It's supposed to help with circulation and developing a thick lining. I have problems with both circulation and thin linings so i do any little bit to help with that

Hi ladies!

I'm pretty sure I O'd yesterday, as I got my usual cramping! I'm also pretty sure that I got both follies, because I had cramping on both sides at different times of day. Fingers crossed that the lefty plumped up and we got both!

I decided not to temp, since my sleep has been weird. I also didn't really want the added stress. I'll have a blood draw on Tuesday to see my progesterone levels and I already have an RX in case I need a supplement. I don't think I will because my progesterone has always been fine in the past, but it's good to have in case the medicated cycle changed that for some reason. My lining was also 11mm on Monday, so I decided not to do anything that encourages growth like pineapple or baby asprin. Fingers and toes crossed!

All sounding good Sara! If you got both eggs your progesterone should be even higher than normal! Welcome to the tww!

Great Pinkee One step down!

I got a positive OPK yesterday, so I could O today or tomorrow. I'm hoping it will be tomorrow because I'm only CD 12 today!

Hi ladies!

I got my progesterone test done today and it came back at 13mg/mL.
The nurse's notes said that the doctor said I didn't need to take the progesterone prescription if it was about 10. Google hasn't been my friend though, because most people say that 15 is a better number for a pregnancy to happen.

I am wondering though, if it will increase to over 15 in the next few days because technically I'm only 5dpo and I think the optimal blood test is done at 7dpo.

Any thoughts?

I'd say your progesterone will probably keep increasing. Congrats on confirmation on O!

Thank Belle! How's your cycle going?

This tww is so slow! (Aren't they all?)
Praying at least one of those eggs fertilized!

Well you had one heck of a wait before your tww started Sara!

I'm 3-4 dpo today. Feeling normal! I don't usually pay too much attention to my tww anymore because I expect AF to show anyway haha

Hi ladies - I don’t think I’ve updated in here recently so thought I’d share our news: 5 of our 16 embryos are normal and my FET is scheduled for December 4th. Feeling excited but also very nervous!

Next week I go in for a hysteroscopy which I’m very afraid of because the HSG and saline sonogram hurt so bad...but with this they only use a little fluid and insert a tiny camera so maybe it won’t be as painful without all that fluid being pushed into my uterus.

Sara - so exciting! When will you test? And yes I think progesterone reaches peak around 7dpo.

Pinkee - hope you don’t have to wait too long! I generally Od later than normal on clomid.

Belle - always fx that this is your lucky month! I think if DH and I kept trying long enough I’d eventually have a healthy pregnancy but with 24 mature eggs and only 5 normal embryos, who knows how long that could have taken when you consider all the factors and odds. Hoping you get your surprise bfp - you have age and time on your side!
