Trigger Happy

My ultrasound yesterday showed a 22 mm follicle! Finally! The doctor told me to trigger at around 5 pm that evening. The trigger is a different shot which causes ovulation within 24-36 hours. So we actually get to try this month ... for the first time since November. Yay! I was so glad to get that call from the doctor, obviously because I will successfully ovulate this month, but also because it means I don't have to deal with the insurance company for a while. Double yay!

Of course, there is only a 20% chance of pregnancy even with ovulation, but that is much better than the 0% chance without. And it's awesome that this drug protocol worked because it means we could try this for a couple more months (if this isn't our month) before moving on to IVF.

Hope.  Such a happy thing!
