I've finally returned from my exile into limbo land after my stint in the April/May thread.
I'm sorry to see some familiar names here (Hi Sariele )... but also happy (and a little jealous) to see so many success stories from the previous threads.
We were due to jab again in July, but I was away on holidays... as much as I was super keen to take my little esky with me, DH was right to let it go and just enjoy a break (and a few... lot of drinks)!
When I have a moment, I will back track through this thread and learn about you all.
In the meantime, and to you all xx

Hi Ms Jo! "Good" to see you in here! (Not good-good, but, well, you know what I mean. ).
Re: the POAS thing, I personally don't see the point in not doing it either. Unless you are having frequest pregnyl injections during the TWW, in that case I can understand. To me, and I've said this before, I would much rather be expecting the worst and getting a wonderful surprise come phone call time, than holding onto hope right up until the second the FN says, "Oh I'm sorry, it's a negative this time." As much of a downer as it was, I was quite 'happy' calling the clinic last time knowing it was a BFN, and I was easily able to shrug off the phone call. I would hate to burst into tears over a stupid call; at least by testing in the days leading up you are able to gradually come to terms with the fact it hasn't worked, so the grief isn't as sudden as waiting for your BT result. JMO, of course.
Plus I'm horribly impatient and would want to be the first to know if it did work.
This cycle I'm planning on getting some ICs so I can test the pregnyl out of my system, and to my heart's content after that.

Thanks kandp, I think I will let the shakes go and just do weight watchers as I know that's a healthy way to lose weight.
Do you put on weight during a cycle because of the hormones?
And I will be injecting for the first time tonight. Any tips on how to cope injecting yourself?

I don't even use a pack, I just use an ice cube. I rub it on the area while DH gets the needle & everything ready for me. He also opens a wipe. I then chuck the ice cube in the sink, quickly wipe the alcohol wipe over the spot, he hands me the loaded gun and I jab. Don't feel it. And he has a tissue or piece of toilet paper ready for me, as I usually get a drop of blood when I pull it out.

I chased DP around the house last night to try and jab him with a clexane injection so he would know how much they sting (wasn’t really going to jab him). Big baby he is. Only a few days and i’m covered in bruises!

As for putting weight on, i think most girls seem to? I have probably put on about 5kgs since i started maybe more. The hormones do affect you and some will make you really bloated. I think for me too, i’m usually too exhausted from the side effects to exercise, and feel sorry for myself and eat chocolate, so not a good combo J
My tip for injecting is just do it fast and don’t think about. They are really pretty easy and don’t hurt much. Try to jab at a 45 degree angle, that seems to minimise bruising/stinging for me. Good luck!

Seriously, your DH won't help? My DH always comes to all the appointments etc too - even just blood tests. He insists on it, very cute. But then again, the only reason I am here going through this is because he has no sperm ... so perhaps that's why he wants to be a part of it & help as much as possible.
