Heartbeat was 113...is that normal?

That is fantastic news!

Are they going to recheck your progesterone levels and/or give you supplemental progesterone? 1.5 is low even for non-pregnant women. If it were me, I'd be demanding a progesterone supplement now!

Uh, yeah, if your P4 is 1.5, get on a supplement now.

For comparison purposes, I did IVF so my corpeus luteum didn't form and I'm not producing adequate P4 on my own, and my level is about 11.

I'm on supplements, but they aren't reflected in the bloodwork, since it just goes directly to my uterus.

I'm so happy to hear this, mama!

thank you guys so much! when i first when in the room I really thought i was going to get bad news, my sister came with me and she was a bit more positive than me lol. She said we see the sac but its empty and by now you should see atleast a fetal pole, the doc comes in and says that i may be earlier than what I think so come back in 2 weeks. I said ok, then my sis says...whats that moving? the tech says THATS THE BABY! we found the baby and its heartbeat! god really does do great things. I just hope when i go back in 2 weeks its still looking good, but i promised my sis i wouldnt be negative..but with google at my hands thats hard lol

I'm so sorry (also sorry to ddc crash). I know what you mean. With my first pregnancy I had TWO great u/s with beating hearts at 8 and 12 weeks and then at 12.5 weeks I lost the baby. No idea why. I had already told the world (since you would assume two good u/s and being that far along you'd be "okay") it sucks that you just never know

HUGS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

me, dh and 2 boys = our family (oh and a cat...who is also a male...lol)

thanks girls. I am in the process of miscarrying now I just cant believe it happen twice in a row, I really thought that this baby was going to stick. DH and I are probably not going to try again. I guess we were meant to be a family of 5. Thanks so much for being there and listening to me.
