Ultrasound and hCG Trigger Shot

On Saturday I had my follicular ultrasound. My follicles were still a bit too small, so my doctor had me do a forth FSH injection. He said the follicles grow about 2mm a day, so he set my IUI for Wednesday morning. I'm excited and nervous! Although I've learned by now that I should stop being nervous because every time I am it turns out to not be a big deal at all. 

Oh boy, now I'm bringing in the big guns!

Last night I took the hCG trigger shot. hCG (human chorionic gonadotropin) is a hormone that is used to aid in the follicle maturation process and stimulate egg release. Typically women ovulate around 36 hours after the injection. That puts me at exactly 9am Wednesday morning, the exact time I'm getting the IUI. Timing is very important since eggs only typically live for 24 hours.

On another note, we are doing well. I have slowly been putting up Christmas decorations (yeah, yeah, yeah, you probably think it's too soon...) and we have been addicted to the new show Reign. Life is good and we are enjoying our time together! 


  1. As said above recurrent miscarriages is one of the serious problems that the couples are facing today. IUI treatment centres in Chennai provides solution with the experts of that field.

  2. Hi

    If you are trying to get pregnant naturally, you must read this writing!

    Last week, I came across this incredible holistic pregnancy program written by a nutritionist and a health consultant. Her name is Lisa Olson.

    Lisa has the incredible ability to cut through all the BS and hype that surrounds overcoming infertility and getting pregnant naturally.

    Do you want to learn how to get pregnant and give birth to healthy children from someone who has herself cured her infertility (and coached many women in reversing infertility issues), or from someone who just read about how to get pregnant?

    Sorry, but experience wins out in my book. I will always want to learn from the person who's actually done what I'm trying to do.

    If you're battling with any type infertility or are struggling to get pregnant especially if you're on your late 30's or late 40's, you MUST check this out --

    I don't endorse many products. Mainly because they are mostly hype and don't live up to expectation. Lisa's new book called "Pregnancy Miracle", is an exception! This material is excellent and a MUST READ for anyone trying to get pregnant naturally and dramatically improve their health and well-being.

    Now, I know many of you are saying, "Oh no, not another 'get pregnant in 7 days' program". To be totally honest, I thought the same thing. Rest assured, this is not the case. It is not a quick fix, or gimmick. Its 250+ pages of solid, clinically proven holistic information for getting pregnant. She starts from square one and teaches you everything you need to know. Doesn't matter what type of infertility you have and regardless of your age or lifestyle, you WILL learn something from this book.

    Here's what the author Lisa Olson had to say about her incredible program:

    "After 14 years of trial, error and experimentation, I finally discovered the answer to infertility and developed a fool-proof system to getting pregnant the natural way - no drugs, or surgery necessary. And now I'm finally revealing my secrets in this new 'encyclopedia' of pregnancy called, Pregnancy Miracle.

    I will be your own personal coach, take you by the hand, and lead you through the lousy advice, hype and gimmicks...and directly to the sort of inner balance perfection that will end your battle with infertility forever and help you become a proud mother of your healthy children.

    Don't even THINK about buying any pregnancy or infertility product, drugs or going on a gimmick pregnancy program until you read my revealing, no-holds barred holistic getting pregnant book..."
