So, I had my progesterone checked this morning, and it's too low. It should be over 15 on a medicated cycle, and I'm at 10.5. There are some technical reasons why this may be okay (PIO injections vs. Endometrin), but what it boils down to is -- it's a reality check.
The nurse is telling me not to worry, some girls I know who have gone through this are telling me not to worry, but I reserve the right to worry all I want to. There are plenty of studies online that show that an early low progesterone level can indicate no pregnancy at all, or one that isn't going to be viable.
Honestly, this has been going entirely too smoothly, and it's not bad to get a little slap to bring me back to the here and now. After all, we had a 40% chance going in to this. It would be a freakin' miracle for this to work on the first try.
Don't get me wrong, I'm not giving up hope, I'm just reminded that sometimes all the hope and positivity in the world can't change an outcome.
I also learned yesterday that our two other blastocysts did not make it to freeze, so if we do this again, it will have to be another fresh cycle.
For such a short 2ww, it's now feeling like an eternity.
