The Fat Lady is warming up off stage - Elizabeth Unexplained
Lots of data but no answers
The Fat Lady is warming up off stage

First of all, thanks everyone for the supportive comments on the previous entry. It helps a lot.

That said, things aren't looking so good. My temperature was down to the coverline this morning. For those of you who haven't been obsessivly charting for the past year+, that is not a good sign. In fact, my temperature was at it highest on the day of my last entry, which was 8DPO (days post ovulation). This is a pattern I've seen a lot. It leads me to believe that the problem is I'm not producing enough progesterone, a theory that was seconded by my primary doctor, but my test results supposedly indicated enough progesterone. I'm not sure I believe that. Sigh.

Of course its not over until I see blood and lots of it. It could still work out. It was a good cycle, with a nice clear ovulation and good timing on our parts. There was the whole Clomid headache again, but that's a small price to pay for a better shot at a baby.

One of these days I will have my own anecdotes to contribute to the breast feeding rants, its just looks like 36 weeks from not is not likely.

Ah, booger. I hate that impending feeling, with a low temp to boot. At least you didn't waste at HPT (right?).

My money is still on borderline low prog, esp with an LP so short.

Yeah, its just convincing the fertility doctor that progesterone is the culprit that's the problem. He seems to believe that all humans have a 14 day LP. Perhaps I should inform him that I'm really an elf. :P

No pregnancy tests were harmed during the making of this post. I have a vast stockpile that came with the OPKs I bought off the internet and I haven't touched them in months. I noticed a correlation between peeing on an HPT and getting my period that very same day. :)

Luteal Phase. The second half of your period, the part after you ovulate. Also known to people who are charting and trying to conceive as the two week wait.
