IVF meltdown - I fucked up!

WARNING: many expletives in this post

I just wasted hundreds of dollars worth of meds. Oh, I envy those of you with pen injectors. I was mixing up my 8 vials and didn't realize the needle was loose. When I was mixing the last vial I suddenly had it all over my hands. The syringe was empty! Fuck! Fuck! Fuck! Fuck! Major meltdown. Wailed and sobbed for almost a half hour. Big snotty cry. Ya think I'm hormonal? Nah, my fucking estradiol was at 20 this morning after 5 fucking days of stims! Looking at all those wasted empty vials just freaked me out.

I finally calmed down enough to start over. Got the 8 vials in my belly this time. My head is killing me. I feel like an idiot. If I got this hysterical over this, how the hell am I going to deal with all the other crappy things that can happen? What a joy this will be to tell the clinic about on Thursday.

Have I mentioned lately how much it fucking sucks doing this as a single girl spinster?

Girl... does this mean that you didn't get the drugs in you at all???

If not... SHIT!!!

Is there anything that you can do about it???

I am so sorry sweetie... I remember mixing, and thank the heavens every day for my pen!!!

Hang in there!!

Not from that batch. I had to get out a whole fresh set of vials! You know I am now checking that the needle is secure on the syringe for each vial. I have insurance coverage for this, but I have a $20k lifetime cap for IF treatment. The meds are the most expensive part. My insurance co paid out almost $8k for that big box! I can only hope that the wanding and bloodwork are coded as testing, not treatment. I'm so afraid I won't be able to squeeze a second cycle out of my coverage just because of the meds. If this cycle winds up being cancelled it will be even harder, since I've already used so many $$$ worth of meds.
