Here I go

So here I go. For the purpose of keeping my private life private I am just going to refer to myself as Mrs.Lost. It is actually a great name for me because that is where I am at the moment, and that is where my damn stork is too. My husband Mr. Lost and I have been trying to conceive for a while now and have recently found out that my progesterone level is extremely low. Just to put things in perspective the "sparkling" number as my fertility specialist calls it is a 15, and good levels are between 10-15. My number is a whooping .02, yes you read that correctly point zero two which translates to "your ass isn't getting pregnant" and "you have wasted money on birth control for too many years". Since my fertility specialist likes to say sparkling we will call her Dr. Sparkle from now on my blog. Dr. Sparkle thinks that if I start taking Clomid I can actually ovulate and stop pretending that I am every month. BUT (there is always a but) I am AMA "advanced maternal age" because I am over 35 and the risks of taking the medication can be higher. AND (always an and too) they want to test Mr. Lost's swimmers to see how they are doing first. If Mr. Lost only has three swimmers and they are backstroking in a circle it doesn't really matter if I am ovulating or not. I will be getting one more progesterone blood test done the beginning of next week to see if has gone up any but (damn but) even if it went up leaps and bounds to a big ol' 2 it still sucks. Mr. Lost will be going in next week to get his Phelps and Lochte's analyzed as well and we are hoping for Olympic gold. If he ends up not having very many and/or the ones he has aren't good we will start getting ready for our first attempt at IUI. If a few of you find yourselves at my blog I want to thank you ahead of time for listening to my rambling, because trust me there will be rambling.
