Thanks for being so welcoming ladies.

About progesterone...the placenta starts making appreciable levels of it at 7 weeks and usually by 9-10 weeks totally takes over. Before that you have your ovaries/corpus luteum. In IVF they supplement because they suck out a lot of the contents of the follicles so the corpus lutea are not as productive as in a regular cycle but you should also have quite a few of them so together they are probably OK.

In a medicated FET you basically have to completely supplement as your body is not making any of its own. I take suppositories 3x per day and I also give myself PIO shots. A huge part of getting through first tri for me will be getting off butt shots haha!

I am still too scared to put a ticker up.

Hi everyone and congratulations!

ILT: it's tomorrow. But I took a Clearblue with weeks indicator last night and it said 2-3 weeks pregnant. According to some people on the interwebs that should mean my beta is >201. I hope they are right!

I think I'll hold off on the ticker until I see a heartbeat.

3 chords - congratulations!!

I have been told to keep taking my progesterone twice a day until 11 weeks. Then go down to just once a day, the evening dose for another week. So I will be 12 weeks when I stop completely.

Yep BMW still cramping!

I still find it so weird that my clinic has stopped my progesterone, can't understand it. Should I be concerned?
