I was surprised. I have been using progesterone cream once or twice a day for several months. I will keep doing this I think.
Each AM I have done a pregnancy test myself and they are always only faintly positive. Before when I had me two kids, the test was so unmistakable positive it came up bright pink before the urine even got to the control line.
Just wondering if anyone can interpret my lab results for me?
The first day of my last period was March 9th I think. We had sex only on the 24th, I think.
They want me to come back on the 16th to do an ultrasound.

I don't know, I've never had a beta, but good luck!

So I finally talked to several people at my clinic, they feel that mythyroid is within normal levels, but I'm going on some medication for it just to see if it helps. I went down for some blood draws today and got my meds. We are doing Femara with 150 iu of bravelle. It's lots cheaper than the follistim which is good but it doesn't have the pen so I have to mix the injections myself. If you pray we could use your prayers, mostly to keep calm through this cycle.

Those both seem good to me....I've always been told any progesterone over 12 is fine. Just keep doing what you're doing and try to relax! Fingers crossed for you!

Re: Blessed with children, Struggling for more Week of April 2nd

So, my ambiguous temp went up this morning... by a whopping HUNDREDTH of a degree, LOL. I really think I'm in my post-O range now but sure would like some temps a little higher, just to make sure.

I even took my temp again a second time (after I'd gotten up to input this morning's temp, laid back down, and gotten back up) and it was STILL exactly the same as it was when I'd first taken it at like 5:00-something.

Crazy cycle.

Re: Blessed with children, Struggling for more Week of April 2nd

Gah! Stupid OPKs. I took one Tuesday and it was negative, but "almost postive." Then it was clearly positive on Wednesday, w/ the test line darker than the control line. Then negative again on Thursday, and even lighter on Friday, etc. Then I took another one today since although I'm technically at the low end of my normal post-O temps, my chart was is all wonky and isn't giving me a proper coverline yet. And the OPK today was just as dark as Tuesday's, so it's another "almost positive" one. UGH!

Hmm, that is confusing! I hate opk's too! I'm having trouble with mine this cycle. From looking at your chart, it doesn't look like you O'd yet to me but cd16 could be a possibility?? if your temp goes up again tomorrow.



I had a opk with lines equally as dark and counted it negative because the next day I got one with the test line much darker than the control...then the next day (yesterday) I got the equal lines again. Today is a definite negative...but I had a temp dip this am. I thought I had O'd yesterday. Humph.
Can someone look at my chart and tell me what you think?
