Triggering Tonight!

It's official... The nurse called an hour ago to let me know that I have to take my trigger shot this evening, at 9 pm. ER is set for 9 am on Saturday the 26th, woohoo! I'm so excited to be done with stim shots and Lu.pron shots for round #2...

Slept like crap again last night -- woke up once again around 3 in the morning... that seems to be the "witching hour" for me these days...! Was hot as blazes, too -- which is quite unlike me (am typically always cold). DH swears that it's the hormones... He's probably right.

Today's report: 34 measurable follies -- 22 on the left, 12 on the right. I think there were 22 mature? And my E2 level stayed below 5,000! (Thank you God) It was 4,521. Even the nurse (to whom I don't believe I've spoken with before) commented on how much better I'm doing this round... what a relief!

Now-- if I can just find some good excuse for pulling my DH away from the grad school graduation party we're hosting tonight for one of his co-workers, so he can administer the shot... (I know, another example of GREAT timing!) Any good ideas?

Acupuncture apptmt tomorrow after work, and then it's just take it easy and relax as much as I can before the retrieval early Saturday...

Thanks for all the sweet comments ladies...The encouragement and support means so much.

Dear Lord - please let me get through this party tonight without freaking out about things... please let us get through the trigger shot without any hiccups or disastrous mistakes or issues like last time... please let me get a full night's sleep tonight, so I won't be a zombie-witch tomorrow to my DH/friends/co-workers... am starting to see them back away slowly from me when I walk up, and it scares me that I'm scaring them away. And please Lord, let the retrieval go well Saturday. Let the dr's get some good eggs, let the fertilization process go well, and please let us have some good strong emby's for the ET next week!

Trusting You...


  1. Yes, strong embys for the ET and peace throughout the whole process! Thanks for your encouragement, and I'll be hoping & praying with you.

  2. Woohoo! Doing a little dance!

  3. Thanks for the comment on my blog. We seem to be cycle opposites. I can't get enough eggs and you get too many. Here's to hoping we just get the one (or two) that God has chosen for us! Good luck tomorrow.

  4. Yay!! Praying for you right now as I'm reading this shortly before 9:00!! Praying BIG these next two weeks for you, friend!!! Oh, and the sleep's TOTALLY the hormones. I've had experience. may become your new bff... =)

  5. Stopping by for ICLW and what a better day to leave you a HUGE best of luck for your ER tomorrow! It' going to be ok and you'll have loads of eggs. I've everything crossed! Fran
