We had a great weekend up north. It was a whirlwind of a trip with a ton of driving, but it was a good time.
Ryan got to show me around his college campus and I was so proud of him when he was presented with his big award. We also got to spend time with some old friends we haven't seen in a while and they were generous enough to let us stay at their house Friday night. We loved seeing their two kids, who are so cute, although it does remind us of what we are missing out on. We also got to spend time with my family on Saturday night and Sunday, so that was a nice bonus.
We got home early this morning. Then shortly after we woke up today Ryan realized he'd been honored again - by being named one of the two best political reporters in our state by the Washi.ngton Po.st! It really is a huge honor, especially because he has only been doing this two years. I don't have any kids to be proud of, but at least I have my husband!
So tomorrow we are heading up 95 N once again, for an ultrasound appointment with Dr. L. I don't really know what to expect. I'm hoping she will agree to do the trigger shot, but will that depend on what my follicle looks like? I'm afraid she will say that I don't need one, and because I have no real idea what the shot is actually for, I don't know how to argue my case. It could be that she is already planning on giving me the trigger. I shouldn't get ahead of myself.
I'm also worried about getting subsequent ultrasounds this week because I have adoration on Wednesday, plans with GIMH and Fertile Thoughts on Thursday and then we're heading out of town for a weekend trip (belated anniversary getaway) on Friday. Tomorrow is cycle day 13 and I usually ovulate late, like around day 17 or 18 which will be this weekend. Does anyone know how a trigger shot works? Could she do an ultrasound on Thursday, see that it looks like I'll ovulate over the weekend and plan for me to do the trigger myself? I really need to read up on this.
I'll let you know how it all goes...
