I am currently six weeks pregnant. I had a miscarriage back in July. I found out about 10 days ago that I am pregnant again. I had my hcg and progestrone levels checked last week when I was 5 wks 3 days preg and my hcg was 226 and my progestrone was 16. My doctor was out but another practitioner thought my hcg was a little low so we re-tested at 6 wks 2 days. My hcg was up to 2898 but my progestrone had dropped to 10. My doctor is still out of vacation, but was able to check my levels while gone and called the nurse and wants me to start on progestrone suppositories to help with those levels. He said that the increase in my hcg was good and went up alot in just six days. However, I am very worried about my drop in progestrone. I have not been able to speak with my doctor yet as he doesn't get back into the office for another week. I was wondering if anyone has had a similar situation and what your outcome was. I am just scared that I am going to have another miscarriage.
