Giving Myself IM Shots!?!?

So while this isn't yet a definite, I think I might have to give myself some IM shots this time around. Yikes, even the thought of it makes me nervous but a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do I suppose. 

E's new job requires him to travel a few days per month. So far we've gotten lucky and he hasn't been out of any of the big appointments. But what that likely means is that I'll be needing to figure out how to stick myself with a 3in needle on a regular basis - in the rear mind you. I can do this, I know I can but I'm still terrified.

Anyone have any tips for doing these yourself?


  1. You can do it!!! I've only done the trigger shot in my tummy. I thought it was going to be awful, it took me awhile to get up the guts, but I barely felt it. I hope it is easy for you!

  2. Ooooh ouch. I hate doing clexane but I just close my eyes and do it. Make sure you have ice on standby. Hugs!!!
