I just got off the phone with my Doctor’s nurse. She told me that they want to keep me on 100mg of Clomid this cycle (which I had already assumed) and that he did not want to put me on any sort of progesterone supplement. He normally prescribes that for 9-10 day LPs, and since mine was 11, he wants me to try another cycle without it. If I really want to, I can go in on July 1st for a Day 23 progesterone level test (forgot the name of it)…and if mine is severly low, they would start me on Prometrium immediately.
This would be an out-of-pocket test for me and I have zero idea what it would cost. Do any of you ladies out there know anything about short LPs or have any advice for me on this? **edit** I talked to my local clinic (4 blks away) and they can do it for me for $70. Seriously considering it. Opinions? **
I’m also going to start the FertiliTea this month that I won in Kate’s DUCKFEST contest yesterday, and I know that contains Vitex, which I’ve heard has helped with short LPs for other women. Maybe I should just do the FertiliTea and skip the progesterone test this month and see what happens?
There are just so many variables in this journey… hoping & praying that I pick the right ones…
On top of my hormones and being sad that I’m not preggo again, my husband’s Grandmother is in ICU and in critical condition…she most likely will not make it much longer, and it’s hard on all of us. This woman is ALWAYS the center of attention and completely spoiled and hysterical and loving…and I’m sure she loves that in the last days of her life, it’s all about her – who can get to St. Louis to see her before she’s gone, etc… Grannie Annie…we love you…
My best friend from college called me today to talk about everything. She just had a little girl in January, and she is one of the kindest, sweetest people you will ever meet. We met in choir in college (we went to a Lutheran Liberal Arts college in Minnesota together – Con.Cordia Col.lege) and she has always been stronger in her faith than me. I was raised in a family where we went to church & Sunday School every week and I really to believe in God & I believe in the importance of faith – I even work part-time for a local church here in town…but I just forget sometimes how important it is to think about it every day and be thankful for what I have.
Long story short, she just sent me this forward to try to make me feel better today (I kind of broke down on the phone with her).
If God brings you to it, He will bring you through it.
Happy moments, praise God.
Difficult moments, seek God.
Quiet moments, worship God.
Painful moments, trust God.
Every moment, thank God.
It’s a good reminder, isn’t it?
