Who likes 'em? Not me. I wouldn't say I am afraid of them...just don't particularly care for them. Today, however, I gave myself my 1st shot. I was so nervous, thinking it was going to kill to puncture my stomach with this super sharp needle. Actually, surprisingly, the puncture was barely noticable...the only part that was slightly uncomfortable was the pressure put by pushing the fluid from the syringe into the skin. But, I better get used to it...its going to be twice a day for who knows how long (likely a few weeks)and then more shots after these are done. Uggg...The measures we have to go to in order to have a baby!!
