Welll I didn't get the good news that I was looking for today. It looks like another m/c. Since I don't know when I O'd I can only go by approx. dates for dpo. My HCg levels aren't doing so well.

July 10 - 620 (approx. 22dpo)
July 12 -570 (approx. 24dpo)

My prog. level was 23 but my doctor said she likes to see it be around 30 so she prescribed 100mg of prometrium 2x a day (for a total of 200mg). I've been reading that prog. levels above 20 are considered good and my dr is saying they're not. My dr was also telling me that since my HCG was in the 500-600 range I'm only about 3 weeks pg, but that goes against everything that I've read. Maybe 3 weeks after conception but not 3 weeks total.

I'm so sad and confused and just want to scream!!!! My dr is giving me conflicting info and it reduces the confidence that I have in her.

How can my prog. be okay and my HCG levels decrease? I've read that there's a correlation between dehydration and a drop in HCG and that a vanishing twin can also cause a drop. I'm terrified of trying to grasp onto hope but I have no idea what to time and I'm so upset!

Sorry to hear that you're going through this! If you're losing confidence in your doctor, don't be afraid to try a different one. Hopefully the fact that your progesterone is still doing ok is a good sign. I pray that it will turn out all right for you.

Take care!

Nicole I was so sorry to read this. I know it is causing you absolute panic.

I too have heard of some people having dropping HcG & still being okay, I am hoping htey drew another sample today to compare. I think sometimes it can be lab error - or vanishing twin as you said. I know too that she said "if you are 3 wks"...but my Dr kept screwing that up this last time I was pg. I O'd 5 days late (according to my chart) ..and even then, according ot initial HcG's I would have also had to implant late - which made me much earlier in the pg then he could ever seem to remember. So even if you O'd & knwo when - implantation has varying rates & lots of things have variables in early pg. I hope this is just one of them. When you feel up to it - please update us & tell us how you are. I know it is hard to receive anything other than great news, particularly after having been down the road before & knowing the possibilities & believing that you are doomed. I send you much love & peace & hopes that everything is goign to turn around for you.
