Hi!
If you were my patient, I would advise you that if you have a healthy baby that is appropriately grown based on ultrasound, your progesterone levels are probably just fine.  Once the placenta has formed, between 7 and 12 weeks, it will start pumping out lots and lots of progesterone.  It is possible to do another blood test, but if everything is fine, there is probably no need to do so.
Good luck!
