Time To Pull The Trigger

November 11th I finally get the green light to do the trigger shot. During my ultrasound Dr. Fisch sees that my uterus is still tilted and the follicles on the left side will be difficult to get to but he assures me that everything is moving along “very nicely.” What reassuring words! (more…)

The Big Reveal, Or One Of Them

It’s November 9th which marks the day I finally get to have the ultrasound to see how the stimulations have been doing. We did the Lupron and I took my folic acid pill just like normal.
