Terrific Tuesday: Now with MORE SHOTS!

Tuesday, July 31st, 2012.  CD15.

You know that old saying about how expectations are the source of all disappointment?

Yeah.  That one.

So at this morning’s monitoring ultrasound, things sounded pretty good.

I have three decent-looking follies: a 17.5, a 15, and a 13.

My lining is 12.5, which the NP said is “freaking amazing – good enough for triplets!” (Umm… GAH!).

So when the doc called to let me know the plan, I expected him to tell me to trigger tomorrow.


I am to continue the Menopur tonight and tomorrow night, and unless I get a positive OPK result, I am to Trigger on THURSDAY.

While I’m happy that they are letting things mature before triggering, I am not so enthused about the SHOTS.

I mean, come on.  I had to shoot up in a public bathroom at a baseball game last night.  Jeez.

Oh well.

Big girl panties are on.

Bring on the needles.

    Sorry, sweetie, but yeah, they usually like them between 18-20 before triggering…and so he’s basing the trigger off the rate of growth thus far. Only two more days. You can do it. 🙂 Just be happy you only have one shot per day!

      That’s the truth! I am glad they are being careful, but UGH. I’m tired of this already, LOL.

      That doesn’t bode well for the future, does it? 😉

    That’s great though that your doctor is really letting the follies have the best chance of developing (not for your pain levels, but for your chances!). Good luck!

      Don’t get me wrong, I am happy he is taking his time and letting this play out this cycle, but WOW. I really thought I would be used to stabbing myself by now, haha.

      One day at a time, I guess! 😛

    Congrats for being able to do the shot at a baseball game! I don’t think I could do that. You’re almost there – yay!! Grow follies grow!

    Shooting up in the restroom of a baseball game is the worst! Just so dirty. That’s the bathroom stall shot I had to do that I remember most as well!! Hang in there.
