Yay for Clomid

Anybody know much about what the levels of a day 21 progesterone mean? I've been getting mine checked for the last few months. Last month the level was 15 when I ovulated on day 15 and the month before that was 7 when I ovulated on day 18. They thought the 7 was probably really okay even though it seemed low because I ovulated later. This time though with my first cycle of Clomid it was 37! I don't know what I was expecting but that seems awesome. The nurse I talked to at my doctor's office sounded all excited for me and said she sure hoped we DTD all around that time (which we did of course). Does this mean that my chances of being pregnant are higher? Or is it just a better indication of proper ovulation? Thanks!

I don't know much about Closed but that sounds exciting! Especially since the nurse was excited too! Good luck! Smile

Thank you! Yeah she was really excited! She said "Leah you over ovulated this time!" or something which at first I thought was bad like hyper stimulation or something, and I asked if that was bad and she said "No it's great!" And then she said she really hoped we DTD all around that time and I told her we did. Haha. So hopefully that means something. Of course I'm going to go insane over the next few days...tested tonight like a freak at 8DPO...obviously it was negative. I'm going to try to wait a few more days so the test will be more accurate. Haha.

Haha I really did type Clomid, but I posted this from my phone and it tries to spellcheck everything so it made it say "Closed." KUP- I'm hoping the best for you!

I have no idea, but that sounds like a good thing. Do you think "over-ovulating" could increase your chance of multiples :eek: If you ovulated more than one egg or something? I don't know a thing about this, so don't pay attention to me. Good luck!

Hehe I figured it was an autocorrect or spellcheck thing. I understood what you were saying. Smile

I actually had this weird episode last night while I was in the shower. I was thinking about the progesterone test and the nurse calling and sounding so excited for me (she's been a huge help in this TTC journey) and I had felt all night like I couldn't remember what it was she said specifically. And then BAM it hit me and I remembered. She said that I hyperovulated this time. When I realized that I thought it sounded like a possible technical term so I looked it up. And it does mean that you release multiple eggs. Two at least and maybe more. Of course after that I had two thoughts the first was Eek we can't afford multiples, the second was omg the chance that I got pregnant at all must be higher, and the third was omg I hate this 2WW which will now drive more insane than ever! Thank goodness I got called in to work on a special case for the rest of the week and already got jobs for the all the way through next Wednesday which is the day I expect AF. I'm going to need to be busy or I'll lose my mind. The nurse kept saying hyperovulating was good and she was happy for me. I hope her excitement means something too. I'm rambling now because this is the first time my brain has been free to think about me at all today...I'm going to go do aerobics and take a nap now to try to shut it down again. Haha.
