My progesterone level from last week came back at 9.5. The first test was at 20.5, I know too good to be true. Over the two weeks I was thinking on how it was possible for my body to have recovered and started producing enough Progesterone. I was happy but couscous. I am waiting for the Pharmacy to send me the shots so I can start as soon as possible. Oh well, the short happy ride is over I guess and welcoming sore bottoms but that is a small price to pay.
I wonder if stopping the HC has something to do with the drop in progesterone, I was only taking 5 mg/day so I don't think that will have a huge impact but it is possible that some of the progesterone being produced is converting to cortisol.
I am also going to repeat the ultrasound tomorrow so they can measure the heart beat. I would have preferred to do it next week but the doctor insisted I do it this week. I am a little scared and I hate internal ultrasounds.
I am also starting to feel nauseous. Today I have been feeling it the whole day. By the end of the day I am usually exhausted and my lower back is killing me. I will have to do some exercise daily to deal with the lower back issue. I think changing our mattress to something less cushiony might help too. We shall see.
