Progesterone S 5 At 7 2 Weeks

KimberlyP - October 14

I'm 7 weeks 5 days pregnant. At 5 weeks 3 days my hcg was 2018 and progesterone was 8.2 (my doctor like to see it at 10). Two days later hcg was at 3059 with no change in progesterone levels. I was put on 50mg progesterone suppositories. once nightly. My last blood test results showed hcg was in the 11,000's but my progesterone dropped to 5. My doctor was worried I was having an ectopic pregnancy and had me come in for an ultrasound. The fecus was right where it should be, the size it should be with a heart beat of 130 BPM. So, He increased my progesterone to 50mg sup 2 x daily. I can't say I'm very relieved to of seen the fetus or heard the heart beat. This is my 7th pregnancy and only 1 child resulted from them 21 years ago, the rest ended between the 10th - 12th week. We've been here a couple of times before (seeing a fetus and listening to a healthy heart beat.) but this is the first time I've been put on progesterone. From what I've been reading on this board and many others the dose I'm taking seems very low in comparison to most other women taking it? I go in for another ultrasound and more blood work on Monday. I haven't had any spotting or cramping I'm glad to say but, never did with the others until it was all over either. I'm very worried, frustrated and feel like this time around I'm going to flat out loose my mind. I'm tired of going through this with only a stack of ultrasound pictures to show for it. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Has anyone else gone through this? Is it still possible to have a viable pregnancy? My doctor says 50/50 but would like to hear from others that have gone through this and what the out come was for them? Thank you, Kimberly P.
