Progesterone Check - 3dp4dt

Today is 3 days past my four day embryo transfer, and I had to go in to the clinic for my progesterone test. It is done by a simple blood draw. The test is done just to see that you are producing an ample amount of progesterone to support a pregnancy IF you are indeed pregnant. They want the levels to be at least 10, but really look for them to be 20 or higher. The nurse told me that my levels were "awesome". She said that they came back at 100 (or higher, since their test maxes out at 100). She also mentioned that the gel that I am using to supplement progesterone production is only showing up in trace amounts, which means my body is producing all of that progesterone on its own. Good news! Then again, we usually get "good news" and are still yet to have a baby...but I suppose we will just keep on accepting it. Maybe this will be our lucky time??? That is all we can hope!
