Best of luck with your first cycle!
Yea the needles are grand once you do it once or twice and get your head around them you'll be fine, there pretty much same as gonal f pain wise!
Bride I'm really not too sure, sorry edited to say it took over a week for my 1-2 to go up to 2-3 and plan to take another digi in a day or two, try not to worry too much. Why don't you try a first response Tomoro and then do another in a day or two to compare the lines, least then you'd be able to see whether it gets darker?
It's really tough going isn't it. my symptoms keep coming and going, I was feeling really nauseous last week but felt fine yest and today. Boobs stopped hurting yesterday but came back a bit today so like you I can't help but worry that they could disappear! Roll on the scans. What date is yours?
