You mentioned that you have low progesterone, so are you taking progesterone supplements? Did you see a heart beat at your ultrasounds? I know a lot of doctors say that as long as the hcg is rising it doesn't necessarily have to double. Mine more than doubled even after I lost the baby at 8.5 weeks so hcg levels aren't always the best indication for a viable pregnancy (as long as they're not dropping). I think that by 8-9 weeks you should be monitered by u/s.
My hcg levels at 3wks3days was 51,000 and my progesterone level at 2 weeks was 14 which the doctor said was normal. But everyones hcg levels seem to be more lower than mine as well as websites I have found. So if anyone can tell me about those I would appreciate it. They did an u/s at 2 weeks and couldn't find anything of course not it was too early next week I will be 5 weeks so we will see where I am at.
definatly not all women hcg levels double everybodys bodys are different as long as its rising that is a good sign.oh yeah doctors always tend to scare there patients hope everything goes ok for you best of luck.
Hi everyone and thanks for your comments. Yes, I am taking progesterone suppositories. I guess the other thing that is scaring me is that I just don't feel pregnant - no morning sickness, no bloating. My breasts have stopped hurting and don't seem as big as they were a couple of weeks ago. Of course, this could all be in my head.
Does anyone know of a situation like this where someone goes on to have a successful pregnancy?
