Trigger shot was tonight! It’s moving a little faster than I was expecting after yesterday’s appointment. But it looks as though my retrieval will be Thursday now. I’m really excited, the only thing that is sort of a bummer is that my husband leaves tomorrow for the UK for 5 days to play a couple festivals, so he won’t be here for the retrieval. He should be back in time for the transfer, though, so that’s more important.
The trigger shots were not bad, I had to take 2 Ovidrel. I think the needles were a tiny bit thicker than the others I’ve been taking because they took me a lot longer to get in. The good news is that they didn’t sting at all like the Menopur. I’m starting to get REALLY nervous about the stupid Estradiol shots I have to do every 3 days starting the day after retrieval, though. They are the ones that have to go in the bum, and they are intramuscular. 😦 I’m a bit of a control freak, I feel like even if my husband would have been here to give me all of my shots, I still would have wanted to do every one by myself. And I’m a total diaper baby when it comes to needles, getting the tiny ones in my blub is hard enough for me. I can’t imagine how I’m going to get these torpedos in my arse, especially without a running start or muchas margaritas.
