Fragmin makes me blue..
I FREAKED out last night when getting ready for my first injection, Despite the tiny needle, I was still freaked out at the idea. I couldn’t let Dave do it, so I finally just did it myself. Of course the needle did not hurt AT ALL, when putting the drug it burned a little but totally not bad at all, and the needle has an automatic safety retractor, so as soon as the drug is dispensed, it retracts the needle into itself. Cool.
I though, wow, no big deal at all. I couldn’t even see the site I had injected..until this morning.
I awoke with a nice big bruise that just seems to be getting bigger as the day progresses, I guess from the band on my pants rubbing it. So although it dosen’t hurt to administer at all, it seems I will have to live with a polka dot belly for the next few months. Sigh. Well if I get baby outta the deal then it’s worth it.
