Getting my first donation for this cycle tonight. I went to see a midwife last week, and she agreed that I needed a stronger dose of the progesterone than the cream I was using. She actually has me taking it the entire cycle (minus when I'm bleeding) to get it high enough. She said it won't get high enough to sustain a pregnancy if I start it after ovulation. My levels are just too low right now. I was super nervous that it would stop my ovulation if I started it before I ovulated, and I'm pretty sure I asked her 3 times if she was sure I would still ovulate. Guess she was right because I got a super dark opk yesterday (Day 11!!!!!). I've never ovulated anywhere near this early in my cycle. I'm hoping and praying that I'll conceive again this cycle and that my progesterone level will be high enough to sustain it.

A little update on my situation:

AF showed yesterday (first time since miscarriage), but we'll be sitting out for a few months before trying again because the most amazing thing happened! We were not seeking out another adoption (obviously) since we've been pursuing the donor sperm route, but apparently God had other plans for us. A friend of a friend of a friend, let us know about an opportunity to adopt a newborn baby girl through the state. We thought it was an absoutely long shot but ended up bringing her home only 6 hours after being contacted by the state! So we brought home our 4 lb 4 oz preemie baby #2 on March 6th and are ecstatic!

We're technically non-relative placement for right now in the process of adopting her. Parental rights are getting terminated in an expedited manner since both birth parents have lost their rights previously and there was drug exposure.

Wow! That's crazy fast! Do you mind sharing what state you live in?

Peanut is mom's 4th child. She doesn't have custody of any of her other children either. But here we are, 5 months in, still on a reunification track. We're hopeful to be able to adopt her as well, though.

We're in FL. The state told us that there's no way that birth mom can parent the baby. There is a very slim chance that the dad can but didn't show up at the hearing to fight to parent her, and there is no other family. So even though they can't guarantee us anything, they've said it's more of a matter of when the adoption is finalized than if it will be. As long as we pass our home study, we should be good.

Seems doubtful that the bio mom of your peanut will end up parenting.

Congrats Waypasatready. What a wonderful turn of events!!

I wanted to share a new syringe I have been using. Mosie Baby. It's so much better than the plastic oral syringes I used previously. It rounded and comfortable and designed for at home insemination. I used it this past week and hopefully its makes the difference!
