Hi...I'm new to this board and I wanted to introduce myself. I'm Candace (35 yrs old) and I'm newly pregnant again. My DH is Seth (40 yrs old) I have two lively DDs, ages 15 and 8 and two wonderful step kids. Sadly, I've also had 4 losses...7wks, ectopic, 12.5 wks and a chemical pregnancy.
I'm trying to be optomistic about this pregnancy but I can't say that I'm doing a very good job of it. I fluctuate between just feeling numb to feelings of impending doom.
I had my first blood work done last week at 17 DPO. My HCG was 326 and my progesterone was 16.6.
My ob said those #'s were okay but I'm not convinced of that. 16 seems too low to me.
What do you all think? Is a 16 Prog. level too low?
I'll receive my second results on mon. or tues. and I'm praying that my HCG doubles.
Nice to meet you all,
(and a big hello those of you that I already know!)
Try not to worry too much. My progesterone was 11 at about 6 weeks. It's been pretty much borderline ever since and I'm due in december. If your doctor was worried, you'll get the suppositories (which upped my numbers but haven't made me sky rocket).
I just wanted to wish you a healthy pregnancy. Don't worry too much about the progesterone although you could ask your doctor about progesterone supplements. I think a level of 10 is enought to sustain a pregnancy although doctors like to see it higher. Take care.
