Oh I hope you get a RX for some progesterone suppositories STAT! I'm shocked they are making you wait!!!

I am SO GLAD your numbers doubles, and will continue to pray for you and your LO!

I, too, am confused on making you wait.... I'd demand progesterone right now, honestly. like now.

I'll continue hoping that your beanie keeps on growing and your progesterone and hcg goes up as it should!

Now, look this up (or ask your doc) to be sure, but from what I understand you should take Prometrium, not Provera for sustaining a pregnancy. I would ask your doc NOW to get a Rx - I am shocked they didn't give you one after those results!!

I hope the pain and bleeding ends for you soon!!

YAY for good news!! But I am also shocked that they didnt give you any progesterone. My RE wanted it 20 and above...even with doing PIO injections once a day mine never got much higher than 20 and even dipped to 19.1 at one point. I was on injections until 12 weeks. There are lots of different kinds of progesterone they can give you though, but to be honest I would call and request some. In my mind whether they are thinking its a m/c or not they should have given you some just to be safe!! I still say you are VERY pregnant!! Your numbers are looking alot like mine did. Oh and I also had bleeding and cramping early on...actually had a SCH (subchronic hematoma)!

Your progesterone is dangerously low with being pregnant. You need some supplements right away!

Its great that your numbers doubled though! You absolutely can not let a day go by without getting progesterone though, even if you have to run to the store and get some progesterone cream, yours is just way too low!

Provera (Medroxyprogesterone Acetate) :: Health-Science.Com ::

Yeah, I wouldn't take the provera. That site says you should stay away from it. You need to get prometrium. I would call right now and demand it! Good luck!

Popping in with my 2 cents ...

Call NOW and ask for the Prometrium suppositories !
My local CVS has them on hand ... your Dr can call in the RX.

I have always taking Prometrium starting with 2 days ofter ovulation ... hoping to get that uterus good and sticky.

{{ HUGS }}

Keeping you in my thoughts !!

Just lurking on here. I'm so glad you have an appointment and definitely agree with the other girls about the progesterone. Mine was 13 when I miscarried, but 53 with my past pregnancy and they still kept me on progesterone until I was around 10-11 weeks.

I'm keeping you in my thoughts and prayers that everything goes well tomorrow.

how are you today???? has the bleeding completely stopped? how was your appointment?? Did you get progesterone.. You really need to get ur dr to give you it.. your level is way to low....( My problem was my progesterone.. i kept getting pregnant and losing it because of progesterone) so progesterone scares me..

u did ivf right? dont they always give progesterone with ivf?
