If you had not had the USs how far along do YOU think you are?
Most women see a heartbeat between 6 & 7 weeks but US dating can be off. Your dr is an ##### for saying that to you. As for the progesterone he is wrong. A drop in progesterone does not indicate you will miscarry. If it is a continuous drop you *may* miscarry but it is not guaranteed. If your progesterone was to start dropping they can and should prescribe a progesterone supplement. A vaginal supposetory called Crinone is the best one. It does not show up in blood work, but it goes straight to the uterus where it is needed.
In my honest opinion, when you see your dr again demand another US. Find out whether he sees an egg sack and a fetal pole if there is no heartbeat. Then fire him and get a new dr.
