Thank you Gillian! I am silently celebrating every little thing.. every time I go p and nothing is there, every time i bump into my won sore bb's, etc. It's all I have right now.

I am a little worried about the progesterone. Mine was 13.something.. and I keep reading they want it at around 20 or so. So if I isn't 20+ tomorrow would you recommend asking for a supplement?

Oh ya, I was a TP watcher too, big time!

Still no results today? Tell them I'm waiting.

I wouldn't panic on the prog level, but I think it's worthing talking to your doc about re: supplements. Given your history, I don't think it's unreasonable at all to want to err on the side of caution.

HCG 247
Progresterone 13

I'm not sure how I feel about these.. they aren't bad. But I am concerned with the progesterone again.. and the nurses lack of help.

But here they are!

The nurse cancelled my U/S for Wednesday, saying there wouldn't be anything to see yet.. and will reschedule it later.

Those numbers are great! Your first draw was done on Wednesday, and this one was done on Tuesday. If you need to double every 48-72 hours, than your numbers would need to be between 151.6 - 227.5. Your number was 247. So that's more than double every 48 hours. Don't be down....it's good!!!!!

Congratulations!! Bummer about the ultrasound being canceled. Was it rescheduled?

I am not at all bummed about the hcg. The progesterone concerns me.. since everywhere i read said it needs to be apx 20+. And all the boards I have read, women were put on supplements when they weren't at least 15. Some higher than that. I just dont want to miss anything.

No, she didn't reschedule it. She kept asking me what I wanted to do.. well, heck, I wanted to keep the same appt. So.. I was frustrated with her and said I would call her back. I will wait and see what the Perinatologist says on Monday.. I trust her more when it comes to this stuff.

Oh.. and I have a repeat beta on Tuesday morning.

Great news on your beta! Congrats!

I'm trying to go back in my memory bank, which can be a challenge most days , but I believe my RE told me once that you really won't seee much on an u/s until you get up around 2000 HCG level so probably another week for you. 6 weeks is usually good time for a first scan.

As for the prog, I'm not much help because that was not a number I tracked all that closely because supplements were normal protocol for IVF. If it's nagging at you though, keep pursuing it until you get an answer you're happy with.

Congrats again, I'm so excited for you!

Can you insist on going on the progesterone? I'm no help with these levels because I've never had to get blood drawn.

My progesterone was low after the first bleeding scare and they put me on supplements but in my case I believe it just prolonged the inevitable 3 weeks later. I wouldn't worry too much about the level as long as it's going up. I think it's a can't hurt kind of call so if you really want to be on a supplement call and insist.

Well I just got the automated call from the OB's office to confirm both the appt and the u/s for Wednesday. I'm not complaining. We will see what happens on Monday though.

I looked up some natural ways to increase progesterone... tomorrow nights menu: Venison!
