I heart progesterone {take 2}

I just have to say it again: I love progesterone!

After taking it for a day and half the spotting stopped completely. This is a wonderful and amazing turn of events for a chronic spotter like me. I was unsure if the progesterone would do anything because the spotting started at such an odd time, but it did. I'm spot free.

I told DH that I wish I could get a permanent prescription for monthly progesterone for the rest of my pre-menopausal life. That's how much I love it.

Going strong at 3dpo - but the first week is always easy. ;)

We're off to Sa.n Fr.ancisco on New Year's Eve for a wedding and long weekend trip - yippee!

Actually you can get just that--I take mine from cd 16-cd 25 (though haven't needed to for last 2 months). You don't spot and you get a 28 day cycle! Seriously ask your GYN (not the RE) for a script after you have your baby.

I asked about miscarriage risk by stopping it at cd 25--GYN said if you're pregnant it does NOT cause a miscarriage, and can actually enhance the pregnancy!

Yay for progesterone doing its thang!
For me though? it makes me sicky =(
I'm usually better around the 2nd week, which is when I tend to have to stop taking it, ah well.
Have fun in San Francisco and have a happy (very blessed) new year!!!

I hear you about progesterone. It really is a wonder drug!

Have a wonderful time in San Francisco! That sounds like the perfect way to bring in the new year. :-D

Have a great new years cycle buddy! B and I went to San Fran two years ago for NYE and had a blast. We went to Napa during the day and some Cuban restaurant & concert in the evening. It was fun just being the two of us!
Glad the progesterone is doing its job. I wonder if suppositories are in my future as I've always had pretty low progesterone and spotting before my period starts (except last month when it was miraculously 35).
Anyway, happy new year!!

Have a wonderful mini-vacation!!! Sounds like a great way to start the new year! xoxo

Glad to hear the progesterone is working for you. It must be frustrating to spot so consistently...

WOO HOO for SF! I wish I had known you'd be out here, maybe we could have gotten a local blogger group together. Oh well, hope you have a great time. The weather is supposed to be pretty descent this weekend.

Wishing you a Happy, Healthy and Pregnant 2010!

Just thinking about you today as I thought about the next few hours being "A New Year". I hadn't checked your blog in a couple of weeks, and I am glad I did! I just want you to know that I'll be praying for you guys as you walk through the next couple of weeks...one day at a time... Glad that His Grace is sufficient for each week, day, hour, and minute

Man I wish I experienced all these wonderful progesterone side effects.

I am catching up after the holidays and want to wish you all kinds of luck with this Christmas IUI cycle. My fingers are crossed for you!

Happy New Year!
