One my first cycle I started doing them right before I was about to sit on the couch and wind down for some TV at night. On the advice of one of the nurses I switched to doing it right after dinner. I would massage and heat after injection and then walk around to do whatever chores I had to do and that seemed to help with the absorption. What size needles are you using? I also switched to one inch needles. If your BMi is on the lower side that might help too. Good luck.
