There's always something to worry about, isn't there?
Today I'm concerned that I might have a luteal phase defect after all.
The funny thing about this is that last summer when I was stressing out about not being able to conceive I was convinced a luteal phase defect was the primary problem. Little did I realize that it was a Fallopian tube issue and no amount of Vitamin B6 was going to fix that problem- only surgery would help create a less toxic and blocked environment.

Now, however, with the slightly low progesterone test and it looking like this next cycle is going to start slightly earlier than expected, there's a good chance that some B6 and/or some progesterone supplementation might be just what I need. I hope I'll be able to ask the nurse this week when she calls with my TSH level- as long as they call when I'm near my phone!

I travel a lot in the fall. I'll be out of town for most of the second half of September and two long weekends in October. Any thoughts on traveling during TTC and/or early pregnancy? If the best thing to do is wait that'll mean late October/early November before we try and that seems like a really, really long time from now!


  1. With Nicholas and Sophia, I had a library conference coming up during my Gonal-F injections. I ended up carrying a cooler so that I could have my injections with me. I was home, of course, in time for our IUI, but I remember being so self conscious with my little drug carrying case. My doctor has never had issues with me traveling in the first trimester. Have you talked to your doctor?

    I really hope that you are able to work everything into your schedule. I know how far away late October-early November seems! That is our countdown, too, albeit for a different reason!

  2. I have no advice for you since I'm not NEARLY as cool as you and never travel ;o) I'm with Michele though, totally talk to your doctor.

    Good luck with being by a phone when the call comes in!
