The Progesterone Blues

So, my progesterone level was only 9 today. They like to see it at 10 or higher. The last time we did this, it was 30 on day 21. So, I had to drive back down to Newport Beach late this afternoon and pick up some progesterone supplements from the doctor's office.

The nurse was really sweet and she said that they've had many women turn out to be pregnant with a low level like mine. Okay... I hope I'm one of those women.

Now I'm crabby because I just got off the phone with my husband and his tour may be extended. Seems his boss is attempting to book a gig in Beirut. That makes me mad because I don't like the idea of my husband in an area where there is instability and violence, and if I'm not pregnant that means we're moving on to injectables and I was counting on him to help me with that. A delay in his return will put that responsibility back on me.

Sigh...

Why does this have to be so difficult?

I wish I could answer that last question. I don't know why it is so difficult. What I do know is that you can push through it and you will. Chances are, you won't need to worry about next cycle at all...you'll be pregnant!! :)

The age old question: why does this have to be so hard. I am sorry but hopefully it will turn out well! Hang in there.

Oh, I hate that question - we all ask it don't we!? I am so anxious to read an update! Praying for you now. My close friend just delivered her second after 5 years of trying with no explanations as to why she would not conceive!
Have you tried progesterone cream too?

Maybe...even though this has been so hard....as a reward, you will have the best baby in the world, because God knows it was so hard to concieve him or her that you deserve a good, easy baby! LOL!
The waiting is the hardest part. I am praying for you!!!
