Sorry I didn't get back to you sooner! I'm glad you got to see the heartbeat! Hopefully everything is still going well! At this stage, it's really hard to get too much progesterone, so doubling up can't hurt anything. I know it's hard to lower your stress level any time especially a time like this. I don't know what your resources are, but may I suggest a prenatal ma__sage? Make sure it's a therapist licensed specifically in prenatal. Might help with the stress levels. I had one every other week the whole way through my pregnancy. I know the cramps are disconcerting, but I really did have them almost the whole pregnancy... I guess everybody's tendons and muscles react differently. Hang in there! Hope you're doing well!

One other thing: As far as a cause of low progesterone, in my research I found it seems to be affecting the current child-bearing generation. I don't know how old you are, but I a__sume we are probably fairly close in age. Although they don't really know why it's happening, there is a drastic spike in women with low progesterone and related complications over the past decade or so. Perhaps all these hormones we feed our animals are catching up with us... The good news is that more pharmacists are carrying progesterone supplements because of this spike. Just a little tidbit of info.

Hello Everyone, searching on google about my problem I found this wonderful forum, I started reading everyones posts and cried a lot.  I am 30 yrs old, have a 19 yr old and a 7 yr old, no problems at all with those pregnancies.  On January I found out I was pregnant again but has not stopped bleeding.  First it started as dark brown spots, then it stopped and then it started all over again, from pink to more red blood but only when I go to the bathroom and wipe.  My Dr. right away sent me for an ultrasound, they found the sack but no baby.  Dr said that I was around 5 weeks and thats why there were no baby.  He ordered some Blood works and found that the progesterone was on 11 and the HTC was on the 900s.  He put me on progesterone v____al suppositories on Friday 2/17/12, one in the AM and one at night. He ordered more blood on Monday 2/20, my Progesterone was on 9 this time and the HTC went up around 1900s.  Yesterday he did more blood work on me and this morning called me to tell me that my HTC was only 2400 and the meaning of that was the baby was not growing the way that is supposed to grow.  He asked me to do another Ultrasound for Friday 3/2 but he told it was just to double check and depending on the ultrasound he will give me the meds to stop the pregnancy.... Im desperate and don't know what to think or do anymore, blood still coming out every time I use the bathroom but not cramps at all!

from what I've read is that hcg should multiply 60% every 48-72 hours I think your progesterone changes depending on the time of day I have to have mine drawn at the same time every other day so far mine have been going up, they should rise by 1 every 48-72 hours I just started my progesterone today so I am hoping it helps my dr said as long as they keep rising we are good I am 4 weeks today and my hgc yesterday was 894 and prog 12.6, good luck to you, please keep me posted

sasa6 is it possible that your dates are off? at 3 weeks and 5 days I was at 264 I would ask your dr what they think at 6 weeks the can see if there is a heart beat. Good Luck!

I will tell you one thing after multiple miscarriages myself I figured out that prayer is what kept me sain gl :)

Hello, Im still bleeding, now when i use the bathroom drops of blood ( like a period) come out... no cramps at all... yes I feel the sensation of a period but no pains. My pregnancy symptoms have decrease, the b___st hurt less, no nauseas or dizzines, is weird because I dont feel like a prego woman anymore :( but until Friday I cant find out for sure whats happening, My Ultrasound will tell us for sure, Im scare to find out that my baby is not there anymore, but I have not seeing any clogs on my blood, just liquid bright red drops... keep praying for me out there, I will keep you all post... Good Luck to all of you Girls and God Bless you and you babies too!

Hi girls, im back with really bad news, since Thursday I being in the process of miscarriage. I started bleeding heavy and with contractions. I spent my day at he hospital yesterday, it was terrible having an ultrasound and not seeing my baby. I have a blood test and the hcg went down to 400... :( I was sent to my house in such bad pain. Today Saturday my pains still killing me, but the worst part is the pain of knowing my baby is not in me anymore. Good Luck to all of you and God Bless!
