thanks guys. I have to admit, I was a little surprised at first about how aggressive he is with moving everything forward, and then I remembered I said, "my OB says keep trying, and that's not good enough for me." At one point, he looked me in the eye and said, "Kelly, I can see that you and I are on the same page - and that's to get you pregnant with a healthy pregnancy as soon as possible!" He's right, so full steam ahead!!!

That sounds like a great visit. I am glad you have a RE that is addressing your issues and I have no doubt you will have your BFP by the end of summer.

Julia - as much as I love my OB, that was something that always bugged me. I said a couple of times to her that I was concerned that my LP was too short and that was causing problems and she always said it was still in the normal range and that she doesn't think progesterone really helps anyway. So it's nice to have the RE be a little more proactive!

Well you know my RE is world renound and refused to put me on it for years. He is not sold on the fact that LP problems exist. Sometimes I agree with him and sometimes I don't. He basically says, if sperm meets egg and all is healthy, you will have NO LP. If you have a short LP it's because you're body knows conception has not occurred and is moving on.

Chelle - I don't disagree with that. I would guess that I've always had a short LP, and I managed to have DD no problem. So I think yeah, if it's a healthy PG everything will work.
On the other hand, if it doesn't HURT to take the progesterone and it's possible that it could HELP, why not prescribe/take it?

Yep I really do go back and forth about it. I mean, his logic makes sense but then we hear about women who lose pg's back to back to back, only to find out they have a prog problem. They take it and have a successful pg! I mean, how do you argue with THAT? LOL I totally agree with you. It's pretty cheap, it certainly won't HURT anything so why not do it? That was the logic I always used when I pleaded with my RE. It may not help but it def will not hurt so why not!?
