I just got back from the RE and I will be triggering tonight between 7:30 - 10:30pm for a retrieval on Thursday AM! I am excited/nervous. A couple questions for you ladies -
1) For my IUIs, I triggered with Ovidrel which was easy enough to administer myself. This time around, they prescribed me an intermuscular HCG trigger. Have any of you done this injection yourself? It seems a bit intimidating looking at the length of the needle and knowing it has to go in my behind. I have the option of hiring a nurse for $75 to come do it for me. Do you think it is worth it to hire a professional?
2) I am super nervous for the retrieval. My clinic seems to be pretty laidback about prepping (for example - I asked if I should lay off the perfume, nail polish, etc beforehand and they said no). Any tips y'all have to help me prep and calm down is greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance!!!
