Thank you to everyone who is helping me on the board. I am so glad I found this.
If I conceived this month, it was on May 24, day 12 I believe. I got my period in Hawaii and my days were all confused as there is a 6 or 8 hour difference. So, I think it was day 12.
Anyway, I wanted to ask what day would I get a blood test because I am concerned about taking progesterone. I took them in my second pregnancy because I read a book called how to prevent miscarriage...I think that I am having pregnancy symptoms. My breasts are very full and sensitive and I have almost constant cramping from my breasts down. I am not under any more stress then usual. I actually called my internist doctor to ask if she would call in a blood test. I don't know how much they cost or if I am completely embarrassing myself. I just think that there might be something here and I don't know what to do. We have insurance, but we have to pay the deductible. My husband has lost his job for the last 7 months I have posted and I really don't have the money to get the test. I can only imagine it must be at least $100.
Please send me your advice. I don't want to be 40 and pregnant only to experience a loss because I did not get on the progesterone soon enough. Please educate me.
Thank you from my heart,
