See what CafeMoms are saying about saving time this holiday season..
Here is one of today's tests (7/27), two others in replies 71 & 72
AF has started. Not super heavy yet, but I can tell it will be soon. My OB hasn't called with the hcg #s from yesterday yet, but I know it'll be negative. I plan to ask him to test my fsh (since its been at least 1.5 years) and my thyroid. I'll also ask him to prescribe the progesterone suppositories for my LP for each cycle. I think this current cycle was a good one - I clearly O'd & had good progesterone with those suppositories. I'd rather not use Clomid if I don't need to since it thins your lining & I'd used it for 4 cycles. I really think that if we just keep doing this, it'll (hopefully) work at some point.
I do need to get serious about weight loss, though. Maybe I'll start going to the Y once my 4 yo starts preschool and work on calorie stuff now.
My OB did call. I guess they just did the qualitative blood test, he wasn't happy about that, but it doesn't really matter. He said my progesterone # was 5.9, which really seems pretty decent considering I started AF the next day. I could tell he would have rather I did Clomid, but I only have 1-2 more cycles of being able to do that so he's fine with just sending in the progesterone supplement prescription. He was sending it in already - which is probably better than calling & asking for it when I O. He also sent the lab orders for the fsh, estradiol & something else. He said that if my cycles are starting naturally, my fsh is still fine, but he was still willing to do the test.
