After my routine peeing on the stick this morning, there was still no smiley face to see on the ovulation kit.
Throwing some clothes on, I called the dr’s office to let her know I needed the trigger shot.
Once we were in one of those fun gyno waiting rooms, she walked in rolling the shot between her hands to warm up so it wouldn’t sting as much.
When she asked if it was the first one I would have, I half laughed, noting, “This’ll be my sixth.”
Getting it ready, she reviewed our follicles and again said the one that was 20 would be the best bet but there were two &, she wanted me to know, she had no control over how many released. I responded with, “that’s fine, 2, 5, we’re good at this point.” She laughed, Scott said he needed, “some of those salts,” to smell if that were to happen lol
Before coming over to poke my arm, she told us, “I really think this is going to work for you.” & I did what I always do anytime someone tells me that…I half smile for them,not for me, nod my head, & then I look down..trying not to think about all the other times someone has told me that.
When it was all said & done, she smiled & instructed us to, “go home and have a candlelight dinner for the next three nights!” Scott busted into laughter, asking her if that’s what we called it now…men. lol
So that’s our game plan! The trigger shot should work within 24-36 hours BUT, the nurse prac said, “the best chance of getting pregnant is BEFORE ovulation,” so we’ll be having a few of those candlelight dinners just to be safe:P
In addition to the trigger shot & fertility drugs, we’ve also tried some unconventional ways of getting preggo this cycle!
But that’s another story for the next post!
Until then, wish us luck & have a beautiful weekend!!!
