Per.formance Anxiety

Giv.e it to me hard and fast and DO NOT pull out until I say so!

She pulled out. I didn't say so. Maybe my hand got in the way when I looked down, who knows.
But as a result I got stabbed twice. Poor thing, she had per.formance anxiety.
This morning, my love is on a jet plane and I'm back to injecting myself. I think I like it better this way (no offense baby) but at least I know I'm not going to pull out.
It's just that she hates to hurt me...she really, really, hates those needles. And I hate being poked more than necessary. So there you have it.

Tomorrow I go in for blood work and my first ultrasound to see how jacked up my follicles are. I can't wait!!!

poor thing! i'm sorry that you have been getting the pincushion treatment!

you are a brave soul for being able to stick yourself!

Wow...you are more brave than I. I cannot inject myself and fortunately my wife should have been a nurse or doctor b/c she is amazing. No pain, right on target. Good luck with the retreval!

total new meaning to *pulling out*. it used to be, in my young pseudo-hetero life, what the guy said he'd do so you *wouldn't* get pregnant ;)

let's hope those follicles are dancing and ready to go!

Have you tried pushing it in slowly and gently? I never felt a thing. Hope all is looking good on the inside at your U/S later.

H and I would always sort of have a little tension when we were doing the injections. I did always like her to the sticks however. It is brave to be doing them yourself. I hope those follies are juiced. xo. L.

Hi there - how was your u/s yeseterday? How's everything looking in there?

haha I wouldn't even be able to try - as much as my K hates needles and the thought of injecting herself, the thought of me doing it is ten times worse (this goes back to an unfortunate leg waxing incident early in our relationship. Turns out my reassuring smile before ripping wasn't so much reassuring as creepy lol)
