Dropping Progesterone

Jo - April 25

Hi, I am currently 5 weeks 6 days pregnant. At 4 weeks my numbers were really low. HCG was 20 Prog was 6. I have had 4 blood tests so far and my HCG has been almost tripling every 2 days. Currently my HCG as of Friday was 1186. I am on 200mg of Prometrium orally because of the low Progesterone. This is my 4th pregnancy and the last 2 I also had to take a progesterone supplement. My question is. After 4 days on the Prometrium my number went up to 17 then 2 days later it went down to 12 and as of Friday it is 11. I don't understand it. I am going in for a scan on Thursday but I am concerned about the progesterone dropping? Can anyone help?

i don't know much about progesterone but I do know a whole bunch about hcg. if i were you i would call my dr. today re: progesterone dropping. it doesn't make sense to do so if you are taking it orally. as for your hcg, i think this is more important in determining your baby's health than progesterone, and if that is tripling every two days, you are in good shape. that's what mine did... then i was told i was having twins! good luck...
