This morning, I drove to Dr. Lee's for the first round of bloodtests. Our nurse just called with the results: progesterone 18.5. I know I should be grateful for anything over 15, but I was really hoping for something in the 20s to give me hope... I know that this only means I ovulated and that 7dpo progesterone tests are not indicative of pregnancy. I was 18.4 on 5dpo with Alexander and 34 on 7dpo with Nicholas & Sophia. I shouldn't compare, but in my mind... Higher is better and I was focusing on 20+. The 18.5 has my nerves on end. My next appointment in next week, 14dpo for the hCG test and another progesterone test. I'm trying to be thankful for the little things: at least it isn't 15. It was 18.5. The nurse told me that my results were "good". Okay. Breathe. It's okay.

Tonight is our rescheduled CSS meeting. The woman is coming at 4pm. Already, I'm a nervous wreck for that, too. I'm sure it will be fine, but still... I'm all nerves.

And on top of that, a horrible day at work yesterday. More on that later...

Take one day at a time. I don't think the progesterone could really tell you anything this early. 7 more days.
