TTC: Clomid and the trigger shot

Today I finished taking my first round of Clomid. I started taking it last Friday. I took 2 a day (which is twice the normal dosage) for 7 days. Clomid is a drug that helps you create eggs. Where I might produce 1 or 2 eggs, the Clomid will help me produce 7 or 8 eggs, thus creating the possibility of twins or multiples :).

I go to the doctor Monday morning at 8:00 to have a vaginal ultrasound done. Since my left fallopian tube is blocked, they will be focusing primarily on my right ovary. If they see any folicles, then I will get my injection of HCG which is called a "trigger shot". The purpose of the trigger shot is to help me ovulate. And thus, this is where the "fun" comes into play. LOL!!!
