Dear Follistim Pen, I Have Not Missed You...

I have really enjoyed these last three months without having blood work done (what feels like almost every other day), taking fertility medication, trigger injections, and uncomfortable IUI's.

We are back at it now. I had an appointment on Friday for blood work and an ultrasound. I got the call last night that we are good to go. Unfortunately there was an issue with insurance, so I couldn't get the Follistim covered by insurance in time to start taking it. Then I called back last night to say that I was willing to pay the $315 if I could get reimbursed on Monday when it is covered. By then it was too late for them to send it with their driver to be delivered tonight. So, I had to take a 2.5 hour round trip drive to pick it up from the pharmacy this morning/afternoon. What a pain!

Tonight I started my Follistim injections. Grow follies, grow. My next appointment is on Wednesday.

Have a great rest of your weekend, everyone!

I am not looking forward to being a human pin cushion.. but it will likely be happening soon. Is it painful? or does it GET painful?
