Trigger tomorrow PLEASE!

I need to trigger tomorrow!  I was hoping that they would trigger me today but they aren't quite ready yet.  Because of that I had to buy one dose of Gonal -F (one shot) for $217.  Now I KNOW that many IVFers out there reading this pay out of pocket for everything and I have no right to complain, but I was not planning on this and have no money.  If they don't trigger me tomorrow, I will have to buy about $1000 worth of meds (for ONE DAY) and I just don't have the money and am really stressed about it.  There is nothing that I can do so there's no sense in thinking about it, but I can't help but worry.

There is barely a place to inject my belly is soo bruised!  I'm up to 4 shots a day and that evil Ganirelix leaves me bloody and bruised.  The worst part is knowing the reality that this cycle will very likely not work.  But we're giving it a "shot", right?  What's with the corny joke?  Oh and there's stress about when I'll have my test and whether or not I'll have to leave Buffalo (where my family lives) early to come back for it, but that conversation is for a different day.  For now, I just have to go ice my belly and get ready for the night's meds...more tomorrow.


  1. ohh my! I really hope you are able to trigger tmw so that you don't have to worry about getting more meds!

    In the middle of your forehead? Ohh my! I bet that was interesting to explain.

  2. I really hope you trigger tomorrow too!! That's a lot of money to spend for one day of meds!

  3. Hope that you get to trigger today!! (I HATE ganirelix too...last round I used it and the needles are SO dull.)I'll be checking back for an update!!!


  4. I really hope you do get to trigger tonight! Every penny spent on IVF is hard. And that is a whole lot of money for one day. Praying for good growth.

  5. hey Tracey! It was so nice to find a fellow lady on gonal f.. those stats sound great and I hope too you can trigger tomorrow for your bank balance and sanity!!
