Whaaaaat?!? Ovidrel shot?

The nurse just called and gave me my actual follicle sizes (the sono tech usually just gives me general numbers) and they are 23.5, 18.5 and 17.5.

Yep, those puppies are ready to go alright! The shot is nothing - I promise. I have hurt myself worse cutting toenail too short LOL The needle is super sharp and not even an inch long. The lead up in your brain is much worse than it actually will end up being!

Also I normally O the day after trigger sometime but of course I can't know down to the hour so 36 hrs could very well be right. I know they time IUI's at 36 hours.

About your lining .9 ISSSSSSSS a lot more than you think! It's almost a whole mm Aryn! That counts! It will grow ABOUT a mm per day and like I said 8 is ideal so you should be somewhere between 7 and 8 by the time you O so I think you're fine!

Aryn, I've also had to have the Ovidrel shot before and I agree with Michelle.

Michelle - ok, thanks! this is why you should be an RE nurse. :) You know everything. Think we can just BD tonight and tomorrow night instead of Wed morning?

Carmela - ok, good. I will try and get DH to give it to me, but I bet he will be out on that.

Aryn - no sweat - I had to sit through a stupid class and it was just a waste of time... I'm a MAJOR needle phob and did it with no problem at all - just grab some fat on your belly (if you have any - try to pinch an inch if you can girl!), put the needle in, hit the plunger, release your skin and THEN take the shot out - very important to release the skin so the liquid doesn't come back out before you take the needle out....

Don't worry! This is easy. I'm about to do my 4th.

Prefilled syringe. Invert it and press out the air bubble. Lie down and swab your belly with the alcohol wipe about one inch below and two inches over from your navel, either side will do. Pinch a little of the skin and fluff under there and jab the tiny needle into it - you probably won't feel it. Then press in the fluid, you probably won't feel that either. Remove the syringe and smoosh your tummy fluff around a little.

GOOD LUCK!!

Yep, tonight and tomorrow night are just fine! :) I hate to be the one to get your hopes up but I have SO MUCH HOPE FOR YOU THIS CYCLE with that many follicles at 18 or higher! I know you have that one 17 but for all intents and purposes (DH says intensive purposes and it drives me batty LOL) it's an 18 to me! That is FOUR eggs those little dudes have a chance to hook up with. I really think this is gonna be your month!

Aryn, your numbers and follie sizes sound GREAT! You have excellent chances this month, my friend!

Im sorry that they didnt have the shot ready for you, but with all the great instructions you got from Michelle, Ann and Chouli, Im sure you'll do fine :) I know that giving yourself a shot is certainly not a piece of cake... but hopefully it wont be too much trouble.

Ok, so you all were right. The shot was NO big deal at all and I barely felt it. Gave it to myself at 6 pm. We BD'd last night and will tonight, too.

Today my abdomen isn't nearly as sore or "full" feeling as it was yesterday, which of course has me freaked that I O'd overnight or something. Geez.
