    Default About to start IVF...scared to death!

    Hello all,
    Reading some of these threads makes me realize how many women struggle with this and how much I have to learn. I've just gone through months of what seems like endless testing to get me ready for IVF. The last one, an endometrial biopsy, was so horrific that I wanted to call it all off.

    Now I'm facing starting the stimulation injections by myself ( my husband is in the military and often gone). I'm so scared I won't be able to do it, or I'll get it wrong or something. Can't sleep because of all the anxiety/stress.

    Also really resent comments that if I'm not up to doing this, I must not really want a baby. Ugh.just feeling bad!

    Any advice or words of encouragement out there?

    Hi Tjarh3! You wrote this a few days ago. How are things going now? I am a major wimp when it comes to needles, so totally am with you on how intimidating the stimulation injections can be! I didn't know if I could do it, but somehow I have been finding the strength. I am actually not as anxious as I was at first. I am on day 7 and it feels like I've been doing it forever! Hope all is going well for you.
