So I am kind of panicking right now. I gave myself the trigger shot yesterday night. This morning I took an OPK (one of those smiley ones) that confirmed i got the HCG. It was positve. BUT I dont think its going to work. I feel no symptoms at all. No twinges in the my ovary, no cramps, nothing. The past few days i was having all kinds of symptoms like bloating, sore boobs, cramping. The reason I am panicking is because my doctor is having me take progesterone suppositories starting this Saturday for two weeks until I get to take a HPT. But, if i dont ovulate, how will we know because the progesterone will give me a period anyways!
I asked the nurse about that. She kept saying that I WILL ovulate, that I will know that I ovulated. I told her i dont feel anything today. She said I will tommorrow and the day after. Its so frustrating to think that after all this, i might not even ovulate even though i had three mature follicles. I just wish i felt something. any indication that something was happening...
Has anyone expirienced this? any thoughts?

Please try not to worry too much, although I know its hard to do. When I had my tirgger shot I didn't really feel anything either, at one point I thought I felt something but it was so faint I couldn't even tell. It may even take a little longer than expected too. Hang in there, you're in my prayers.

Hi Rooni,

I've been thinking about you and wondering how you're doing. Hope you're feeling better about things. Please keep me posted.

If you got a positive OPK, you are probably ovulating! How exciting!!! Time to celebrate! Plus, they can usually tell in an ultrasound if a follicle released an egg...It kind of looks like a tiny ruptured cyst. They were always able to tell which ovary it was on for me, and it always hurt a little bit. BTW...I didn't feel any twinges, cramps, or anything at all. Not a thing. I didn't have a trigger shot, but I still had no symptoms. The progesterone would give you a period (if you aren't pregnant) after you go off of the progesterone pill. But they should still be able to tell by ultrasound if you ovulated. Don't think about what "might not" happen, that will not help you. Just try not to stress and be happy that things are moving in the right direction!

Hi Ladies,

Cramping continues. it got worse on friday, sat and sun. i asked my doctor about HCG and her response was:

HCG always works as long as you take it.

So maybe i did ovulate!

Even if i dont get preg, right now just being able to ovulate is such a big deal because i went 14 months without ovulation

Progesterone suppositories are no fun though. They are mostly inconvinient. I am supposed to lie down 10-15 min after i use them, once in the morning and once at night. in the night its fine bc you just do it before you go to sleep, but in the morning i have to wake up a bit early, insert it, and then lay back down. since i am running late most mornings, its hard to take that 15 min. Plus it has a really waxy consistency and feel to it. So far though the side effects from them arent bad. when i take provera, i always get zits and hot flashes etc. with the suppositories i havent felt much, apart from the cramping and i dont know whats causing that.

i'll keep you guys posted! keep me in your prayers please!

Thinking of you and praying for you! How long do you have to wait to take a HPT? The HCG makes it show up positive for a while doesn't it?
rooni222 replied to Albrecht0529's response:
Hi Albrecht0529!

i can test on the 13th or 14th. the HCG does make both an OPK and an HPT come up postive. I took 10,000 units and i've reading that it takes about 10 days for that to leave the body.

i still feel very crampy though...dont know what thats all about

thank you for thinking of me!
Prayforamiracle replied to rooni222's response:
I'm sure the 13th/14th can't come soon enough for you, I sure can't wait to hear the news. I'm hoping the cramping means really good things are happening. I'm praying for you and sending lots of good luck vibes!!!!
