I got 99 problems and progesterone is one

Oh progesterone! It's a tricky little thing. It causes your breasts to become ridiculously sore and your emotions to register off the charts. Every month that I use progesterone, I become convinced that "it" worked because of all the pregnancy-like symptoms that the drug causes. Yet, a few days later I get the dreaded visit from aunt flow. Not this month. I refuse to be a victim of the progesterone prank. Only 3 more days of waiting and then the verdict will be in. Until then, I am cautiously optimistic but not convinced.

While we are on the subject of progesterone, I think my poor husband is probably about ready to say "sayonara crazy lady" because I have been crying at the drop of a hat. Yesterday A told me that "he'd rather take the drugs himself than live with a woman taking fertility drugs." Believe me, I wish he could take them for me too. If the doctor orders us back on clomid next month, A might start looking for a room to rent!  For Reals.

And what's up with the lovely delivery system? Suppositories. Goopy, creamy, cold insertable medication that prevents you from being able to roll over in bed at night without losing your drugs. Come on pharma peeps, you can do better than this!

Everything is crossed for you Jess! Progesterone is such a little bugger. May all of its annoyance = a BFP for you.

Thinking positive thoughts for you!

I never took the suppositories, but I did get the progesterone shots... OUCH!

Hang in there.

Oh my goodness... I am so hoping this works out for you!!! I had to laugh at your post! I was a mess on fertility drugs and progesterone is just cruel. Sending hope and prayers your way!!!

Thinking of you these next 48 hours!!!

Yeah...those suppositories are nasty. I would rather shoot myself up with progesterone with a 21 gauge needle everyday (which I have done).

sorry Jessah!! I have been having so many problems commenting I wanted to check to see if I could get one to post, lol.

Crossing my fingers for you this month!

Oh and LOVE the books you all read- I am a high school librarian and an avid reader as well. I can not keep hunger games on the shelves and I just loved Before I go to sleep- although it freaked me out.

Have a great day!

Ugh, time for a movie night date to distract you from the hormonal craze? I think I'll be starting progesterone next month... I'm sure my predisposed crazy will only get worse. Thanks for the heads up :)
