In addition, giving myself the trigger shot was sort of traumatic. I wasn't scared to do it, but it was harder than I thought it would be to mix and get all the liquid in the needle and then it actually hurt more than I thought it would. It hurt way more than the saline solution of the fake shot. And it bled. And now the spot is bruised and sore. It made me get teary-eyed and feel sorry for myself.
So, my plan is to work for a few hours, but to leave early and go home and maybe take some stronger painkillers and have a rest. Tomorrow I will come to work just for a couple hours in the morning and then the actual IUI will happen at 12:30 and I plan to basically lay around for the rest of the day thinking good pregnant thoughts.
Yesterday my friend rubbed her adorable 5 month old all over me for luck. I don't know if it worked, but I enjoyed hanging out with the little smiley squirmer either way. Maybe I should pull out my Ghanaian fertility necklace and wear it tomorrow.
In the meantime, there is no position I can be in that is comfortable. So I will sit here and feel sorry for myself for a minute longer.
