Ohhh and another question.

I know in early pregnancy...your progesterone should be around 10 or higher, but what is the normal level just after ovulation?

Just wondering. I had a message from the nurse so could not ask her.

Thanks!

Well that's great you didn't miss the window of opportunity.
In general, the midluteal (middle of the second half of the cycle) progesterone in a non-pregnant patient is 8 to 10, but can be as high as 20 ng/ml. In a pregnancy cycle, it should be greater than 10 to 12 ng/ml to have a better chance of a good pregnancy outcome, but in general, we like to see 16 or over.

Everyone you ask will have slightly different numbers. Also there are differences as to what to do if the levels are low, with some docs giving progesterone (pills, shots, suppositories) and others not treating unless there has been some proof of a preexisting low progesterone in non-pregnancy cycles. Hope this helps!

These lucky husbands are not going to know what hit 'em when we finally do conceive and cut back on the BD'ing part. Not saying we are going to cut them off or anything. DH likes when I initiate things.
Anyway, Happy BD'ing

Thanks! That's definitely helpful. According to my blood test she could tell that I hadn't ovulated yet. Last time blood tests showed + for ovulation, but then when I tested + for pregnancy...my prog level had dropped to 2! It started coming up on its' own, but too little too late! So, this time I'm armed with progesterone supplements (oral) to start taking 3 days post LH surge!! I'm excited.

I already warned dh about a possibly very "busy" weekend!!

Hopefully this is your month. Maybe you should take a little relaxing get away this weekend so you can clear your mind & relax. I've heard that can help. It took my brother & sis-in-law. 1 year b/c they were so stressed they took a vacation & that's when it happened.

GOOD LUCK

A vacation would be great, but he has to work on Sunday. I think the stress of spending money would be worse than the FUN of ttc!!! We're just a bunch of goof balls at home! I think too, much more relaxed at home! (not worrying about how our doggies are doing)

but, I appreciate all your well wishes for this cycle. I'm not getting my hopes up too high since it's the first real cycle since the m/c, but it happened really quickly for us the first go...so I'm hoping.
