Heartstrings a lot of us including myself hate needles. I just finished my first icsi cycle today. Had transfer today.The injections are no where near as bad as I was expecting and for me to say that is huge! After the first one I was so surprised that it wasn't that bad. I tried using a icepack on the area to be injected on skin for 5 mins before the needle which my hubby did. It helped so much that at times I dint even know it had been done, I also tried without the ice and it still wasn't that bad though I stuck to the icepack as I found it made a difference. There were times that doing all injections and blood tests and ultrasounds started to get to me, I was tired, emotional ect but I just kept thinking to myself how much my hubby and I wAnted a baby and that how it was worth it I would do anything to have a child. Try keep that in your mind when times get tough.I did a bit of screaming and crying after EPU and transfer, EPU I had a general anesthetic as I am a chicken and did not want to be awake for the procedure . Transfer everyone's different, I found it a little painful but it was over and done with in two mins and once done I had nil pain just excitement that this could turn out to be my first pregnancy and actually have a chance to have a little bubba.
