I had my blood drawn Friday to check estrogen and progesterone levels and for the life of me couldn't get the results! It took paging the on call folks at my local clinic twice - once yesterday, once today - to finally get the numbers.
estrogen looks great at 1,043
Despite this, I was advised to cut all the progesterone supplementation by a different nurse than I usually deal with in Denver. She said my body "should" be able to produce it by itself by 12 weeks.
I'm not so inclined to do this, since the level is supposed to stay above 20, and it's barely 20 with the every other day PIO supplementation.
I'm hoping I can get in touch with my regular nurse tomorrow and get her thoughts.
God forbid I do something to jeopardize this pregnancy. Maybe my body "should" be able to provide the progesterone but I don't know that that means that it will.
Or maybe I'm being overly cautious... what do you think?
