Well I just got the official results. My progesterone came back at 6.0 which is higher than my usual 1 or 2, but still not high enough to have O'ed. I'm waiting for a call back for my follow up appt. because now we have to move on to more invasive treatments - I figure that will be injectibles. IVF is out of the question as we absolutely cannot afford that.

Suffice it to say I'm rather bummed today. That combined with the fact I'm having bladder issues that I need to see a specialist about has left me pretty down in the dumps lately. It's really hard to stay positive after 3 years. Sorry ladies, I'm sooooo happy for all the BFP's around here lately, just wish one of them was me.

Interesting...I have progesterone draws and my midwife said that anything over 3-5 confirms ovulation. Of course the ideal is higher than that...

I hope that the next step in your plan produces a BFP!!

I'm so sorry, Candie. 3 years is a long time, I know. You are a fighter and someday you will tell your child how much you went through for him and just how much he is wanted/needed/loved. Please don't give up. It will all be worth it in the end.

I hope you feel better (all around) very, very soon. Take care of yourself, hon. We are all here for you if you need us, anytime.

Is it possible you are Oing but it is a weak O? Or that you have a progesterone deficiency? I have a progesterone deficiency and I was actually pregnant one cycle that my progesterone tested at 0.4. That is when my OB realized I had a big issue with progesterone (I lost that peanut because the progesterone was so low). I went on supplements after that loss.

Thanks for the support, ladies.

I'm still waiting for my next RE appt to be scheduled. Hopefully they'll call me today.

Lizzy - I was wondering the same thing. Do you mind me asking how far along you were when you lost your little bean? I'm so sorry you had to go through that.

6.0 is the highest it's ever been, it's usually between 0 and 3.0. The reason I was wondering is the last 3 days I have had extremely sensitive nipples and felt really "stretchy" in my abdomen. It's possible that it's AF signs but I don't see how if I didn't "O". I've never had regular cycles, I pretty much don't get AF unless it's brought on by meds, so I don't experience PMS. All I know is that when I was pg with my DS, I had extremely sensitive nipples and that has never happened otherwise. Of course I'm grasping at straws (we all do). I'll definitely ask when the Dr. phones me. I have an appt. with my family Dr. next Wed. so if I'm stilling having symptoms I'll get her to do a pg test to be sure.

It's just been a rough week. I've been taking anti-depressants since April and have been feeling good for the first time in years. This last round of Clomid though really played havok with my hormones and really put me in the dumps so to speak for about 2 weeks. That combined with my bladder issues (basically I've had bladder infection like symptoms 24 hours a day for a month) have made it hard to stay positive. The bladder issues could be a life long condition called interstial cystitis which, if I dwell on it, gets me really down. All of this combined has made it really hard to stick to my Weight Watchers plan. I'm still down 15 lbs but keep gaining and losing the same 2 lbs because I'm such an emotional eater. I have a lot left to lose and it's just been really hard to keep my focus on that lately.

Wow, I sure rambled on there. Thanks to anyone who actually read that. I guess I just really needed to vent a little. Thanks again ladies for your continued support. I guess every once in a while we all need a little "woe is me" time.

I agree with becky- my RE alsa said over 2 is ovulatory...

and from what I understand- progesterone, even if you do not need it, can't hurt. I'm going to be on progesterone, even tho I don't have a deficency- my RE thinks it will help give me an extra edge.
