Viable pregnancy

here is my story. I had my last period on Jan 13 2008 after that I have little spotting till 22nd. We did intercourse on 19th. I had stomach pain on 22nd, I went to the OBGYN on 23rd and they did a blood test and found that i am pregnant. My HCG level was 211. here are the blood test results.
1/23 - 211
1/25 - 427 and prog was 3.7 The doc put me on progesterone suppositories
1/29 - 697 and prog was 4.9
1/31 - 971 prog was 14.4
2/5 - 2046
2/13 - 3519
2/26 - 3107
They did an ultra sound on 2/22nd and found a gestational sac. Another one on 2/26 and found the fetal pole is forming.
After 2/26 the doctor called me since the HCG lvel went down from 3519 to 3107 its gonna miscarriage. But I dont have any bleeding or cramping.
Is this a viable pregnancy or not? Is it better to wait for some time? Can you please advice.

i am so sorry.  i know how you feel right now. i had an ectopic rupture a few months ago, and my hcg levels didn't drop, but they just didn't double, so they told me i was either gonna mc or it was ectopic. they were right. it was the most horrible thing i have ever had to go through.  an even when they tell you its gonna fail, you still hold out hope. it sounds like you will probably mc.  i feel for you and know this is hard. there are a lot of women who have been through similar situations on these forums. it is a great support. and you can offer your support to others who are going through the same thing.
good luck to you. i am here if you wanna talk.

With a prog level of 3.7 you should have been instructed this would result in a failed pregnancy (and possibly an ectopic- a pregnancy outside of the uterus).  Supplemental progesterone has not been shown to be effective when used in this fashion.  Additionally, your hCG levels have not risen appropriately.  So no, this will not be a viable pregnancy.  You can discuss mgmt options with your ob/gyn.

Best regards,

One of my friends had a mc and she knew about it at 6 weeks and didnt start bleeding until 8 weeks.  your hcg levels should definetely be rising.  sorry!!  good luck.
