Officially Pregnant

Our infertility, miscarriage, IVF, and pregnancy journey x 2 (still waiting on pregnancy #2)

Now what?

on January 22, 2016

I’m so fucking lost I don’t even know where to begin.

This cycle everything was looking world’s better.  My e2 levels were way higher than last time, I had two great looking follicles, iui day was seemless.

Today – found out my cd21 levels for progesterone was 2.  Fucking 2.

This is the message I got from the nurse today:

HI K — YOUR PROGESTERONE CAME BACK AT 2.0 . THIS IS AN ANOVULATORY RESULT AS RESULTS ABOVE 3 ARE CONSIDERED OVULATORY. YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO CHECK A HOME PREGNANCY TEST ON JANUARY 31st. WE HAVE SEEN VERY LOW PROGESTERONES COME BACK WITH POSITIVE TESTS, SO IF IT IS POSITIVE WE WILL SEND YOU FOR BLOOD WORK THE SAME DAY. WE’LL WANT TO RECHECK A PROGESTERONE WITH YOUR BLOOD PREGNANCY TEST TO MAKE SURE IT IS INCREASING. IF YOU ARE NOT PREGNANT AND YOUR CYCLE STARTS, CALL US ON DAY 1. DR. S. MAY WANT TO ADD IN A PROGESTERONE SUPPLEMENT IF YOU ARE NOT PREGNANT.

Seriously?  The false hope?  Thanks, but no thanks.  I think what grinds my gears the most is the lack of communication or I guess I should say discussion.  They give you all this information and it’s never discussed.  No, “hey, we should probably figure out why you’re not ovulating and fix that” just, “call us and we’ll start this all over again and maybe slap a band-aid on a problem”.

So now what?  I already said we’d have to take a break until summer.  My boss, whose first marriage was torpedoed by infertility and has no children herself, gets it.  She’s super understanding, but I feel like I’m treading on thin ice sometimes with this being a new position.  Plus with the ridiculous hours the clinic has there is no way I can do anything during the month of April or May because of the crazy work schedule I’ll have.

Do I call a knee and ask for a consult?  Make a game plan?  Ask for more testing to be done?  When I look at the symptoms of estrogen dominance I feel like it’s me, but I’m pretty sure our old clinic tested for that and there was nothing abnormal to be found.

I go to my normal obgyn in February so should I be asking her to help since there would be a better chance of some sort of coverage?

Why do I have a great lining, decent e2, the right size follies, low progesterone, and normal cycles? Infertility Gods, I’m talking to you.

    I’m SO sorry. Did they give you a trigger? It seems strange to have both of those good follicles peter out! I hope you get some answers soon.
