So tonight is the big night! I'm supposed to administer my HCG trigger shot tonight at 10:00 pm and I'll have my very first IUI Friday morning. My husband said there was NO WAY he could administer it for me. I had an appointment with my RE yesterday and after I met with a nurse who showed me how to administer the shot. She said since I would be doing it myself it needed to be in my thigh and she recommended icing it for about 10 minutes prior. She said to use the needle like a dart and it needs to go in almost all the way, then release the meds quickly and pull out quickly. Stupidly, I watched a few youtube videos last night to help ease my mind....and they made me feel worse.
Bottom line is I know I'll be able to do it, because I keep focusing on the end result....but I'm VERY NERVOUS right now and have a feeling I'll be super anxious all day until it's over.
Any advice/tips are GREATLY appreciated. Thank you!!
