IVF Day 2

I woke up with a headache :( Is it a side effect from the Follistim? And unfortunately I don't own tylenol. I've been an ibuprofen girl my whole life - I just love it so much! But, my Doctor said I can't take any ibuprofen during IVF, only tylenol. So I had to run to the store on my way to work and get some tylenol. After taking it (and a Diet Dr. Pepper) my headache is mostly better from a 5/10 to a 2/10.

The injection last night went pretty well. I was inspired by Emily and have declared that my husband shall seranade me with "shots shots shots shots shots..." each evening. Last night he seemed a little tentative, but I hope his enthusuasim will improve. The actual shot went pretty well. The needle didn't hurt, but the medicine stung a bit going in and for maybe 20 minutes afterward. I am using the follistim pen. Once I pushed the needle in to my pinched stomach I injected the medicine at a moderate pace and then left the needle in for about 10 seconds before taking it out. When I pulled the needle out one clear drop came out of the injection site, is that normal? Should I inject the medicine slower/quicker or leave the needle in longer? I realize it might not be that much medicine, but since it costs so much I was to get every last drops worth :)

I have enjoyed the circle + bloom meditations that I have listened to so far... other than at one point when I was deep in meditation, my husband came and stood with his face 2 inches away from mine for a minute and i didn't respond so he poked me, which brought me out of my peaceful state to see his face right infront of me and I hadn't realized he was there because I was so relaxed... I think I might have screamed lol.

I found myself in surgery today with a room of pregnant ladies... I'm taking it as a positive sign.
