The results of my blood work today revealed that my progesterone level is not increasing as quickly as preferred. So I find myself at home on a Friday afternoon at 3:30pm lying horizontal on the couch so that the pro.metrium will absorb. I don't know why I didn't prepare and bring the pro.metrium with me to work today. I guess I was expecting everything to go smoothly. Have I learned nothing from the past 2 years?
The nurse said the low P4 level is nothing to worry about and easily fixable by starting the supps a day early. So of course, now I'm worried. At least I got to leave work a little early.
Tomorrow I add the estrogen patches. We're going to try rubbing My.lanta or something similar on my skin prior to applying the patches this time to see if it helps with the irritation. My only other option was taking Es.trace vaginally and I just didn't want to deal with that. It's bad enough that the pro.metrium has to be taken that way and causes you to ooze all day long. I didn't want to have freaky blue leaking out of me at the same time. And really there's only so much room up in there right? Sorry for the TMI.
Today's tune is "Little Black Sandals" by Sia. Someday I'll have little black sandals that will walk me away from this IF crap.
Today's photo's are some from our trip to Italy in May of 2006. The first one is a picture of the River Arno in Florence. The second one is obvious. The third is another picture of the River Arno, but taken in Pisa.
