My progesterone looked good. But everything does indicate that I am estrogen dominant... which I did find in my medical records from a trip to a specialist 2.5 years ago.... this just confirms it.
The good new is.. the Progesterone cream DOES work. The bad news apparently is... out of balance hormones can mean bad eggs.
None of my plan really changes. The same things to fix the possible progesterone issue, fix the estrogen.
I called the lab people. they say that if I'd only used 80mg of the cream, that my level indicates high natural progesterone.
luteal phase of pregnancy goes from 75 (o) to 275 (pregnancy) they'd have expected to see my levels in the 200's for just using the cream twice... mine was 353. Their opinion is I was pregnant when I collected the sample, but with out bloodwork for a beta they can't tell me for sure. After so many faint lines on multiple tests... I think they're right.
KEEP IN MIND.. this was salival progesterone, not blood.. so the numbers are different than you're used to seeing.
so this makes 4 losses in 7 months... *sigh*
Now I get to fix myself, and we try again this summer. With any luck at least.
Looks like DH's back to work will happen between March 4th and 11th.. which means we get one more cycle. I'm not doing anything different. Nothing's going to fix the estrogen issue that quickly, so I'll just leave things be. I'll do what I did last month supplement wise, but will forgoe the cream and the stress.
Especially since knowing he's going it stressful in itself.
Nicholle at this point we NEED him to return to work. We aren't in any debt or anything, but I know it's causing some strain for his ex's finances (His court order only granted her support while he's working.. he's only worked 1 full week (and two partials, but she doesn't get support for partial weeks) since June. Plus, the sooner he goes back, the sooner I can get my thyroid fixed!
DH's hours, and wage info are in.. and the verdict is no Medical Assistance budget. What should have been a job to put $30k in our pocket by June, will infact put only about 10k. This also means no vacation, no move, no OB or RE (except for my thyroid appts)... ARGH.
He needs a new job, with a company who actually does what they say they will. They decided to hire more men, so they're getting less hours. Usually he'd get paid for 104 hours a week.... instead he's getting 55hrs paid.
I know the ideal thing would be I got out and find a full time job that pays well... but then I don't see him AT ALL until June...not once... and I don't know if I really want a baby that badly right now....
CD8.... last cycle was a dream. Really, no joke. Almost no O pain, and then a rather mild (just long) AF.
Well holy hell.. this cycle is NOT going to be easy. It's only cd 8.. and my ovaries are on fire. I'm not doing anything this cycle... nothing to make it any easier to get pregnant at least...but this pain is reminiscent of the soy cycle....
I wish I could look inside and make sure it's not a cyst.... I really don't need to deal with that right now.
