A new first

Tonight (well, technically tomorrow at 2am), I get to do my first trigger shot on myself! C is up in the Bay with the little guy and I can’t bring myself to ask a friend to do it at that hour, so…trigger shot in the upper thigh it is!

I’m a little terrified, but feel inspired to do it by our friend Willy. For the last trigger shot, in July, C was busy with a friend from out of town and asked poor Willy to do it! He works in construction, had no idea what it entailed, and was actually relieved when he found out the shot was only in my butt! :/ I talked him through it, “Just plunge it in, like a dart!” So I figure, I ought to be able to do it myself!

In case you’re keeping track, this will make only our second natural cycle IUI with trigger shot since we started trying for #2 back in May. That’s because I ovulated early twice, and traveled out of state at precisely the wrong time one time. As we come up on the three attempts that we had originally agreed upon, it begs the question of what we plan to do next… But I’ll save that debate for another night, and another post.

Wish us luck!

    It is possible to do those rear end shots on your own. It takes a little finesse, but I’ve managed a few of them 🙂 Good luck!!!

    • Thank you! After seeing how sore the shot made my leg the next day, I think I would try the butt shot myself next time. Of course, hopefully I don’t have to do it myself again any time soon!
