I triggered last night.  My E2 went up and then down, but was still high yesterday, so they had me trigger with a 1/2 dose of HCG.  I am happy that I was not cancelled, and scared now of OHSS.  But I think I’m more happy this cycle was not for nothing, and I’ll take my chances with OHSS.  At least they will take these suckers out; I cannot imagine ovulating 20+ eggs naturally.

I had a crazy reaction to the HcG.  I did the shot subQ at 10:45 and went to bed.  I started having wacky vivid dreams and jumping awake every ten minutes, till I couldn’t sleep anymore.  I could feel the blood pumping through my veins and got panicky.   So, I got up at 1 am, ate some mac and cheese and watched Sex in the City and then went back to bed around 2 and was ok.  It was a very strange experience, and it seems like no one else has a reaction like that.

Anyhow, I’ve been so miserable lately….my ovaries are ready to pop, and I hope that they get smaller and not bigger after ER….ER is tomorrow at 9:45!!
