Stick A Fork In Me...

...I'm DONE!

We triggered last night at 10pm. Okay, after a little freak out with trying to get all the hcg into the syringe, it was 10:04pm, but we did it!

I'm set for retrieval tomorrow morning, Friday at 10am.

Wow.

We went in to the office this morning for our last instructions. M. learned how to give me the proges.terone shots, and even gave me a "practice" shot. It didn't hurt nearly as bad as I thought, but I'm sure once he's trying to push that oil in, it'll be a different story. Nurse Peppy and Dr. Hope both wished us luck as we left. It's weird that I won't see them again until the 16th, which is beta day.

I'm scared, excited, nervous, happy, frightened, nauseous, crazy...about every emotion you can have wrapped into one person.

  4. YAY! Big news!! I'll be thinking of you tomorrow morning, hoping for lots and lots of happy, mature eggs (and happy, cooperative sperm that want to fertilize those eggs!).

    I'm glad your practice shot went okay. From my experience, it really seems like the tough part is actually getting the needle through to the muscle on the right part of the hip. There was only once or twice that the actual oil going in was painful, but as long as there was a skilled person inserting the needle, it was mostly no problem (once I got over the insane fear, that is!).

    So excited for you! Great stuff!
