Results are in

I called the office today and the only number they had was the hCG which was 183,460. This is a very high number for 9 weeks. They didn't have the progesterone back yet. While picking the kids up from school, they called my cell and the progesterone level is a 9.3. Not good. According to the doctor, my hCG would not be that strong if the pregnancy wasn't viable. He was not concerned as I am on prometrium which should raise that number. I do not go back until 12/09. Until then, faith and prayer. I hope I started the prometrium in time. They can bring the progesterone level up but not the hCG. With my last miscarriage, my hCG was no where near doubling but the progesterone was good(like 52). It's going to be a long 2 weeks.

Prayers for you, my dear. I have no idea about those numbers and the science of it all, but I am praying for you.

is prometrium a vag. supp. or orally?

Wow on the low progesterone?!?!? I don't know how it is possible. Only in God's hands it is. This is remarkable and I hope the progesterone goes UP.

Wow--it's great that they started you on the prometrium! I still can't believe the level you mentioned in your last post--less than 0.5. Amazing! There really is no "scientific" explanation, is there? :)

Did you need progesterone supplementation in your previous pregnancies? Do you know why the doctor chose prometrium rather than injections? (I'm doing both now--injections and oral prometrium.) I'm actually in a similar situation, because in my last pregnancy (miscarriage), my progesterone levels were higher but my hCG levels were lower than they are this time around. I'm praying that's a good sign for both of us!

I did the progesterone supp with the last(I mc, a blighted ovum) but my problem last time is my hcg wasn't doubling. This time, it's a low progesterone #. I hope and pray for positive signs when I go in next Tuesday. I am going on faith right now and the hope the baby is doing well. I am sick and having round ligament pain and hope that continues(til I hear that heartbeat).
