So I had her come over, DH helped to mix and draw up the HCG, then at precisely 8:30 I leaned over the couch and let my neighbor stick me. Didn't feel a thing; that was easy! Of course, just a few minutes later I could definitely feel something (and my bum is still sore)!
This morning I went ahead and decided to test the trigger with an HPT, and sure enough it turned positive instantly. So at least I know we got it right! But it was very weird for me to see that, wondering if I'll ever see another positive.
I'm trying to keep calm for tomorrow morning and pray that everything goes smoothly. I think it's the anesthesia that's got me worried the most. I'm just ready for it to be over and to have peace with whatever happens.
There's a song that my mom used to sing at church a long time ago, and lately it's been stuck in my head quite a bit. Particularly the line:
I know not what the future holds, but I know Who holds the futureI think it's very appropriate to our situation, and I pray that others like us may find the same comfort
