day of the night before

Trigger last night was about 90% anticipatory anxiety, 10% just perfectly fine injection (my darlin' gets a gold star)-- 15+ minutes of pre-icing is just the thing.
This morning, I woke to a sore butt and hammering heart.
I peed on a stick (dollar store) saw the instantaneous two lines, felt better about knowing the hCG is in my system.

Figured out initial logistics for the next few days- with plenty of room for adjustment as necessary. Still going to Squam, checking in tonight and staying for orientation- then we'll head over to Hanover for the night for the retrieval tomorrow morning (fingers crossed), then back to Squam if I am up for it afterwards for a very very low key thursday that could mean bed, or dock, or woods...

Class still scheduled for friday and saturday but I can change that as I need to.
I can do nothing or something as I wish and can.

Last time the physical part of ER was no big deal- I felt tired after, but really, it was the emotional part of the "no eggs" thing that really took me down. I am hopeful I will be comfortable in every way-- body and eggs retrieved please.

Good luck to everyone out there in every way-- Folks who are cycling now or are on the cusp, folks waiting for information, and folks in their 2ww, or waiting for a cyst to shrink, or waiting for the stars to align.
I wish this took a lot less luck, heck, we'd all be pregnant.

I'll be checking in as I can.
