Glad the Menopur injection went OK. I found it stung a bit too. I also found it frustrating the first few times trying to get it all out of the vial, but got the hang of it pretty quick!!

  4. Thanks guys! I just did my first Follistim Pen injection. It was a little easier to load than the menopur. I think I am going to run out of injection sites on my belly. Did you get bruised up? Did you use the front of your thigh at all?

  5. So glad things are going well....and if that is you in the picture I give you majors props for injecting yourself!! Just keep switching the time you are done with a few days you should be able to go back to the same area no prob. I had bruising but never went to my thigh. Best of luck!!
