Trigger Happy...

So... as the post is titled it appears we will be triggering tonight. PIO starts on Saturday. D is not looking forward to this, but I KNOW he's up to the challenge. I had a coworker offer to do them if she lived closer - she doesn't and it's not a big deal to have D do the shots.. I figure since he hasn't done the gonal-f this cycle he can do the PIO for me. He fortunately agrees. As long as I do the measuring and take the needle cap off as well and of course mark the spot that he's supposed to inject. I guess the only thing I don't do is actually insert the needle.

Anyways - I'm being very lacksadaisical about all this... I don't know what my lining is, I know I have 3 follicles that they measured, have no idea what my E2 was and well... that's just weird for me. I have the paperwork for a beta and I can choose the day as long as it's after the 15th. I'm not sure when I'll actually do it. I guess it depends on when I'm at work.

So that's my news. Talk about a change from the cycles before. I hope this bodes well for this one. I've had some minor panic attacks as I'm not positive D's insurance will cover gonal-f and I'm wishing I had stockpiled more gonal-f from the other insurance company. D's prescription coverage told me I wasn't covered and then come to find out they had me listed under the incorrect name. Which made both D and I slightly balistic because WE filled out the paperwork and know that the incorrect name was never put on the paperwork. Such a pain switching insurance companies. Also such a pain when they mix and match prescription and health coverage. Ah well what are you gonna do?

If this cycle doesn't work looks like I may have to pick up extra. Or I may be pimping my husband out so that I can of course feed my gonal-f addiction.

Such is life right?

Good luck with the PIO shot and with the insurance coverage for your prescriptions. I'm hoping that this cycle works so that you won't need any more Gonal-F anyway.

Insurance is such a horrible pain isn't it? My dh's company just adjusted our insurance and now we have a $2,200 health deductible and a $2,000 Rx deductible as well. And... they are taking more out of his check for it too! Bunch of crooks!

Good luck with that trigger!

Sami-so much luck this cycle...and while we all hate the "just relax" crap...I do think it is good to take things as easy as you can in the midst of a cycle.

Hey Sami
I hope the PIO is going (all right?, okay?, not too bothersome?)
