Trigger tomorrow!


Trigger tomorrow!  This will be my first trigger.  I was pretty grumpy all day, but this is exciting news.  What's it like? 

At work we even had a meeting to discuss how to divvy up my work, since I preform a specialised function in high demand this week.  I felt very special - good thing I don't care too much, I would worry about how I am holding things up!  It does kind of put the pressure on though.  Poot.  As if I don't have enough to worry about.

Follicles are as follows today:

R 20mm
R 16mm
R 14mm
L 20mm

It seems like all this hassle and we're still going to just get two follicles - the same as I had on 50mg Clomid!  What the hay!

And OY today was painful.  Ovaries hurt.  Something I don't discuss too often (TMI), but my colon was just killing me today.  As least that's what I think it is - I think it is spasming.  Ouchy!  I even took a Tylenol, but it didn't help.  I think it is from the pasta last night - but what the heck, it was gluten free!

We narrowly avoided a meltdown when I came home from work - DH is pretty fantastic.  :)

Well, we can hope maybe the trigger was the missing piece of the puzzle, but Dr A didn't seem to think so.

One more complaint (sorry) - my CM is GARBAGE.  By today it should be decent.  WTIF!  Seriously - I have been eating super healthy.  In a fit of panic, I had some cough syrup and chocked down some royal jelly (ugh).  I've been taking my Fer.tileCM vitamins for 3 months now - nothing.


  1. YAY!! Technically it looks like you have 3 - that 16 is mature :-) Keeping my fingers crossed for you! I get that painful feeling in my ovaries and stomach/bowels, too. I hope you get some good CM in the next couple days! Good luck! :-)

  2. I've only done a trigger shot once and it was pretty painless. The nurse put it in my thigh and I was able to go to work right after with no fuss.

    I'm hoping your CM improves too!

  3. Don't worry about your CM, hon...the whole reason for good CM is so that the sperm can swim to the egg easily - IUI serves to deposit the sperm right on top of the egg(s), so no swimming required. It's good to eat well and get lots of rest and (cliche, cliche) relax and be happy - sending lots of good energy your way.

  4. I hope the trigger shot is done by now! Come on follicles do your thing and release those eggs! I remain hopeful, CS!!

  5. WOW- your R is such an over achiever!:)
