I got the trigger shot about 9am.
Last night at 11:30pm, I felt ovulatory pains very, very strong ones.
Now, from what I know: a trigger shot induces ovulation between 12-24 hours (some say 36?) and you should have the IUI between 24-36 hours afterwards.
What a minute, after what?? After the trigger or after I ovulate/feel ovulation?
But what if I ovulated at 14 hours past trigger? Which is what it felt like...
Once the egg is released it's viable for about 24 hours and frozen sperm live 6-12 hours, so an 11am IUI would be good timing because it's within the 24 hours after ovulation, yes?
Or it would be bad because you want the sperm sitting there ready to pounce WHEN you ovulate?
See, I should know all of this. Really, I should. I do, I just forget. I get confused. I second-guess everything and I feel so stupid after 5 tries and how many months of prep to still be asking basic questions.
I've got a call in to my RE and nurse this morning already, but they are so crazy in the a.m. no one has called me back.
This day is the one that makes me crazy. The second-guessing and crap shoot timing of it all.
This is the day, every month, that I wonder how anyone ever gets pregnant.
****Edited to add: Nurse called. Basically told me according to my blood yesterday there is no way I've already ovulated. Please remember I took hormones this month and quit freaking out. Hee Hee.****
So....I've got 45 minutes to walk myself up to the spermification palace. See ya.
