I just had my trigger shot. 8 follicles have grown – which is just amazing on such low dosages of medicine. I’m not comfortable at all – I feel like my ovaries are huge bags of rocks. My doctor gave me an extra night of stimulation drugs to get a few more to grow and it worked. Tomorow afternoon we will have our first insemination and then on election day morning we will have the second. I should ovulate at approximately 9:45am on Tuesday – 36 hours after the trigger shot. Again, I don’t have a great deal of hope – the odds are something like 8% to 17% that this will work- this was more an exercise in medication experimentation and I’m happy with the results.
I do have to pinch myself when I start daydreaming that maybe, just maybe we’ll get boy/girl twins out of this but that would be like the Mets winning the world series.
