QUESTION Hello all . I got a positive opk on the 8th which was cd16 for me . On cd21 (which was Feb 13) I got my progesterone levels checked and they came back as 7.79 . My nurse asked what day did I get a positive opk and after I told her she said I did ovulate and to come in for a blood pregnancy test on Fed 22 . Im frantic because when I read about different levels that women have had mine are very low, and I wonder why that is . Is it because I ovulated later ? Maybe Im over exaggerating, and I need to wait for my blood test but you Ladies know how intense this is . However my usual levels on cd21 are never above 1 . So what should I think ?! Or should I not ?!
That should be fine... Progesterone levels change in a bell curve so because you were 2-4 days early in taking the test your results would actually be about double that or more... So excited for you hun. Do let us know how things go. Wishing you so much luck honey.
Hey Ladies, I hope this week will be better for everyone. Well I did my Pregnyl injection on Friday morning cd 16 and on Saturday night I felt like I was hatching enough eggs to feed a 3rd world country lol ...the cramps were so bad and I was really hot and luckily DH and I did some BD'ing 5 hours before this. In the last couple of days I have had the most sensitive nipples that become erect if anything touches them, I am afraid I will take out someones eye lol. Shelley try to keep your chin up and keep trying, it will happen and we are so lucky to have all these fantastic women here for support and to help with our questions...... It says to wait 10 days for the dose of Pregnyl I had before testing so maybe Monday or not sure if I will just wait and see if AF turns up as every time I have thought "maybe this time" and tested AF has turned up. Here's hoping for a great week for all
Sarah - how are you?! I sincerely miss you! I sent you a PM a few days back.
Jessica - so glad to see you ovulated with the fermara! I'm not sure about the progesterone levels. I just know that mine were far too low and that was truly my first indication of a non-sticky bean! (they were only at 9 at 1 day late)
To the rest of you - I am trying to slowly catch up on all of your stories. Been trying to stay "busy" during these few months.
AFM- I'm still in the "waiting game." I do have an appointment with my FS on March 1st. He will tell me what the game plan is from there. I finally stopped the bleeding around mid-January. And have since had my first AF since the MC. Looks like things went pretty much back to normal for me. I got AF about 2 days after I normally would... so despite bleeding for over 45 days... it was still "right on time." I'm finally hitting up the gym again, figure I can take out my frustration on a treadmill and in the mean time hopefully lose a few pounds. (FS advised I do... I mean I'm no where near "HUGE" but I have put on about 20lbs since my Mom passed in Aug 2010).
Claire - sorry to hear about your OH. Sometimes men just do not seem to get it one bit!
cmdb - My loss was not unexpected, but I know how you must be feeling. It won't get easier for a long while but just know that on here is a very large support group from around the globe. One that is always willing to listen and there's almost always someone on thanks to different time zones!
Anyways girlies - I REALLY hope to stick around more permanently again. We should be clear to give it another go come April. You ladies were an amazing support base for me through everything and I hope that I can be to all of you!
(And for those of you who have yet to "meet me." My name is Crystal. I have a beautiful 5 year old daughter who keeps me on my toes. We have been TTC#2 for almost a year and a half. I took one round of Clomid 50mg and got pregnant (suspected ectopic)... MC in mid-Dec. Unfortunately my hcg levels never dropped and I have to go in for two rounds of methotrexate to remove whatever may have been left behind and I was bleeding from 2 days before my AF was due (spotting) until the middle of January!)
I have been reading this thread for a while now and I know some of the ladies on here from a couple of other threads so I guess its time I formally introduce myself to the rest of you. My name is Raven I have a wonderful 6 year old boy and I've been TTC #2 since late 2008 (minus a year because hubby was deployed). I had an HSG done in June of 11 and fell pregnant in August 11 but lost the baby in Oct 11 =( I took my first round of clomid and currently in the last week of the TWW. I had day 21 bloods done yesterday and just waiting on the results now. I have read most of your stories and think this is an amazing bunch of women. I really hope we all get our BFP's soon! baby dust to all =)
Hey raven! Big hugs and a hello to you xxx sending baby dust to you.
As for me - things slowly getting back to some sense of normality. He arrived home yesterday at lunchtime with a massive bunch of flowers and tales of how much he missed me. We had a long chat - some rowing in the middle - and he told me he spent a lot of time thinking over the weekend and he definitely wants a baby with me. And he is committed to that goal apparently - even mentioned getting loans for ivf if needed. Am taking it with a pinch of salt but we'll see where it all leads.
How's everyone else doing? Did u all have a good valentines?
