Rollergirl: Yay on the longer sleep, boo on the spotting! Glad it isn't AF yet, though. I did have light spotting one of these cycles -- so confusing! KMFC for a nice long LP for you.
Steelermom: How did I miss that you had a BFP? So sorry about the chemical. I had two of those while trying to conceive DD. They suck. Prog is normally measured 7 dpo, and ideally should be over 10 on a natural cycle. It decreases after that point, so a 10 dpo result is kind of inconclusive, from what I understand. I've tested mine at 7 dpo lots of times, and it is usually less than 10, and I've conceived twice (spontaneously), as well as had those two chemicals. (One was a late-ish loss, one was healthy DD.) Could low prog be causing the chemicals? I think so. But low prog can also just indicate that something's not right with the embryo, and the pregnancy isn't going to make it. I think it's kind of anyone's guess, particularly when the situation is confounded by breastfeeding, which, frankly, I don't think is well understood by fertility experts. Anyway, big hugs and good luck for this cycle, whatever you end up doing!
Ammiga: Sounds just like me. DD is 19 months, and this is my 7th cycle trying. Here's hoping a sticky BFP is just around the corner for both of us!
Hopeful2009: Yay!! Exciting news on the almost-positive OPK. Wishing you great luck this cycle!
AFM: 6 DPO. Wishing I had a more positive attitude. I feel confident that I will eventually get pregnant and have a second baby, but having trouble shaking pessimistic thoughts about this cycle. I really feel like visualizing the outcome I want will help, but having trouble feeling it. Thoughts?
**Back to add to Steelermom: Also, you can have a successful pregnancy with consistently lower-than-normal progesterone, btw. It does happen, so low (or low-ish) progesterone doesn't mean you can't get a nice sticky pregnancy anyway.
