I triggered last night in a restaurant bathroom at precisely 8pm. I have a tiny purple bruise to mark the spot. My belly was inflating and deflating for about an hour afterward, probably just a coincidence, but odd. My husband looked over at me in my pseudo maternity dress, and was a bit freaked out at the size of my belly. Anyhoo, today it is actually a little less distended, but much more painful to walk around, bend, be driven over potholes and the like.
I sat very still for an hour and half at my mother's for a brunch, and then came home and laid on the couch from 12 to 6. The brunch was heavy on sugar, so I sent my husband out for burritos. I was not sure that this was a good idea, in fact, I changed my order to enchiladas at one point, but the creamy comfort of a burriot was calling to me. However, the resulting gastric expression is not particularly well suited to the swollen state of my ovaries. Yet my tummy is happy and my blood sugar is stabilized.
This is the day I've been dreading the most. I have this horrible fear that I will ovulate before the retrieval and all will be lost. My doctor said that is the most common pre-retrieval nightmare. So at least I'm average, but I will feel much better when I find out that there were some eggs in those follicles.
I may be able to post tomorrow, but I'm not sure.
