So, I was tentative as to if I was going to post this or not, because I'm so freaking superstitious, but I decided to go for it.
We are triggering tonight at 9:00pm. My favorite nurse drew an X marks the spot on my butt for my H so he could hit the right spot! I'm nervous about side effects of Novarel, did anyone have any?

My E2 today was 2,027 up from around 1600 yesterday. I'm feeling a little queasy, is that normal?
If you are a prayer, please say one for me, if not- please send good thoughts my way for the next few days' events!
Thanks so much for all your support ladies :)

    Sending lots and lots of prayers your way Sunny!! I'm so excited for you! :-)

    The queasiness is normal unfortunately, it's the increased estrogen making you feel yucky. No side effects from trigger shot for me. Just enjoy your one shot free day tonight! :-) are they putting you on PIO?

    Thanks lady :) Yes, we're starting PIO on Thursday. Oh goodness, that's a big shot haha.
    Yes it is! And they never seem to end!! When you do PIO, have hubby pinch the skin tight so it doesn't hurt so bad, and have him rub it afterwards to minimize the welting. After about a week the area will be super numb and feel weird, but at least the pinch factor will go down a bit. Good luck at ER! I will be stalking the board waiting for your update :)
