I got my BFP @ 11dpo (last Thurs), with an immediate + and fairly dark as well.
On 12dpo (last Fri), I did the following bloodwork:
hCG = 180
progesterone = 43.9
On 15dpo (Mon)---
hCG = 738
progesterone = not ready yet
At 5dpo, my progesterone was 11.7.
I started progesterone suppositories 100mg, 2x/day at 11dpo (last Thurs).
I did not use a progesterone suppository in the AM prior to going for the 12dpo bloodwork.
Is this really high progesterone of 43.9 at 12dpo something to be concerned about?
FWIW, this was my first AF post-m/c. Perhaps I still have high progesterone from that pregnancy? In my m/c pregnancy, I used the suppositories (but started too late) and the highest I ever got was 24 - much later on in pregnancy than now.
RE hCG - I calculated a doubling time of 35.37. That is great, right? My loss pregnancy was within range but not nearly this quick.
Migraines - I woke with a migraine both yesterday and today. I do have migraines in my past - usually related to constipation. And I am experiencing constipation with this pregnancy. But not really right now - and I've got a migraine. Can the high progesterone cause this?
I worry about migraines, as I had them at the end with my loss pregnancy :( so I worry about migraine = loss.
Thanks so much!
