Injecting yourself is too hard!

Today I started my follistim injectable meds for my IUI. I thought I would have no problem... I had no fear, no nervousness... until I was holding that needle, hovering in front of my tummy. I couldn't do it! Luckily my dh stepped up and did it. I felt absolutely nothing... but I still think DH will be my designated injector.

On Christmas I'll go in for another ultra sound, and then I think around 12/30 or thereabouts will be my IUI. I'm feeling excited, but keeping my expectations low.

I know exactly what you mean. I remember that moment...holding the needle inches from that pinched skin and thinking about what I had to do...and just holding it there...not doing it...NERVE WRACKING. I was able to do some of them, but my DH wanted to do them so I eventually let him do them all. I think it made him feel better and feel involved. I hope things get easier and get better!
