Pregnant!

Dec 27, 2011 - 3 comments

Got my BFP on Christmas eve. I had already been told I didn't ovulate because my progesterone test on CD 21 was at 3.54. Looking at my temps, I think that is the day I ovulated! I went to see my wonderful doctor today and did some blood work. He prescribed me progesterone tablets to make sure that my progesterone is up. Tomorrow I will hear back from the lab about my results. Fingers crossed for good news! I also have to go back in on Thursday for another test to make sure my numbers are doubling like they should be!

Update!

On CD 27 waiting for AF to come soon so I can start 100 mg clomid. At CD 21 progesterone check my level was higher that my previous cycle without clomid but he didn't think that I ovulated because my levels were still too low. So on to cycle 2 of clomid. I am hoping that this works.

1st cycle- Clomid 50 mg days 3-7
2nd cycle- Clomid 100 mg days 2-9

Finally some answers!

Finally the doctor called and said that my progesterone levels had gone up but not enough. He has increased my dose to 100 mg. He said that I might have ovulated but if I did I do not really have enough progesterone in my system to support a pregnancy. I asked about ALL of the different symptoms and he said it's because my body is trying to go through the motions of ovulation plus he said that the Clomid adds to it. So at least now I know something! Better luck next cycle!

Positives-
~ My progesterone went up!
~ My doctor finally called me with some answers!

Negatives-
~ I have to start over.....

God has a plan for me and I leave my life in his hands.

Frustrated!

I just need to vent! I had a progesterone test done on Monday. I called Tuesday to check on the results and left a message at the nurses station. No one ever called. I called back at 4 right before they closed and asked the front desk why I had not been contacted and they said it was because they were waiting on the doctor to look at the results. OK... fine. I called today and they asked me if I did an OPK and if it was positive and when. I said no and they asked when I think I ovulated. I said I was unsure but had started cramping on CD 9. She asked what day I was on now I said CD 23. She said that she would speak to the doctor and call me back..... The office is now closed and I have not heard from her yet. I still don't know what my level was and I am completely unsure what those questions meant.

My guess is either
1- He doesn't think that I ovulated because my levels are low.
2- My levels are high.


Either way I am so frustrated! If I didn't ovulate why in the heck have I felt so sick and had cramps all month? Why didn't the nurse just tell me my level so that I cold at least google some answers! Ugghhhhhhhhh!

OK I feel a little better!
