Well, despite their pep talk that it could still double and/or be a twin loss scenario, I'm not optimistic after the results from yesterday's bloodwork:

@6w4d

HcG = 3542 (i roughly estimate based on prior detect5 test results I should be around 12-18K if doubling properly)

Prog = 2.89 (should be over 10 for a viable pregnancy)

I do the 2nd round of bloodwork tomorrow afternoon...they now want to cancel my Thur appt and schedule an u/s next Tue along with an appt with my OB (Thur's was just an initial appt with the Phys Asst).

Anyway, if anyone can put a positive spin on these results I'd love something to cling to. That I get this bad news on my bday is just an extra layer of suckiness

Your progesterone is extremely low... They should put you on a supplement...


Im sending prayers to you. I hope your next number doubles.

I'm so sorry, Lara. I don't have any experience with hcg to share, but I wanted to let you know I was thinking about you and that I still have hope that everything will be OK. I am doubly sorry that you are going through this worry and stress on your birthday. I had a similar kind of birthday this year (couldn't find Chloe's hb on the doppler so was convinced that she'd passed) and I know how much it sucks. Big hugs!

The hcg number looks okay to me, but overall, the actual number isn't that important - only the doubling rate is important. So you won't know if that is good until you get the second draw. The progesterone is low, and they should put you on a supplement to be safe, but i've had low progesterone with 3 out of 4 pregnancies (and the one with good progesterone is the one i miscarried). From my experience the progesterone numbers aren't nearly as important as a good, rising hcg level.

The progesterone is very worrisome.....did they call in a script to be safe? As for the hcg, anything could happen, hoping that it doubles for you nicely. Praying for a great update from you.

I forgot to update that I ended up calling the Dr office back and asked about progesterone supplement & moving u/s up. They will not put me on prog supp - my OB isn't supportive of supplementation (i knew this) but they are moving me up to have an u/s on Thur. I go in for the 2nd round of bloodwork tomorrow...they will not test my progesterone again as (according to her Phys Asst) they would not expect to see it change significantly.

I'll update again (on Thur) once I've had the u/s and gotten the results of the bloodwork back...I'm preparing myself as I don't honestly expect a miracle, although I'd really appreciate one right about now...

Hey Hon......I'm sorry, I don't know much about number, I got them checked once and I paid no attention to the numbers.
I am hoping that everything will be ok tomorrow at your u/s. Stay positive. I'll be praying for you. Tons of HUGS
Oh and by the way, with Alex I was 6w5d when I had the u/s and wee saw the h/b, sorry I remember this from another post from you, i just remembered to tell you.
