This happened to me. My HCG was very high (18,000) around 24 DPO (4/12/06) but my progesterone was only 8.4. I started on progesterone suppositories and am now 8 wks, 4 days. I had an u/s at 7 wks and everything with the baby was perfect. I had only been using the progesterone for 6 days at that point. I would ask to be put on them. I use them 2 x /day (once in the morning and once at bedtime). They are messy and you'll constantly have to wear a mini-pad. They also stain your underwear. However, I can deal with all that if it helps me keep my pregnancy (I had a m/c at 12 wks, 3 days in Jan). Ask your dr when you are at your appt about getting progesterone suppositories. Good luck!

thank you so much im actually now on the suppositories ... i go for an ultra sound today ,,, you made me feel better i also had a m/c at 12 weeks in nov so i just want everything to be good.

Wow! We have a lot in common. I'm so happy you are on the suppositories! Aren't they gross though? Please let me know how your u/s goes after you get back.

hey crystal ... so i just got home and the u/s went great we saw and heard the heart beat and even have pics! doctor said i would have to come back again in two weeks for another u/s just to make sure things are still good and next week is when she will check my levels again... yea the supositories are grosssss! but i really dont care i just want everything to be ok with the baby! hey where are you from and how old are you.

I'm SO happy for you!!! That is WONDERFUL news!!! I go back for another appt on 5/12 (next Fri). They said they won't do another u/s then as long as they can hear the heart beat on the doppler. If everything is okay at that appt I'll have another one 2-3 weeks from that date. I kind of wish I was going to have another u/s next week. It's nervewracking because that's how we found out I was going to miscarry the last time. We didn't know things were wrong until we saw the u/s. So far though, this time is going great and I'm so happy it is for you too! I agree with the suppositories: I can deal with them if they help me keep this pregnancy! I am 33 and I live in NM. How about you? How old are you and where do you live... and what's your name? :)

by the way my name is Deborah... and i live in cali we just moved here from ny... how far are you? i thought 8 weeks ? when are you able to here it on the doppler... i thought 13 weeks? i like u/s but on the same note they get my blood pressure up b/c thats also how i found out about the m/c. did they put you on baby asprin? im so glad to talk to you... it makes me feel a lil less nervous

 

fireflies561 - May 5

ohh i just wanted to say im glad everything is going good for you too!

 

CrystalH - May 5

Well hi Deborah, nice to meet you. Wow! you have made a big move recently! I used to live in N. Cali. I am 8 wks, 5 days today. I'm due 12/10. What about you? My doctor told me we should be able to hear the heartbeat on the doppler between 9-10 weeks (that's the earliest). When I have my next appt I'll be 9 wks, 5 days. If they can't pick it up I'm going to make them give me another u/s. Hopefully they'll be able to though. I know what you mean about u/s. They make me a nervous wreck too! No, I'm not on baby aspirin. Why did they put you on that? Do you have any other children?

 

fireflies561 - May 5

im 9 weeks 1 day. due Dec 4th. thwy put me on baby asprin for blood clotting in pregnancy,,,i have no other children ... what about you... do you work?

 

CrystalH - May 5

So we're due pretty close together. That's great! How is your morning sickness? I am so exhausted all the time and I have nausea but no throwing up (thankfully). I feel like I have a really bad flu all day long. I hope this will go away in the 2nd trimester. I actually have a 16-year-old! I'm basically starting all over again. He was a surprise and I've waited all these years to find someone I wanted to have a baby with. My husband and I married last July so I finally found the right person! I actually gave up my career to go back to school. I'm finishing up prerequisites and plan to become an MD. It won't happen until I'm around 40 but I guess better late then never! Do you work? How old are you?

 

fireflies561 - May 5

WOW, IM SO GLAD FOR YOU AND YOUR HUSBAND... MY MORNING SCKNESS IS LIKE BREATHING IN NAUSEA 24/7 BUT IM NOT THROWING UP...SO THATS ALWAYS A GOOD THING. I TOOK A LEAVE OF ABSENCE FROM WORK LAST WEEK JUST B/C I NEEDED IT SO IM GLAD THAT THEY UNDERSTOOD....SO YOUR GOIG TO BE AN MD. WHAT FIELD ARE YOU GOING TO GO INTO ? IT DOESNT MATTER WHEN YOU GO BACK TO SCHOOL JUST AS LONG AS YOU DO IT AND YOUR HAPPY. MY 2ND YEAR IN COLLEGE I HAD A 67 YEAR OLD IN MY PYCHOLOGY CLASS... SO IT NEVER TOO LATE. MY FIANCE ( WE BEEN EBNGAGEED FOR A YEAR NOW AND WERE PLANNIG FOR NEXT YEAR TO GET MARRIED) DROVE CROSS COUNTRY TO CALI JUST FOR A CHANGE OF PACE. BUT WE ARE LOOKING TO BUY A HOUSE IN NORTH CAROLINA...BY THE WAY IM 24

I plan to specialize in pediatric cardiovascular surgery. That's so cool that there was a 67-year-old in your cla__s! What field do you work in? It's great that you were able to take a leave. How exciting about the move! I hope things work out for you both and that you really like Cali. Good luck on the wedding planning too (since mine was less than a year ago I know how stressful it can be!). When do you think you'll get married?

 

fireflies561 - May 11

my fiance (greg) and i are probably planning to get married after the baby (not how it was planned but nothing ever is) we just want to focus on the baby... we know we are gonna get married so we're not really worried about it. . i counsel middle and highschool kids at an afterschool center. i love it! so the doc just called me and saidf she wanted to up my doseage to 200 mg she said it went up to 16 but she wants it higher.how are you feeling?

 

CrystalH - May 11

My prog went up from 8.4 to 12.4 after 6 days of being on 100mg, 1x/day. So, my doctor upped me to using them twice per day. I have my next appt tomorrow so I'm a bit anxious and excited about that. I'm terrified about not hearing the heartbeat. I think I'll feel a lot better when I'm past the 13 week mark since I miscarried in the 12th week last time. I'm feeling okay, my m/s comes and goes (thankfully!). Your job sounds great. I'm also getting a degree in psychology because I may go into counseling someday, or have it as a sub-specialty. I just love the field. I’m transferring to another school so things are nuts right now. My last week in the current semester is next Friday but since I’m starting at another school my new semester starts on Monday! It’s going top be crazy!!! I agree with your wedding plans, you know it's going to happen so there is no rush. Besides, the last think you want to do is be pregnant and planning a wedding! How are you doing? Feeling okay? When is your next appt?

 

fireflies561 - May 12

I wont be home this weekend but please let me know hoew things went at the doctors... im sure things are great ...my next blood work apt is wed. and a sonogram should be that week too! im been feeling ok my m/s comes and goes as well.... i feel the same way about the 13 weeks i cant wait!!!

 

Allicat70 - May 12

Hi...I am about 6 week pregnant and my progesterone level is 6. I started the suppositories tonight. What is the dosage that you are on? I keep reading all different doses. I am on 200mg twice a day...does that sound normal?? please let me know. thanks
