Just got off the phone with Dr HH, my obgyn whom I love dearly. I called his office, he called me back within 5 minutes. I fired off a list of questions & internet facts, he systematically addressed each one. I asked him to write me a prescription for progesterone, he agreed without argument (which is good because I was prepared to fight to the death). Love him.

I told Bobby that this next pregnancy (attempt) is going to be a scientific experiment… a thought which thoroughly offended his happy, little, glass-half-full, all-we-need-is-love self. I’m liking it though — it’s nice and organized and a bit detached.
