No, this will not be a post in which I rant about how tired I am of all things related to infertility. I am just truly exhausted today. Yesterday afternoon when the nurse called and told me my trigger time was 11:30 I knew that today might be hard, but I can barely keep my eyes open! We were actually up until after midnight because after my injection we had to take care of a little business for hubby – per doctor’s orders. I’d originally planned to have everything else done BEFORE the injection, so that at 11:31 we could crawl under the covers and fall fast asleep. But, to kill time until 11:30 we watched a movie. It ended later that I expected and by the time it was over it was too close to 11:30 and I didn’t want to risk having the injection late because by that time I was a nervous wreck. Anyone else have totally irrational thoughts about effing up the injection, or the meds not working right, etc, etc… Hubby kept reminding me that if it was that difficult to get it right they wouldn’t let us do it ourselves, but I’m still nervous. Plus my behind hurts. This was the first time I’ve triggered intramuscularly. The shot itself didn’t hurt too much, but soon after I felt very sore and almost 12 hours later I’m still achy. Never had this with my progesterone shots, so I wasn’t expecting it!
