Blue was a champ with the trigger shot! My arm is still a little sore but otherwise today was a great day. Today was the first day in 20 that I haven’t taken a single shot! It is weird to feel like a normal person… Well not totally normal, I’m still taking the dexamethasone, an oral antibiotic and an antibiotic suppository.
Yesterday I made the mistake of reading a post on Dr. Sher's blog about the importance of the trigger shot. Apparently he had a patient once who forgot to mix the liquid and powder together and just gave herself a shot of water instead of the trigger. When he went in for retrieval he couldn’t get a single egg because none of them matured.
I’m nervous about tomorrow. Egg retrieval is set for 10 am tomorrow. What if I did something wrong? I double checked the trigger shot 10 times so it probably wasn’t that, but maybe it was something else? It’s exciting to have gotten to this stage but I don’t do well with situations I have no control over. I wish I could plan it or organize it or do anything to have control over how it will go.
I guess I’m just going to have to appreciate the fact that I am paying a great doctor gobs of money to have all the control. I’m paying him so I don’t have to worry… so why am I still worrying?
