11dpo for me. my clinic tested my progesterone on 8dpo and it was a little lower than they'd like, so they upped that to three times a day. i really hate taking progesterone, so that was pretty much my worst case scenario. i am still exhausted (going to bed at 8pm). my breasts are killing me, nipples on fire, super bloated. i haven't gained any weight, though, which is weird because i feel like a balloon. i think we are going to test on 12 dpo, maybe? it is a fine line between hopefulness and crushing disappointment.

mrsandmrs, well said. our situations sound very similar. breast/nipple tenderness is very unusual for me, but I still worry it's my mind making it happen. I'm sorry you have to take progesterone. 

we won't have to be walking that terrible line for much longer! I just want to know, you know?!

Mrs- what is it about the progesterone that you don't like? Do you get side effects? I am currently on 200mg a day. It totally scares my DP away fom my lady bits which is kinda hard (but perhaps a preparation for life with a young child) but otherwise I don't notice anything negative.

Friederike - if i use the pills vaginally, the discharge grosses me out and irritates my lady bits (and yes, cuts into my sex life considerably!). if i take it orally, it puts me right to sleep. for at least six hours. i cant win either way. i am taking a 200 mg three times a day.

Oh my. That's really hard. I am sorry you have to endure all this. But better they caught the low levels early with your test, than chancing to loose an otherwise healthy pregnancy, right? If you're testing today, I wish you god luck!

friederike, you're right. it is better to catch it early and i would rather suffer the wrath of progesterone pills than lose it. i forgot to mention that the progesterone also messes up my temps so that it's impossible to read my chart reliably, which is super frustrating for me.

 

 

AFM.

uhm? i was not sure that these things could actually show a line? i was so surprised, i took three. apparently it IS possible.

 

700

I title this "3AM, By Lamp Light"

BFN this morning. I'll test again tomorrow but it feels more like AF is coming.

Mrs- did you pee on some more stuff lately *lol*?

Friederike, I got BFN this morning too, using FRER tests. My luteal phase is normally long so AF is due tomorrow or the next day, and I will just hold out hope until then redface.gif
