wow - well that is very cool that you have a BFP on your hands already! If you have a history of low progesterone, I would be inclined to take my old supply and then get to the doctor for a blood draw to check your Beta levels as well as prog. I wouldn't risk doing nothing although your temp fluctuations are maybe just by chance. As for vitex, I personally stopped taking that after I got my BFP as I was not comfortable taking it while pregnant and have read conflicting information on that one. Everything else should be fine from what I understand, but again, you should only take what you feel comfortable taking based on your own research .
Good luck and let us know when that line gets darker!
Awesome news during a difficult time for you family :)

The good news is my temp was high again today but the test lines are still very faint. I even did a "test" test with water to see if the line was just in my head! I will just have to find some will power and see if I can wait at least a couple days before testing again. It is still so early. In the meantime I did start the progesterone since it can't hurt and I stopped the vitex. Thanks for the advice and encouragement!

Glad your temps are up - and I think it is good that you are on the prog for now......hoping for you that your temps stay up and the line gets darker! :)
