Help!

So, I feel like crying right now. About ready to start my first IUI after a long road of all the other stuff (ttc naturally, just femara, femara and shots...etc). Anyway, I just went in for my midcycle ultrasound. When I got home, I got a phone call that I was supposed to trigger RIGHT AWAY. I believe the nurse said my follicle was at a 26. One or both...I'm not sure? The sonographer said I  had two nice-sized ones at the ultrasound. Anyway, after we hung up I realized that I didn't know if I was supposed to take my last FSH shot or not (I was scheduled for my last one today). I frantically called the Fertility Clinic but they close at NOON on Friday and I got the answering service. So, I left a message but I did not think she would call me back. So I had my husband give me both shots: the trigger and the last FSH shot. Then, almost an hour later, THE NURSE CALLS ME. I think my frustration got the best of me because I answered with "I didn't think you would call me back so I gave myself both shots. I hope I didn't screw things up." She started laughing. I nervously laughed too so I wouldn't sound mean...and then later thought "this is not a laughing matter to me! This is info she should have given me up front! Or atleast been reachable the day before an IUI!" Anyway, she said it should be fine since I am doing IUI tomorrow, and didn't say anything else. Now I am PARANOID. Will my follicles get too big and ovulate early? I was told not to have sex before IUI! So if they do ovulate early there will not be any swimmers in there. I pray they don't ovulate early or dissolve or anything. I need some good advice. Please!!

I went through IUI and ivf and I always worried about that but you will O 36 hours after the trigger.  I had two leading follicles during my last ivf but I still did not O after 24 hours.  Trigger helps to time fertility procedures.
Good luck to you this cycle.
