I just got back from my first dr. appt. She upped my dosage of Prometrium to 200 mg. because my progesterone at 12 dpo was only 13.5. She also said that I can continue to get beta panels until my levels are at 2000 and then we'll do an early ultrasound. I've practically made myself sick the last week worrying over whether things were progressing as they should, but I now feel that I have done everything humanly possible to help this pregnancy along. It is truly now in God's hands (it always was). I just felt like I needed to post this to put somewhat of an end to my early obsessing (not to say that I won't obsess more, later on )

I'm glad your doc is working so closely with you and hope the progesterone does the trick. It's worked for quite a few of the ladies around here (me included). Giving this pg to God was the best thing I ever did, though.

And feel free to obsess all you want/need to! We all did/do!!

I am wishing you all the best. I know how hard it is not to worry at times. Try to hang in there.

When I was as far along as you, I was feeling all the same. Although I'm only almost 8 weeks, I feel so much better about this pregnancy than all my last. My doctor has also been monitoring me very closely and I have my 3rd u/s on Monday and I'm also on 200mg Prometrium. I think it's working great. Don't worry about obsessing .. I know it's hard not to do!!
