Joining the world of ovulators

Dr. Haas just called to tell me that my progesterone level was 7.5 which means I definitely ovulated on my own!!! We want it above 10 but he said it may have decreased since I ovulated about 6 days ago. And I actually ovulated from both ovaries this month which is strange since I'm not on fertility drugs right now. I guess my ovaries just got really excited and forgot to take turns.

Crazy how you literally burn multiple holes through an ovary and then they decide to work. No one is certain about the whole process behind it, but I'm sure glad I decided to do it. Maybe we're actually getting somewhere. And the even better news is that I won't have to take provera (aka: "my crazy pills") this month!!!

Well, I've got patients to see who think that they have problems worth hearing, so I better go! Keep the prayers coming, I think it must be working!!!


  1. Great news! Robbie and I are thinking often of you guys and this journey you're on. Love and prayers headed your way.

  2. That's so awesome!Keep those eggs comin' girls!
