Oh Katie- yuck!!!!!!!!! I am sorry- having it for just 1 round was bad enough! Thing is, they want you to keep nursing/pumping so that the infected ducts can clear- I know it sucks (no pun intended) but check with your doc because stopping now may make it even worse (if you can imagine!) Rio- ugh!!!...

Weezie- I' am soo sorry about the colic- it must be heartbreaking to hear him cry that much- I hope the meds resolve his discomfort. Does the BF not soothe him? take care of yourselves and don't stress- you'll make the right decisions for all of you- your peace of mind and comfort are as important a...

Ask your doctor for Lidocaine cream- put it on about 20-30minues before your shot- put some plastic wrap over it(so it doesn't rub off on your clothes) and voila! no pain!
however- after about 8weeks of it- it hurts no matter what

best to you !!

My REs used 3dt- and I asked why not 5dt - they said this was the protocol they developed and have had great success rates well, after 1st IVF, I am ho...
