IVF - Nervous about the shots

I am going to be going through my first IVF in January 2009. I have been doing a lot of research and there just seems to be so much to think about. Does anyone have any suggestions on how I can relieve my anxiety about the whole situation. Are the shots as bad as they sound? Thanks.

Try to relax. The shots are

Try to relax. The shots are not as bad as they sound. Don't worry.

I appreciate you responding

I appreciate you responding but this is a very important step for my husband and I. I am sure it is not as bad as it sounds but I have anxiety every morning when I wake up and think about going in for the procedure. Just looking for people who have gone through the same thing and what they did to prepare and to ease their minds. Thanks.

I hope this link helps:
