Trigger shot!!

Today was an exact repeat of yesterday. Tons of extra sleep, sat by the pool for a while with friends, and hanging out in the room.

The really good thing about today is that I officially had my last injections of Lupron and Gonal-F. What a relief, my stomach is bruised up a bit. Tonight is the trigger shot and no other needles until the IV on Monday!! The trigger shot, for those who are lucky to not be challenged in the fertility department, is to help all my follicles mature and get ready to be released. You have to take your trigger shot appoximately 36 hours before egg pick up. Three weeks of injections has worn on my body and I am ready to feel like myself again :)

Hope you all have a great day and thanks for the continued support, cheer, and comments. We look forward to them because they really keep us going!!

Too cool Daria.....It's almost over! How brave you are to do all of this, I am so proud of both you and Stephan, this goal you have is not for the faint of heart.
Have a wonderful weekend, and Monday here we come! Many prayers for the creation of this beautiful child. He/she will be so loved.

I have been out of town for a week and have been catching up. You have been in my prayers all week. How incredibly brave you are... such a wonderful mother! :-) Good luck on Monday!

Isn't it great to be done with shots? I remember rejoicing!

Btw we're at Hiranandani if you are up to stopping by. I realize you may not feel up to it AT ALL, but we would love to meet you if we could...and since Bella is supposed to be released to us this morning (but not from the hospital) we can't really come to you. Whether we see you or not, however, all the best with the EPU! We're pulling for you.
