Should I Continue With Progesterone After Being Diagnosed Wi

Last week around 6 wks. an us was done that showed only a gestastional sac. Hcg levels rose to 18,000 so I was asked to come back in a wk. for another us. Today it showed only a gestational sac now measuring 7 wks. 6 days. I was diagnosed with a blighted ovum. I don't think I'm as far along as the Dr. thinks & I still feel pregnant. I've had no spotting or cramping. Dr. feels the miscarriage will happen once I stop taking the progesterone supp. I've had 3 previous mc, last one being in May. I'm fearful that I'm taking a risk by stopping the progesterone if I have been misdiagnosed yet I don't want to prolong the miscarriage if I am having one. Any advice would be appreciated.

At 7w6d you should have mananged to see a baby/fetus and the fact you haven't and with the sac growing it seems your Doctor has gotten the diagnosis right. Ask for another scan in a week to allow another chance and if the diagnosis is the same then I would say you are gonig to miscarry. The preogesterone won't keep an un-viable pregnancy, it will only help to sustain it for so long before the body will miscarry.
