Choose Your Own Adventure: The Case of the Terrible Trigger Shot

This post originally ran in 2007.  I am re-running it because I wanted to reference Choose Your Own Adventures in a future blog post.  So what better way to explain it than to make you do one if you’re unfamiliar with the process.  Plus it was so much work to create it.  It deserves another go-around.

You know the drill — you get to choose Sharon Barren’s destiny (because while it was always fun that the series was in second person, most of us have enough problems in our life without taking on those of Sharon Barren) in this choose-your-own-adventure post. At the end of each section, there is red text that contains two choices. Click on one and continue on your way until you hit the next set of choices. This post won’t make sense unless you choose because the rest of the story is contained on different posts. You need to choose. Choose, damnit! You can always start over at the beginning and choose a new adventure.

A side note: there are 12 possible endings to this story.

A Sharon Barren Choose-Your-Own-Blog-Adventure: The Case of the Terrible Trigger Shot

Sharon Barren, five foot two and a ninja at heart, was driving home from her neighbourhood fertility clinic, IUI dreams dancing in her little head. Her E2 was 869 pg/ml and she was triggering that night. There had only been 3 follicles, which was less than what she wanted considering what she had gone through to make them, but it was better than the one mega follicle she had produced in past stim cycles.

She had enough time to treat herself at the local Starbucks and stop at home before she had to get to work. She wasn’t sure she really needed the calories from a dulce de leche latte, but a treat sure sounded tempting…

I loved Choose Your Own Adventure books when I was a kid. So much fun. How awesome that y’all did one through blogs!

Now I am off to see what happens to Sharon when she stops at the Starbucks…

Loved it then; love it now. Serving a good lesson to me about not rebelling against the GD (gest. diabetus or goshdarn, however you interpret it) diet and just forgoing Starbucks.

There’s one of these on y0utub3 called hell pizza.

I know it takes a lot of effort to create them but it’s so much fun to read 🙂

I’ve been clicking Sharon’s adventures so much. Every time I encountered a PG person I got upset and clicked back

I loved it! I would love to read Sharren Barren and her IUI, Sharren Barren and her Beta results, Sharren Barren and her not quite doubling numbers….

Fabulous. You are so freaking creative.

This ROCKS so much! Pass the steaming hot mocha!

Diane is the best! I am too old for the Choose Your Own Adventure books…and I wouldn’t have liked them anyway. I’d have to go and read all the possible outcomes…which seems annoying. 🙂

ha brilliant. I’ve found about 5 of the endings so far – loved those Choose your own Adventure books when I was younger (but could never be arsed with the dice rolling and imminent death, so used to cheat/wing it!)
