Well tonight’s the night! Stim time’s done and it’s trigger o’clock! Woohoo… Finally. I’m about to pop.
Actually it’s “tomorrow” – I have to trigger with Ovitrelle at 00:30 tonight / tomorrow morning. That means egg collection is on Wednesday around 12:30, which means a fairly civilised arrival at hospital at 11:30. 8 people having egg collections on Wednesday. Wowsers. I asked what would happen if they got delayed with the backlog, like would my eggs wither on the vine (so to speak), but the nurse said that they have “a window” and they wouldn’t miss them. Eek.
Drugs situ is no more IVF drugs until after collection, although I’ll still take my supplements for the immune protocol. I skip the heparin tomorrow (Tuesday) and start it again on Wednesday evening after the egg collection. On Wednesday I morning (I think… Need to check notes) I start taking Prednisolone (steroid to deal with the immune response) plus something else to deal with the potential indigestion. Yay! Pretty sure I will also have Progesterone after transfer. It’s a bit to remember but hopefully I will!
So – a couple of hours till trigger time! I wonder if I’ll have popped by then… Or if I jab myself with a needle, I might deflate suddenly and fly around the room!
