Let the record show that I can do shots anywhere now :). Let the record also show that reclining seats at the movies is a great invention.
The movie was at 6:30. N was next to a single gentleman on his left and I was next to a young lady with her partner on my right. I’m sure she snuck alcohol into the theatre but that’s neither here nor there. At first I was worried about how I would hide whate I was doing from her but the seats were big enough and she was far enough away so it wasn’t an issue.
I got myself comfortable as soon as the movie started laying on my left side facing N, undid my jeans buttons and had my handbag and jacket make like a ring of protection around my tummy area.
It really wasn’t a big deal when it came to injection time at 8:30. It was dark enough to be discrete and light enough for me to see what I was doing. Easy peasy. I’d pre-mixed everything at home so it really was just point an click at that point. I did chuckle at myself when I went to stab in the Gonal-F and it would NOT go in. I tried 3 times. I panicked and told N the needle was too blunt! Then I realised that I’d forgotten to take the second smaller cap off the gonal-f needle. Lol. What a relief.
So yeah, all-in-all a good experience. Next I’ll try somewhere more challenging like evening rock climbing. HAHA.
Emotional: Saddish about random things. Not sure if related to hormones.
Physical: Still headachey but last night started feeling bubbles and pops in my ovary area so I think things are happening.
Food: Last night. Burger and fries (Lord I need to eat better) and popcorn.
