Okie dokie then...

Although I've been having cramps for days now (yesterday's were particularly bad), I've been off of my progesterone for 3 days now (which my doctor said should make my period start), and I'm at CD45 (or something), I STILL haven't started my period.  I POAS again today, and yet again, a BFN.  I don't understand.  Any thoughts?  

Thank you all for all of your comments and support through all of this confusion!  You all are so wonderful!  

In other news, at a get-together this weekend I found out yet another one of my friends is pregnant.  They even brought ultrasound pictures, which I did NOT look at.  It feels like everybody I know is pregnant!  Ay, ay, ay!

I think the anxiety meds I'm taking are keeping me from sleeping.  I usually fall asleep fine, but wake up at some point(s) and I can't go back to sleep.  I'm honestly not sure if I slept at all last night.  Many of my symptoms (stabbing pains in my chest, racing heart, etc.) are gone, but I'm going crazy from lack of sleep.  

Ugh.  I feel like I haven't properly blogged in a million years, and I have a lot that I want to post about, but I'm so, so tired and I can't think straight.  I'm sorry!  Thank you all for sticking with me, even though I'm not being a very good blogger! :) 


  1. My thought is..instead of HPT, can you go into your MD's and get a beta hcg (blood test)..at least it will give you some answers and you and your MD can move on from there??

  2. Praying for you. Hopefully you get some good answers soon.

  3. St. Rita's Roses has a good point. At least then if you are still getting BFNs and no AF, you have the blood test to give you more information as to what is going on.

    Did your MD say why Progesterone would stop AF? I've been on it only once before but it was after I had conceived and intended to keep me pregnant and prevent a miscarriage. So I'm a little confused why it would stop your cycle.

  4. I don't have answers, but I like the idea of getting the blood test. Praying!

  5. Progesterone builds up (thickens) your endometrium.so if preggos, then helps carry to term, if not, then is delays it big time by still thickening your endometrium...it will, however, stop and you will bleed..typically bleed heavier if really delayed.
