Trouble TTC

Shot myself, woot!

I have to share this little update because it's so huge for me, last night I did my very first self administered trigger shot, and I'm so friggin proud of myself!! I have a TERRIBLE needle phobia, as in, I passed out flat on the floor when I got my ears pierced phobia. But I did it! RE has given all of my past triggers for TI and for first IUI, but she wants to try timing IUI 36 hours post trigger this time so I was on my own. It hurt and I almost threw up after, but it's done and I'm so pleased with myself!

Anyway, IUI 2 is tomorrow morning and I have 1 nice follie on each side, just a little update since I missed checkin yesterday.

Happy Tuesday! Hopefully it won't be too crazy around here...

  • Good Job!  The first one is always the hardest.

    I start Lupron injects for IVF tomorrow, but I'm not too worried since I have given myself my trigger in the past.  I'm a little worried when DH has to give me my PIO shots after ER (They are IM which is usually done in the backside).
