Trigger

I triggered last night a the BBISP. It was weird to stash my shots in someone else's fridge and just take it out and stick myself in someone else's kitchen. But I wasn't the only one on stims at the party, and it was so comforting to be out in the open. I would like to thank the lovely Lady in Waiting for use of her beautiful home, and it was so nice to see other bloggers in person. I'm so glad I went.

Right now I'm pretty paranoid that I ovulated. I had some major cm on Friday, and now I don't have much of anything. I also can't feel my ovaries any more. I also felt some ovulation-like pain in my right ovary yesterday. I'm also not feeling quite as insane as I have been. It could be all in my head, but I am on a micro-dose of Lu*pron and I wouldn't be the first person to ovulate despite it. Though, I could just be paranoid and everything is fine. I guess I'll find out tomorrow morning.

Today for Father's Day we are going to my parents to have dinner with both of my brothers and their wives and children. Today is a shitty day for poor T who lost his father 5 years ago and who is being stymied at his efforts to become a father himself. He is now medicating himself by playing his brand new video game. It seems to be working for now, though I anticipate him feeling sadder when he's around my nieces and nephew.

It's sunny and warm today, and I'm going to go weed my garden for a little bit. Then I will shower and we will drive over to my parents' house. We will come home and go to bed, and tomorrow we will be at the clinic by 8 am for my retrieval. I hope I don't puke this time.

Hey - good deal on going to the party anyway!! So many people in that situation wouldn't have felt OK with going. You are my kind of chick! :) Yay you!!

I can't belive we are only 1 hr appart on our retrievals - that is sooo cool!

I will certainly be thinking of you and hoping for the best.

I had the same feelings yesterday - that I ovulated - hopefully it is just in our hormone-stressed minds, huh?

I'll check in with you when I'm up and at-em tomorrow.
