Progesterone Amp Hcg

I am so grateful to have stumbled on this site! My husband & I had a mc last May at 5wks. Progesterone was never checked...the nurse said the dr. didn't check levels until someone miscarries. I found out a few weeks ago that I am pg again...about 5 wks now. But three days ago I began spotting with no cramps. I had not been able to make my first appt. yet, but called the doc. Nurse said to go to bed (spotting started in evening) and call office in a.m. Next morning, I went to do blood work. with instructions to stay in bed and start taking Prometrium 400mg at bedtime. Next morning the nurse called back saying hcg levels indicated a 2 to 3 wk pregnancy and suggested I miscalculated my last period. (I am positive I did not) However, she would not agree to a u/s until I did more blood work that morning. She wanted to be able to compare the two separate days to see if hcg levels are climbing. In my state of worry, I forgot to get my progesterone levels from her. It is now my third day of spotting...nothing heavy..one pad a day and slight cramping now. The doctor's office never called me back this morning with results...it is Friday and the office closes at 1:00 p.m. I am so frustrated and scared that I could be miscarrying again. However, I have been given some hope after reading about all of your experiences. I do believe I will be shopping for another doctor...if I don't go crazy this weekend! Also, for those of you who did spotting and/or bleeding while beginning the progesterone, how long did it take to stop bleeding? And, were you put on complete bedrest..and for how long? Anyone over 40 having these problems?
