I got my progesterone tested at 6w1d, and I just got the result at 9w today. It was an 18.6, which the nurse said was normal. I thought over 20 was better? I'm inclined to take her word for it, since I really don't want to take progesterone, but I just thought I'd ask you ladies too. Thanks.

The first dr I talked to about progesterone said 16,17 or 18 is good. This is the one thing about pregnancy and conception that I have found to range more than anything- even other drs I have personally seen have given me different numbers in the "good" range. Progesteron numbers confuse me, but I would say if your dr says he's not worried, you should be ok!

My doc said 12-49 is "normal", they prefer over 20, and mine came back at 27. I still had to do progesterone. Every doc's different. A friend of mine was at 9 when first tested and has an adorable 2 month old son now. I think your number sounds great. And, between 9-12 weeks the placenta takes over, so I doubt they'll mess with supplements for you at this point anyway.

I agree with Steph, if your doc's not worried, then you shouldn't be either.

Cool. Thanks. I could just be having a better than normal day, but I've been wondering if the placenta is taking over, because I haven't felt quite as nauseous lately.
