We Have Triggered, People

At 8:00:03 PM this evening (Central Standard Time), I injected myself with Ovidrel. Thus, we are in the final stretch of the IVF cycle. Next stop? 8:00 am retrieval on Monday the 17th. Less than 36 hours remain until we make some bebez. I did my last Follistim and Repronex this evening too and boy am I glad to be done with those. I don't want to scare anyone who's about to start stimming, but I'm just exhausted and my belly is not thrilled with me. It's swollen/bloated, bruised and overall I feel a whole lot of pressure between my hoochie coo and my boobies.

But with 15+ follicles growing I'm not surprised. We are so excited and I don't know if Ovidrel (HCG) causes happiness but I feel so optimistic and happy today.

Also I don't think I'll have the discipline to not test out the trigger....and subsequently start testing for a bfp.

Besides, I want to see those two lines just so I remember what it looks like. This is all so exciting!!!!!
Oh, and we're discussing transferring three embryos if we can. Just for the update.

I'll post tomorrow if I get a chance - the first non-shot day since Christmas morning, so I'll be a happy camper - but if I don't I'll let you all know about how the retrieval goes on Monday when I get a chance.


We did a lot of shopping, went on the Budweiser tour and ate at the Old Spaghetti Factory. I will post pictures ASAP too, I'm just trying to post now and make as many comments on other blogs as I can.

Thanks for the support ladies and I'm thinking of all of you and hoping your weekend is going great!

Isn't that the best feeling? No more shots!

I think I will be testing out the hcg too... In case I end up wanting to test myself, I want to be sure.

Would you mind sharing why three embies? Such a nerve-racking decision, right? I hope we made the right decision. (2.)

GL with the retrieval!!!! Take it easy after--- my ovaries got so huge and painful!

Triggering is such an exciting time! I remember our first IVF trigger like it was yesterday--we were so scared we would mess it all up! Ha. Hoping the retrieval goes well and they gets lots of healthy mature eggs!

I'm all caught up, and it sounds like everything is going perfectly now for a very successful retrieval! I'm always happiest the day after trigger, just knowing the possibilities always made giddy. I will be thinking of you tomorrow and look forward to updates! Wishing you the best!

So exciting...good luck on your retrieval! It's really not bad at all, or at least I hope it's not for you.

Congrats! Best of luck with the retrieval (but don't get too hung up over the amount of eggs), and remember to keep drinking gatorade for the next few days!
