Anyone else dealing with this issue?<br><br>
I had some bloodwork done this past Wed, and my progesterone level was only 5.8 . I know that is VERY low, and my MW says it more than likely indicates a non viable pregnancy.<br><br>
Also had my HCG measured, and this past Wed it was just over 5000, and today it was just under 8000. The Dr said that shows a nonviable pregnancy, but everything I've read inlins says once you reach 6000, the doubling thing no longer applies.<br><br>
I did have an ultrasound, and baby is measuring 6.1 weeks, and has a heartrate of 113 (dr tried to tell me this is low, but that is false- 113 at 6 weeks is FINE)<br><br>
I'm going to start progesterone cream tonight, and hopefully find an OB/GYN on Monday who will see me and give me progesterone supplements.<br><br>
Good news- no spotting, and no cramping. Feeling VERY pregnant w/ ms and fatigue.<br><br>
It's just a waiting game now.<br><br>
Ayone else in the same boat?

Does your MW not have the ability to write a prescription? Do you have a GP? You don't necessarily need an OB to write the script. My GP doesn't deliver babies, but he's up enough on well-woman care that he can handle early pregnancy stuff. Your own GP could probably get you in the quickest, or even do it tomorrow. I haven't had low progesterone, but I know others who have, and a big HUG to you. That ultrasound is awesome news, and just keep hanging on to that!

My level was a 6 last pregnancy and it totally freaked me out because of all the articles on the internet that say you wont have a viable pregnancy. I have a daughter now so it was obviously not true for every situation. I used last pregnancy and am using ProgesterAll cream this pregnancy. I wouldn't be concerned if you have already seen a heartbeat...your chances at this point are less than 5%, but I would definitely use the cream!

Yeah, my MW doesn not have the power to write a prescription. I never even thought of asking my GP- I'll give her a call in the AM before I start the rounds of all the OB/GYNs in the area.
