Oh no juneau. Hang on little bean! Has she called yet with your number? They are skilled at those bland, non-emotional voice mail phones. Any other person calling for any other reason and we wouldn't notice that tone, but for this reason, that absence of tone means so much. Anxiously awaiting good news for you.
1Plus2 -- Glad you're passing this monumental milestone. Will you be having another scan soon, or waiting until 12 weeks? I know it's hard, but hang in there.
I wish there was a way this could all be easier.
So, I've way increased my supplementation today, and I can tell you, I finally *feel* pregnant. My bbs hurt, I've been queasy, and I've hardly been able to keep my eyes open. I know it's all the progesterone supplement, but it's the naturally-occurring progesterone that causes those feelings in other pregnancies, so I finally feel *normal.*
The natural stuff plus prometrium worked for me in my last pregnancy. The natural stuff alone worked in my pregnancy with Riley-Grace, but I've never had luck with prometrium alone. (Of course, that was oral prometrium, where I'm doing vaginal now.) What I've done today and will continue to do until I get results back next week is double my morning and night suppositories and add 200 mg prometrium as a suppository at midday. If that all doesn't work, I think we'll look towards injections.
DH told me when he got home from work tonight that he saw a 1st trimester progesterone chart that ranged from 9 to 47. I'd been told previously that 15 is the lowest pregnancy-sustainable number, and am at 8.1. If 9 is indeed the lowest safe number, then I'm not that far off. For those with progesterone issues, what have you heard from your OBs/MWs? Am I only halfway to where I need to be, or just shy of the minimum?
I appreciate all you mommies, and your wisdom and support. May we all move into safe places with healthy, growing babies very soon...
