This is my 5th pregnancy. When I had a bloodtest at 22dpo, my progesterone came back at 15. I've never had low progesterone before, ever. I never spot, I have 14/15 day luteal phases, etc. Although I am nursing a 13 months and my cycles are a few days longer than normal. So since I'm 40 and have had a mc before my midwife put me on crinone. (yuck).
Anyways, I'm wondering - which pregnancy symptoms are caused by the progesterone and which are caused by the actual pregnancy? I feel pretty horrible (MS, exhausted, etc) but I think all of those are caused from progesterone? I'm pretty new to progesterone therapy but I'm hoping there are a few symptoms that are caused more by hcg then progesterone.
I just need something to hold on to that lets me know that the pregnancy is doing OK for now. Having had a missed MC, I hate feeling so in the dark...
Thanks in advance.
