Hi everyone... need your advice. I am 5 weeks pregnant after a m/c in November and a chemical pregnancy in February. Needless to say, we are thrilled. My betas have been great but my progesterone went from 56 to 17 in one week. My RE says he's not concerned at this time but I am! Everything on the internet says that a dropping progesterone can signal a m/c. I just don't know if I could handle a third loss in less than a year. Anyone have some insight on progesterone? Thanks so much!

The only thing I can tell you is what I've been told based on my own experience. I have lost 3 pregnancies. All of them had low progesterone levels. This pregnancy, I was put on Prometrium (a progesterone supplement). My doctor's nurse told me that they don't expect huge jumps in progesterone, but they want it to stay over 15. Do you think you could ask your doctor about progesterone supplements. I truly believe that the reason, I am still carrying this baby is because of my medicine.

Thanks so much for replying mcbee! I really appreciate it. I did get a prescription for progesterone v____al suppositories today. I feel better about everything but as I sure you can relate, I'm scared to death. I'm also on estrogen patches starting when I got my + preg test. Good luck in your pregnancy - I hope everything works out for you and your family :)
