I am so scared. My midwife called to discuss my lab results and said that my progesterone has gone down to 16. I will be getting a suplimentation tomorrow, but I'm worried it will be too little too late.

I have also been rather crampy yesterday and today, so I think maybe it has even already started, but I hope and pray it has not. I think I will die if I loose this baby. I am so in love already.

Are you having any bleeding? Cramps are normal, so as long as you are not bleeding it just means that things are stretching. I'll keep you in my t&p

When my progesterone dropped from 33 to 19 I was SO terrified...I know how you are feeling. Everything was okay though and the prometrium helped.

Is there anything your doctor can tell you to get now, just so you're not worried for the next 24 hours? I'm praying for you Cheryl!!!

Cheryl, you are in my thoughts and prayers. If it's a prescription being called in, can you call and ask them to do it today? I'm sorry you're having to worry like this...Hopefully the supplements do their job and everything works out great! thinking of you

I worked last night, so didn't get home till 5am! sorry I'm only just now updating.

I heard the heartbeat yesterday! 172! It was so amazing, and it made me feel so much better. I'm still moderately crampy, but less so. The script was called in, and I'll pick it up today.

I cannot believe it! I feel absolutely so blessed. I have heard of welcome womb, but don't have any. I may see if my midwife has some. She reccomended cramp bark if I get any more crampy. But after hearing the baby I'm so much less worried.

Congrats on your hb! My progesterone dropped to 13 with Juliana and all was fine, so I know it can be okay.
