Xerxella AAM - Cervix down to 1cm which is where the cerclage is at. I think that's all that's holding them in now. Let's just all hope and pray it holds for at least another 4 weeks.

But, maybe B looks better? There may be less fluid, by its hard to tell for sure. It's still pretty bad. A continues to look great. If he'd jut quit kicking my cervix, it might be alright.

chuord Sorry had to eat - was starving after that! All good two separate sacks with foetal poles, two magical heartbeats I could see fluttering. Still very new heartbeats (117 and 100) so going back for another scan next week to check growth etc.

Over the moon happy! Lol oh and still lots of swollen follicles from the last cycle.
Those with nausea she's got me on b6 (pyridoxine) three times a day as a more natural assistance.
OB is lovely, she does do vaginal twins, but was happy that my birth plan is to do whatever is best for the babies. Dh is beside himself, it's getting real now
Will sort pics when I work it out xxxx

iixivboots @adiejan My progesterone level with my son was apparently borderline even after clomid, about 15. I took suppositories for 12 weeks. Everything turned out perfectly, very uneventful pregnancy. I hope you can get in touch with your providers and get some peace of mind!
08-31-2014 07:05 PM
Tear78 Adiejan, I'm pretty sure that the progesterone levels you supplement don't show up in your blood, though I'm also not positive about it with the PIO shots. I don't think my clinic measured it either. Thinking of you! Those early weeks are sooooooo nerve wracking! Hugs!
08-31-2014 06:42 PM
adiejan Thank you so much everyone! I am so incredibly thankful for all of you. I hadn't even thought of the spotting and there hasn't been any at all. I think I'm going to do a suppository in the morning. I just don't think it can hurt at all. Thanks again everyone. This place feels like family

alivewithyou @adiejan : I don't have a lot of experience with progesterone (I only tested once in the beginning and it was in the 30's), but just wanted to let you know I am sending good vibes for your baby (or babies!). I really do think that the fact you aren't spotting is great but I too would probably want to add extra to feel more confident.
08-31-2014 03:41 PM
tracyamber @adiejan @chuord is right. If you want the suppositories the doctor will prescribe them. To be honest I have always been on injections and after the transfers continued the injections and suppositories until the 12th or 13th week. @Sourire has a point too in that if it was a problem , you'd be spotting. I think waiting until Tuesday should be fine.

chuord Adie - instinct is also important, if you feel like you need extra, you could use the suppositories - really you can make the doc (any doc) write you another script, since you are the one paying it's really no be deal to them... I agree with sourire re the spotting and not worrying unless you are though. Basically you are pregnant, the more relaxed you can stay the better for you and the babies, if the supplements being increased will relax you go for it! If the re doesn't write a new script get your family doc to. My IF doc is big on everyone taking everything, it's weird how they vary so much! Hugs, seriously do what makes you feel best.
Tracy I totally understand, I had to turn the new mobile view off (bottom of menu) cos it was driving me mad, thankfully Chrissy knew how

Sourire I know that progesterone medication doesn't always show up in blood tests. However I've always taken progesterone in suppository form so I don't know if it's the same for the injections.

My clinic doesn't even bother testing progesterone levels in early pregnancy if you're already on supplemental progesterone, I guess they just assume that the dose they've given is enough to sustain a pregnancy!

A progesterone level that is insufficient to sustain a pregnancy will usually manifest via spotting, so if you don't have any spotting that's a good sign!

The danger with taking your extra suppositories is that if you don't have enough to make it to 10-12 weeks and your Dr doesn't prescribe you more, then you'll have a sudden drop in progesterone level when you stop taking them, and your body might interpret a sudden drop in progesterone as a sign to shed your endometrial lining which could be dangerous for your pregnancy.

adiejan @tracyamber - I am only on the PIO. I have some suppositories that I really just feel like using. The doctor honestly felt like he didn't really want to deal with it on his vacation. He said we will test my levels again on Tuesday. He said I am probably not making any on my own due to the FET. So wouldn't it make sense to increase it?!? Ughhh so annoyed...feel like doing my own increase!
