The nurse called me today. I am to give the trigger shot of Novarel tonight. This is my husbands big moment. I have been giving myself the shots all along. This one goes in the upper buttocks so I cant give it to myself. My husband is a little squeamish when it comes to shots, but he is going to have to get over it.
Novarel is the HCG. This will make my ovaries ovulate. You ovulate 36 hours after the injection. The nurse gave me a specific time to inject it so I will be ready for the egg retrieval on Friday morning.
Tomorrow I dont take anything. No shots at all. I get a break!
Friday morning my husband and I go to the clinic and he gives his sample and I get sedated and they extract me eggs.
All these weeks of pain from shots, side effects for the meds, and just nervousness, comes down to this day.
We are almost there.
