Kind of freaking out
Went in this morning (CD13) for the 2nd ultrasound. Apparently I had follicles at 24mm and the nurse thought I would ovulate today or tomorrow. I tested this morning and the OPK was negative, and I haven’t gotten a positive any earlier than CD 18, so that sounded crazy to me.
My RE called me back just now and she wants me to do a trigger shot of HCG/Novarel tonight and come in for IUI# 5 on Friday morning.
While this is great and exactly what I wanted to hear, I’m kind of freaking out. Ok, not kind of. A lot. I am a lot freaking out. My husband is traveling for work until Saturday, he’s been gone for 2 weeks. I have to do this stuff by myself and I’m nervous. While I watched my dad give himself countless insulin injections growing up, I’ve never given myself an injection of any kind.
Luckily I have a great best friend who has taken this shot before and so I’m going to go over there and do it under someone else’s watchful eye. Because me sitting in a house alone with a syringe aimed at my stomach does not sound like something that’s going to end well.
