Well, I've had the first spotting of the cycle, so I'm probably out. I'm not due till Thursday, so we'll see, but I'm trying not to get my hopes up too much.
DH deposits his sample tomorrow. Most of my results are in and almost everything looks normal. My vitamin D looks low, so they want me to start taking more supplements above what's in the prenatal vitamin. My prolactin came back high, so I'll be repeating that test on Wednesday, but fasting this time. My last ob/gyn also did prolactin in November and it was normal then, so I'm not too worked up about it.
I used the lack of vitamin D as an excuse to sit outside in my garden for a while today. Might as well be good for something.
Anonymath, you probably know this, but prolactin seems to be really sensitive to all sorts of weird things. I had high prolactin a few times, but was testing in the late afternoon each time; once I tested in the morning (fasting), it was fine, and my doctor said that was not at all unusual.
I had a few more blood tests yesterday, including vitamin D, so I'll be interested to see how those turn out.
The insurance thing is difficult, for sure. Mine pays for 50% of anything related to infertility up to a maximum of something like $4000 - but they won't pay anything for IVF or anything else they deem to be not medically sound (I don't remember the exact phrasing they use). We've agreed from the beginning that we don't want to go as far as IVF, and the cost is definitely a big part of that. By the time you factor in everything that goes with it, we're talking about, you know, a down payment on a house or something.
