Hey guys,

Okay so first of all- no sono today. I was bummed but was able to recover b/c the rest of my appt. went great.

My progesterone went from 19 to 106. My doctor was thrilled w/that and I'm now going from 400mg to 200 mg daily. I go next week for another level check. My estrogen has remained good - it was 414, and needs to be at least 300.
I expressed all my concerns about another miscarriage (boy did I). My doctor said that if I am going to m/c again I will - but it will not be due to hormonal issues. I asked about another missed m/c possibility-- I have been very concerned about that since last time I began spotting a few days after I discontinued the prometrium. She said that was a coincidence- that the prometrium will not cause a missed m/c. I need to continue to watch for spotting. However the two are not related. She put me on pelvic rest- no exercise, no sex- for the next month.

She also said the 10/11 wk. u/s will be to check the SCH more than anything. She still does not seem too concerned about that, mainly due to the small size.

She assured me that I have as much (or little) risk of m/c than any other woman who has never had one. I asked about my "history" though-- and she said my history shows two perfectly healthy children and one m/c so odds are in my favor. She said she knew I was worried, and agreed I'm still in the "danger zone" but said any pregnant woman is at this point. She told me to try to relax and enjoy this time b/c I am pregnant!

She did a pap and pelvic exam and said my uterus feels about 8 weeks along, and she could tell growth from last week. That was great news.

So all in all I couldn't complain too much. It was hard, knowing that the sono machine was just two doors down, but DH said, and I have to agree, that if she felt an u/s was necessary she'd do one. That the fact she didn't is wonderful news.

I felt she was straight-forward, yet understanding today.

Thanks for your thoughts and prayers.

Thank you Vicki for an beautiful siggy!
