and I feel pretty good about it. I arrived early and then was called back into the exam room as soon as I left the reception area, which was nice- good to see they're working efficiently. A medical student went over the 12 page questionnaire I had to complete before I arrived, and then I saw the doctor. It was just an office visit, no physical exam or anything.

He said all the testing my OB did was very thorough, and ordered just a few more blood tests (homocysteine and thyroid antibodies). I'll also have a sonohysterogram, once my next cycle starts.

AND he wants me to supplement progesterone. I was kind of surprised by this- my progesterone levels have always seemed fine. But they were only tested early on, with my first betas. He explained that they might have started out fine, but then dropped at the point when the placenta was supposed to take over.

I'm actually going to start the progesterone this month. I explained about the "oops" we had a few days ago, when I dtd on CD10 then ovulated CD12, a few day earlier than what I was expecting. I was TTA until I could see the RE.

YAY!!!! I am glad they are supplementing progesterone. My numbers were on the low end of normal and while 1 doctor says they are normal, my doctor said, here is progesterone. I truly think it has helped me. I am so glad that this doctor seems like a good fit for you! Bring on the rainbow!!!

Thank you *kiliki* for my beautiful siggy!
