daschund_mom - I take 200mg prometrium daily, which is why my progesterone is so high. I was taking it for a LP defect, so now I'm stuck w/ it till week 13 I think.
puff - the beta test measures the level of HcG in your blood (same thing a HPT measures). If there are issues w/ your pregnancy, som people go get 2 betas done, usually 48-72 hours apart, to measure the "doubling time". the #'s should double in 24-72 hours.
