I went to my first apt. yesterday and had labs done. They think I'm 5w3d but not sure since periods were really irregular right before. My HCG was over 7,000 which is good but my progesterone levels were 9.7 and she wanted them to be around 15. I will now have to be on medicine for the next 3 months to try to up these levels. She said that low levels could cause loss of pregnancy. So I'm concerned! Has anyone else had this problem??? I would love some advice b/c I'm scared. We have fist u/s for next Tues and I hope we'll see hb!

This is my third pregnancy and this is the first time I have been prescribed progesterone. I have to take it the whole first trimester. With that being said I know TONS of friends and my sister who had to take progesterone during their first trimester. It is really very common and not a big deal. We will be fine Good luck.

Oh and I just saw the hb at 6 weeks exactly so hopefully you will too!

Thank you Tasha_mae for my amazing siggy!

I'm just lurking... but wanted to let you know my progesterone levels were low at the beginning of my pregnancy too. They put me on prometrium for a few weeks and that was that. My little guy will be 7 weeks old tomorrow.

Good luck!
