My midwife first checked my progesterone 3 weeks ago and it was 11.0 (almost 6 weeks) was put on Prometrium pills 200mg, then again a week later it dropped to 10.3 and they doubled my pills and said to insert vaginally. Now at almost 8 weeks it dropped to 9.9 while on 400mg a day of Prometrium. My HCG is great, no bleeding, no pain, no problems. Am I miscarrying? Please be honest. I'm scared. Is there hope? What can I do?
thank you guys. I talked to my midwife and she said I could be miscarrying or I might be put on progesterone injections. They are trying to get me in today to see their supporting OB/GYN and hopefully I will get in for an ultrasound today. If baby is ok, then I will probably be put on injection therapy. I'm at work and I can't stop crying. I can't concentrate. I just want to know if my baby is ok.
so sorry you are dealing with this! not spotting is a great sign, i think low progesterone usually leads to spotting - it sounds like your midwife is on top of things, that is such a small change, try not to think of it as 'dropping' cause that sounds worse than staying the same even with the supplements, cause with daily variations in progesterone its really just like it has stayed the same - sure, it would be nice for it to be higher, but 10 is the low end of 'normal' in the early first trimester - every woman is different and HGC is a better indicator than progesterone in general - keep us updated after your ultrasound!
Thank you guys! I'm feeling better. The doctor talked to my midwife (He's her supporting doctor) and he wasn't worried at all. He said fluctuations happen a lot and to just keep my ultrasound on Friday and keep taking my progesterone.
She want to err on the side of caution though and she is having me use progesterone cream in addition to the pills for extra support. I'm going to do my best to not get negative or stressed. I won't allow the thought of miscarriage in my mind. I know it's possible, but I also believe in the law of attraction. I won't let my thoughts be any thing more than a healthy happy baby growing in me. :)
