You tell me

Thursday, May 21, 2009

So I guess my "acceptable" (according to regular doc) progesterone test at peak+7 was 6.4, but the RE said that they like to see it above 10. You tell me, is that something my regular doctor should have picked up on?! Regular doc told me it was fine! Mr. A is not impressed with regular doc right now.....

SO, the RE appt was easy as pie! He does not see it necessary to do any of his own re-testing (at this point), and he wrote me a prescription for clo.mid due to my progesterone results. He said it usually works great in candidates like me/us, so he sounded very optimistic. I'll hop on that train! And he warned the chance of twins goes up to 5-8%....is that a bad thing?! Two babies for the price of one?! (Of course I realize it is more for me to carry and the babies aren't usually born as big, but...).

Obviously, since I'm smack in the middle of this cycle, I'll have to wait until next cycle to take it, and of course, if I stay regular on clo.mid, I will be near peak on the weekend where me, Mr. A, both my sisters and both their significant others are renting an RV to travel Vermont for our cousin's wedding (you know, all 6 of us hanging out 24 hours a day will be fun, but...). We better get the privacy-enhanced RV.....

Congrats on getting your rx and moving forward. As to travel...hmm. Bring a blanket and go out by yourselves to lie under the stars (literally and, er, euphemistically)?

That is so great your appt. was so optimistic! I have a feeling that clomid is going to do the trick for you. Is this the first time you are going to be taking it? I am assuming since it sounded like you hadn't been to an RE before... Congrats! Definitely figure out some way to make it happen on that RV, haha!!!

Glad the appointment went well. I really want to try Clomid or Femara. Twins don't sound so bad. I've personally always wanted two children, but due to age, DH and I will probably only ever be pregnant once (if we're lucky). Twins would be an ideal result for nearly anyone dealing with infertility, I think.

I'm so happy the appointment went well for you and the doctor has a diagnosis/ plan! Funny thing is my progesterone came in at 8.3 and my ob/gyn said they like to see over 15 (unmedicated), so she gave me prog. supps. Then I saw the RE a few months later and he acted like 8.3 was ok (not great but no cause for concern). I guess it's debatable?? But he does want to put me on clomid for my first treatment cycle, too...

I think your progesterone was VERY LOW. Do you have really bad PMS? :)
