Trigger Shot

So 36 hours before the egg retrieval I have to do what's called a "trigger shot" with the injection Ovidrel.  Basically, it tells my body to get prepared for the retrieval by letting my eggs prepare to release.  I have heard good and bad about the trigger shot, so I was nervous.  It was a sub-q (short needle) so I'm thankful for that!  It could have been a huge needle!  I had my husband give me the injection in my tummy and it wasn't bad AT ALL!!  I hardly felt a thing!  Nice!!
