So this past year Adam and I have been going to a naturalpathic doctor. He has this nutritionist woman in his office and she can test you for allergies in a very strange way. I'm still not sure how I feel about all of it - it seems pretty hoaky. I went in for the testing and she said that I was allergic to 5 things - progesterone being one of them. She sent me home with this little dropper and fluid that contained the 5 things I was allergic to. It's been a progressive process - each month I have increased my dosage on the amount I take. I do it for a total of 5 months and the theory is that at the end of it I should be cured of these allergies. I have 1 week to go and I will be done. Now is this doing anything in my body? i'm really not sure. But I think I will go back in after and have her re-test to see if I'm still allergic to anything.
Now this is the part I'm most excited about. After she did the testing I asked her about how I get so sick when I'm pregnant and I wondered if there was a correlation between that and my allergy to progesterone. She said that there is a very good chance that once I'm cured of the allergy that I will be able to tell a difference the next time I'm pregnant. Isn't that just about the best thing you've ever heard? I'm not sure what will happen, but I figure that even if it's just a smidge better I will be so happy. And if there is any difference it will be a true miracle.
And hooray that it's almost over. Some days I will miss taking my vitamins, but I NEVER miss taking my allergy therapy - the possible advantages of taking it are too great to pass up.
Like I said, I'm not sure what will happen, but I'm excited about the possibilities.
