Leaking fuel injectors based on what you stated about initial start up, running a fuel pressure leak down test can confirm this. You might want to run a can of SeaFoam through the fuel system just too see if it helps clean the injectors or have them professionally cleaned, might be cheaper than having to replace all the injectors.

When was last time you had a tuneup done ? Maybe fouled plugs
