Hormone levels in ... more good news

Considering we don't really have any information right now as to what is going on inside my body, we are trying to stay positive.

I believe it was a good sign that my progesterone and estrogen levels from this morning came back good!

Progesterone: they want it to be >6, mine was 34.5
Estrogen: they want it to be >300, mine was 799

So on Sunday I start weaning off the meds: down from three to two progesterone (Endometrin) tablets per day which means my mid-day dose will go away ... my poor MALE office mate - who watches me crawl to the floor during lunch will stop wondering what the heck I'm doing! And I need only apply 1 estrogen patch to my skin on Sunday (instead of 2).

This information has no bearing on the success of this pregnancy (except that it means that things aren't over yet - but that would have come with it's own symptoms) nor does it mean anything about how many or how few babies are (hopefully safely) tucked in that womb. All this really is, is good news - something I'm not usually the bearer of.

In other news today, the most recent anonymous post (near bottom this time) did not go without my notice. I would like to respond - as I've now received my SECOND "controversial" comment since In2MeSee's inception ... all within the same post! Go figure ... I've been writing for nearly 2 years and this one post has solicited less than overly supportive comments ... hmmmm. But I digress for now, I will respond in another post.

For now, I'm just grateful for some good news!

  1. Great news on the labs! I hope that means everything is going well in there. ;-)

    "Anonymous" is way out of line, in my opinion. (Not sure if it's the same person for both comments or two different people.) I'll be interested to read your post about the comments.

  3. Congratulations! I think doing fertility treatments, it's natural to want to know what is going on at every second of your pregnancy! Just know that all is well, and the ultrasound will really tell you all you need to know.

    As for that second anonymous comment, that is just totally off the wall and mean. I don't allow anonymous comments just for that reason. You never know who is out there reading your blog!

    PS: on Anonymous' second post, words fail me.

    That second Anonymous post isn't worth your energy. If you feed it, it will grow.

  7. Yay for good hormone levels! Hoping for a great ultrasound soon!

    That second anonymous comment..I don't even get why someone would bother reading a blog and going to the trouble to comment just to say something like...and then stay anonymous b/c clearly they know it's rude. I mean, seriously. I wouldn't even respond Polly. It ain't worth it.

  9. There is an option in Blogger by which you can disallow people leaving Anonymous comments...Atleast stupid comments will have a face after that!

  10. Great numbers Polly! Your body seems to actually be understanding what it has to do right now!!!
    I read your post and said "wow" to DH- re: your meds... I was on *4* vivelle patches, 3 prometriums, and one estrace pill per day. Clearly my body had no clue whatsoever what it was supposed to do. LOL.

    High hopes for a good strong sticky emby... I think the stars really are lining up for you two this time!
    *hugs*

    btw, anon... just isn't worth it...

  12. I think it is really lame to post anonymously to pass judgement on people. I didn't read what they wrote but I always found anon people to be cowards. I ignore them now. :D

    CONGRATS! Love all the good news!

  13. AWESOME news :)
    Looking forward to the U/S
    ROFLAO on the office lunchtime comment!!!

    On the note of Anonymous he/she is not worth your time at all Polly!

  14. I'm so glad your levels are still looking good and I have continued to hope that all turns out well for you. Yay CCRM!! As for the anonymous poster, there is such an obvious lack of maturity there...it seems that the poster was more concerned about lashing out and rolling her eyes than truly understanding what it is like to suffer through IF. That person chooses to continue to be ignorant and I would not dignify that with an answer. Focus on yourself and your good news - ignore the ignorance.

  15. Woo-hoo, Polly! Those are some great numbers! I didn't start weaning until much, much later. I guess your body knows just what to do. :)

    I'm still praying for you, and I can't wait to read all about your ultrasound!!!

  19. Oh, I am so praying for you! Regarding Anonymous - You can't know what it's like to walk in someone else's shoes - but you sure can freaking be sensitive. It's not like when someone is 30 and married and livein a totally kid friendly neighborhood - you should tell them to enjoy the freedom and savings they must be racking in. Yeah - thanks. I've spent all that savings - on IVF - and you have it for your kids college. Go ahead and even look at our shoes - they've walked roads you've never even dreamed of.
