Progesterone results are in...

My progesterone level was at 7.9. The nurse said anything over 6 means I did indeed ovulate. We would be so happy if this round works; however, we have been here MANY times before and since they all have been unsuccessful the odds are against us.

Because my progesterone level was over 4, I can take Prometrium (NOT THE SHOTS!!!). What a relief! I will take 12 days of Prometrium and if I haven't started by the end of 12 days, then I take a pregnancy test at home. If it is positive YAY! If it is negative, I immediately start the FET (Frozen Embryo Transfer).

I really haven't let my mind go there yet. There as in FET. Trying to muster enough strength to try it one more time. Try it for the last time. I feel like I am on a path of no return. Pushing 34 years old and one last chance for having a baby of my own...it is scary. Matt and I went to Kansas yesterday, to Becky's funeral, and we had a really good time. It was good "quality" time. One thing that the last month has brought into our lives is closeness. We have thoroughly enjoyed each other's company and it has just been needed.

We discussed adoption, actually Matt brought it up, and he is totally fine with it. I guess we see what this FET round holds and if it doesn't work, then we will let all of it "set" in and make some tough decisions...
