Well 35 follies later here I am ready to trigger tonight!! I cannot believe I am fianlly at the end of this journey... I am excited and nervous and everything in between! 11PM tonight I give myself the HCG shot for the last time! 35 hours later I will be there having my eggs retrieved. I gave myself my last cetrotide shot this morning and my last Gonal-f shot this evening... and now my last HCG shot! What an odd thing to experience! What an odd life to live. During my ultrasound today the contortionist requests continued and wouldn't you know it... they weren't good enough! I had to sit on my hands. LITERALLY.. 40 minutes at the end of the ultrasound I couldn't feel my hands. I could barely get dressed! Retrieval will be very interesting because they are going to have fun getting to my left ovary. My acupuncture was great and felt very relaxing.. I started to feel better once I was done. OK enough about me.... onto the really exciting news. My good friend Kat is also triggering tonight! She didn't think this month was gonna work and here she is triggering the same night as me. Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers!!! Her IUI is tomorrow morning and I have everything crossed for her!
