High HCG Low Progesterone Blighted Ovum

At 5 weeks 1 day (my calculations, keep in mind the doctor dates me 4-5 days ahead of my dating because they don't consider late ovulation) I went to ER for pink/brown bleeding with cramping. The bleeding was light and only appeared when I wiped. Since I didn't have an OB at the time to consult, I went to ER. My HCg was 6000 and the vag u/s saw an empty sac. They diagnoised me with a threatened miscarriage and sent me home. Two days later, I followed up with a new OB doctor. At this time, my HCG rose to 12000 (doubled in 48 hours) but my progesterone was only 7. I was not started on supplements because by doc said it wouldn't do any good unless they saw a heartbeat. I was disappointed and the doc said "it doesn't look good". Plenty of pg symtpoms to include severe nausea, dizziness, etc. Three days after that (5 days from original u/s) I was 5 wks, 6 days according to me and 6 wks, 3 days accoring to the doc. My HCG was 12,900 (doubled again), the U/S saw "some growth" in the yolk, but my doc insisted there was little hope for me and things weren't looking good despite my HCG numbers and the ultrasound results. His diagnosis was blighted ovum. I had one more episode of brown bleeding (more than before) the day of my last internal u/s but nothing else since. My br___t tenderness comes and goes and my nausea is still here. I have another u/s this coming thursday (today is Sunday). I get the results of my next progesterone check tomorrow. I'm on bedrest until then. Does anyone have a similar story? I just need more information. I will keep this discussion updated as I get information.

Correction istead of 12900, it was actually 25900... sorry for the typo!
