Trigger Happy

Monday, June 3rd, 2013.  CD23, 9DPIUI.

Hi folks!

I just wanted to check in and let you all know how the trigger-testing is going.

That is, I wanted to let you know that as usual, the trigger is being stubborn, and really isn’t testing OUT as I had hoped.

I’m currently nine days out from my IUI, which puts me eleven days (or ten and a half, technically, since I triggered in the late evening) out from the trigger.  I’m still throwing faint second lines, indicating that the HCG is still in my system.

Here’s the test progression thus far, for your viewing pleasure:

As for side-effects, it’s of course still far too early to tell much of anything.  Anything I may be feeling right now can easily be attributed to the Prometrium, and I suspect that I will continue to feel this way until I stop taking it.

The list of side-effects is fairly extensive at this point, but the biggest annoyances are a random skin breakout, debilitating exhaustion and fatigue, and maddening hunger.  The fact that I’ve suffered from the latter two of these for well over a week point to Prometrium as the cause, though they can also be caused by pregnancy and PMS.

Lovely contradiction, eh?

So that’s about that.  The husband describes me as a narcoleptic T-Rex, tearing through the house all cranky-like in search of food, and then passing out as soon as I’ve eaten it.

Insulting though that might be, it’s not entirely inaccurate.

This week stands to be a busy one, so I’ll update more if I can closer to a realistic test date, though I may opt for Radio Silence as in previous cycles.  Either way, by this time next week, I’ll have an answer.

And so will you.  🙂
