today my measurements were 18.5, 17.8 and 16. not bad, but would it be good enough?
my nurse happened to be in early this morning, so i went ahead and sat down with her to talk about what to expect. (have i mentioned how much i love having a nurse assigned to me? it's so awesome talking to one person that knows exactly what's going on with us!) anyway, she handed me the cup for B and told me that there was a 50/50 chance that i'd trigger tonight. dr. T would have to review all the numbers and she'd call me later.
boy, was i relieved when she called and told me i could trigger tonight. that means i don't have to drive all the way to the clinic in the morning and i don't have to be violated by the va-jay-jay camera again and, more importantly, it means that i get to sleep in an hour and a half. she told me to trigger this evening and got me all scheduled for the IUI friday morning. yay!
about a half hour ago, we pulled the ovidrel out of the fridge, prepared the sharps box, and set up for the shot. B knelt in front of me while i held onto the counter to brace myself. (have i mentioned that i'm afraid of needles? not the i-faint-at-the-sight-of-a-needle kind of afraid, but more of the if-i-don't-watch-it-won't-hurt-so-bad kind of afraid.) i kept my eyes closed tight while i gripped the counter and waited for the pain to begin. it seemed like forever. i was beginning to wonder if he was chickening out. "are you going to inject me or not?" his response: "what are you talking about? i just did!" oh. yeah, i totally knew that.
all you ICLWers sure got here at a good time! thanks so much for all of the wonderful comments and all of the new followers!!! this is my favorite blogging week ever.
