@Evelynmoo What a good idea! I am already bored of lying around. The Valium I took for ET knocked me out for 5 hours after (go figure!) so I will probably be watching a lot of Netflix tonight!
Question for the ladies that have been through a whole cycle: is it ok to travel 3 days after ET? I.e long car trip. I have a wedding out of town and I'm worried about sitting for long periods and then being on my feet a lot but I don't want to pull out either. Physically I'm already feeling fine but is there any kind of risk to the embie or am I just being paranoid?
Great work Evelyn moo, much appreciated!
Evening ladies! I’ll be starting jabbing sometime in the next fortnight and would like some company. This will be my 4th full stim, and I expected it to be easier because I’ve done it before, but 5 weeks ago I lost a twin pregnancy and I don’t think I’ve quite caught up - it’s all been a blur. I also thought I was finally ok with injections and now I’m reading what you’re saying about orgalutran and it sounds like something I’m not going to like! How bad is it? As bad as the day I accidentally jammed the gonal-f needle into my thumb?

littlesunflowers so sorry to hear about your loss Basically the Orgalutran is a thicker needle than the Gonal F, so it takes quite a bit more pressure to push it into the skin. I also found the actual solution stung after I injected it. I used numbing cream from the chemist first (because I wasn't sure if have the nerve to do it otherwise) and that helped a lot!
We'll....our one little egg is at least still in the running on day 3
Just got a call from the lab to say it's exactly where they want to see it on day 3, so now we just wait until Saturday to see if he makes it to blastocyst stage.
@littlesunflowers I am so sorry to hear of your loss. You are a strong lady to be where you are now. I had Orgalutran my first cycle, but this cycle I am on Centrotide which seems to be a bit more of a fuss having to mix the fluid & powder then inject into the syringe. The Orgalutran was fine, quick jab & slow injection. I used an icepack as well pre injection. But I never bruised & only once hit a blood vessel and it bled & stung. Its a simple injection though, no pen or prepping. Good luck..
So sorry to hear of your loss, big hugs.
As hill dweller said, I found orgalutran to be a bit thicker and more blunt needle. It needed a bit more force to jab in but otherwise it was fine. I can't remember which lady has previously mentioned it, but working out the right angle for it does help.
