Nichole-Have they even done bloodwork? I pretty much called and said I wanted the bloodwork and they agreed. I hate that they make you wait a year, especially knowing you have anovulatory cycles...that's not very fair to make you wait.

lala-I know! We've only had rain today, but I've been seeing pics of snow all over fb lol I'm actually from Buffalo, MO (super small town) and moved to Stl to be with DW about 3 years ago.
I use the wondfo and I use Clearblue Easy Digitals. I use wondfos starting cd10 and when they start getting darker I start using the cb digis too. I've used answer and first response and was not pleased with them. The lines didn't show up like they did on the wondfos even.

First doctor did blood work and said everything looked great except my vit d. I was super low on that and have been on supplements since. I went to the second dr about 6 months later and they decided not to so blood since it was done previously. If everything is still so wonky after about 4 months of losing weight then I am going to research reproductive endocrinologist. Someone on here suggested it because some insurances will cover or partially cover them.

Nikki - I wonder if they say they can't allow it because then someone else would be doing the testing and very lab is different? Was it the std testing you asked about or bloodwork?

Emily - I don't know if spotting always caused by low progesterone but this is what the nurse just wrote to me (through the hospital portal thingy) "Each month your progesterone level drops if you do not get pregnant and this initiates a cycle. It may be that the spotting a few days before your cycle is caused by the progesterone levels starting the drop."

I talked to my doctor tonight about my concern of spotting before af sense my progesterone looked good. She said she didn't think that I would spot with level of 16 that I had but I could do supplements if I wished. We decided that we'd rechecks progesterone on Monday along with my estrogen. I'm very curious to see what it is on Monday sine I should start my spotting around then...maybe it will show that my levels have dropped which would explain any spotting that I may get and unfortunately, indicate no pregnancy.

Alissa- All I asked the FS nurse is if I can go to my general doc for all blood work... and it might save me some money. She said she doesn't think it would work because her office would be "ordering" it. She claimed it was on the line of fraud.

I mentioned earlier that OH and I finally got around to tackling a DIY pinterest project that I have been dying to do. Here are pics of the final product-- our new headboard!

My friends weren't going to find out the gender of their 2nd, but eventually they let us throw them a gender reveal party. It was a lot of fun!
Oooh I like the sound of a gender reveal party.....hmmm

Morning ladies! Amanda the headboard looks good! I love Pinterest projects!

Nikki I'm sorry DHs SA came back low again. But, it has improved. Have you looked into other supplements on your own to help? Might be worth trying before shelling out a ton of money on IVF. If it were me, I don't think I would waste the time, heartache, or money on iui for such a low chance. My friend just had 3 failed iui and spent a ton of money on it, now saving for ivf. And that's with insurance bc ours only has a lifetime of $15000.

AFM I *think I O'd? No idea. Had to have been between Tuesday and Wednesday bc I had ewcm up till Tuesday night, didn't check cause we bd, then Thursday it was back to normal. I checked my temp this am and it was 98.34 which is def a post O temp. My boobs don't hurt though, which is weird. Ah so frustrating not to opk or temp!!!! But oh well.
