Lumps and Bruises

By SEO Admin on October 12, 2009

With the exception of being longer than an IVF cycle, this FET cycle has been so much easier that I can hardly believe it. My transfer was the same as the IVF cycle. I have continued the progesterone injections with a few incidents. The nurse recommended that after the injection I move around for about 20 minutes. Twice I have not followed this advice and lived to regret it. When I dont move around, I get a hard lump that feels very sore and lasts for 4-5 days. The nurse recommended a heating pad which I have been using every night and it has really helped, even when I stay active after the injection. I have also had a few that have bled and created dark bruises. They dont hurt, but look quite garish. I decided to be brave one night and try injecting into my thigh. It wasnt as bad as I thought it would be and has given me two more injection sites to rotate. And a few times, some of the progesterone has leaked out after the injection. The nurse has assured me this is normal. My pregnancy test is this week and I am anxious to get the result, but I am not cheating this time. I learned my lesson last time.
