UPDATE: Well, I called the m/w, and they said that testing progesterone is not within their protocols. They referred me to a perinatologist. He only had one appointment this week. It was for tomorrow in a town an hour and a half away. And Isaiah is still in the hospital. The next available is next week. I don't even know if it's worth going then. I will be at 7 weeks, and it is likely that if there is a problem it will be too late. I think I just need to resign myself to the fact that this is out of my control. This baby will stick or won't stick, and it's not up to me. On the up side, I did start experiencing some significant nausea today
Hi Ladies! I am not sharing this publicly just yet, but I got a BFP last week. This was totally unexpected, as my cycle was really strange. I figured I hadn't even ovulated because of the stress of the surgery. I had fertile CM really early, and it stopped before I would normally be ovulating. I wasn't temping because I couldn't find my thermometer. I had a bit of pinkish spotting while we were in the hospital after the surgery, but AF never showed. Then I started getting more EWCM, which was very strange. About a week after that, I decided to test. If I had ovulated with the first EWCM, I would be pg, and apparently I did and I was. I am really excited and happy about it, but at the same time really intimidated and scared. The last three pg ended in losses for me, so I will have a really hard time accepting this as real until I get beyond the first trimester. I had thought for sure after the last loss that I'd be going to a doctor immediately and demanding hormone testing, but now I am not feeling really motivated to do that. I'm not sure why. I definitely had a luteal phase defect after my PPAF, and some of my recent cycles I had spotting before AF. My last cycle (December) was completely normal. WWYD?
