Pregnancy status update

Well, I just got a call from my midwife.

The good news:

My progesterone went from the dangerously low level of 5.6 to a very, very good level of 24.6 after only 2 100mg doses of oral progesterone. My midwife said that she has never seen progesterone respond that quickly.


The bad news:

My HCG is not doubling. It is supposed to double every 48 hours. I had mine tested and my first was 21000 and 72 hours later, it was only 33000. This is not a good sign. :(


So, I'm not out of the woods still, but there is nothing more we can do. I just have to wait and keep up hope.

I never knew my numbers but I've heard they really can vary per woman and pregnancy.

I give you tons of baby dust, our 5th is due in August, and positive thoughts for you and baby.

The way my doctor explained it was that low P can usually mean a bad egg. You can supplement the progesterone but it doesn't change the quality of the egg. A bad quality egg can along with low p cause levels not to rise properly. I hope that isn't the case here. I don't know if you read my post but I am no longer able to get pregnant naturally anymore. Thought you should know. Hugs
