Those numbers look great!! I am so excited for you to see your little sweetie on Monday!!

I am not sure about what the number should be since you are on suppositories, but I do know, mine was only 21 when they checked so yours is higher than mine was. Sorry I am not much help but at least you can rest knowing it is a good number

Your numbers look great! Even the progesterone, which would probably be a lot lower without the suppositories, so it shows they're doing their job. Some docs are OK with progesterone levels of 15, some prefer 20, and you're above both of those, so take a deep breath, relax, and look forward to Monday!

Your placenta takes over production of progesterone somewhere between 9-12 weeks (usually by week 10). You can always ask your doc to keep an eye on your numbers the first few weeks you're off the suppositories, for that extra warm-fuzzy that everything's working right. It's VERY rare to need supplements after the first trimester. I've only known one person who continued beyond that and she started out at a 7.

your #'s are great. and as for the progesterone mine is 13 point something.
i really hope you see the h/b. i pretty much knew my dd was going to be pushed back a few days. my black dot is measuring 5w. (i have to add its the cutest little black dot i have ever seen). i'm on pregnancy #7, and for 4 of them they were all pushed back a couple of days. the other 2 were chemical. i go back in 10 days, and then they said there should be a h/b.

Danielle, I don't know if you remember me from the ttc after loss board, or not. I just want to say that I've been reading your posts and I have been thinking about you and your bean. I will continue to keep you both in my prayers! You deserve this sweetie! Can't wait to hear about your appt Monday. I pray you get to see the heart beating!

Danielle-
So far SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO good! I am more and more excited for you! You are in my thoughts all the time and I have everything crossed that this bean is a sticky bean! (And just while we are hoping for things, I am hoping it is a PINK bean too!)

thank you so so much everyone. I am trying so hard to stay positive and convince myself this one is a keeper! i cramped SO bad lastnight i thought it was over but it went away and no spotting. dh says "what do you expect, something is growing IN you" I guess i should listen to him, huh? Well he can carry the next one

thank you all again! to know all of you are rooting for me, makes me feel real good.

Those numbers look awesome Danielle!!!! I wish I could say something about your progesterone but I don't know very much about it. I do remember someone in our due date club (Babies - you may know her?) I think her progesterone was down to like 12 or 13 and she delivered a healthy baby girl. So a 25 still seems good to me!

As for cramping - mine at times felt like bad menstrual cramps too AND I spotted a little during them. It scared the crap out of me but LIliana was just fine! Hang in there - I think you two will be just fine.

I'm with everyone else... those numbers are good!!! The suppositories are like little "comfort blankets" because you know they'll help keep your prog. #'s up! Although they make me SOOO constipated, but it's worth it!

I still get cramps from time to time. I have a friend who cramped so bad at about 6 weeks so was bent over in pain and thought for sure she was m/c. Nope.... she's 14 weeks now and everything is fine! Cramps are just your uterus stretching.

I'll be thinking about you on Monday! Best of luck!!!!

Jen
