YAY for more good news. I like that it came in threes.
- Woohoo! Both of those lines are very definitely there. Do you think if it's twins, it will be easier because you're already familiar with twins, or crazier, because, well, you have twins already?! I'm sorry the bleeding keeps coming up and messing with your head. I hope it goes away for good soon.
- I totally remember you, and congrats! In fact, I didn't know you'd changed your username, and every time the new one came up, I'd think of you and then remind myself, no, that's someone else.
I'm glad the Clomid worked well and quickly for you. As far as progesterone, I'd actually suggest the opposite of your guess - you were probably on progesterone simply because you were seeing an RE, not because you were deficient. In my experience (and also according to an OB, whom I asked about it), REs nearly always prescribe progesterone to their patients, regardless of deficiency. Just as a sort of CYA maneuver. I'm sure you can get it tested, though, just to be sure. FWIW, when we were TTC our first and I couldn't get my RE to order a post-O progesterone test, I went to AnyLabTestNow
and just paid $40 out of pocket to have it checked. It was fine, which is why I never bothered doing the progesterone supplements my RE prescribed. It looks like it's gotten slightly more expensive, but it's an easy and fast way to check if you don't want to mess with finding a doctor to order the test yet.
Fingers crossed for more good things to come!
