hello-- my name is christina, and I have a situation that is seeming to perplex my doctors (ob specialists), so I was looking for some feedback.... a little history about me is that i had one miscarriage at 12 weeks in 2011 (needed a d and c), and one child born in 2012.
i got pregnant in july 2013 and had a really early miscarriage (at 4 weeks 1 day). doc said that without early detection pg tests i wouldnt have even known i was pregnant. he said that since it was so early i didnt need to wait before getting pg again. well, 2 weeks later (late july/early aug) I got pg again.
I am currently 5 weeks, but have had some bleeding off and on past week, which has tapered off. doctor did a hcg test on monday evening and levels were at 124, but progerestone was at .5. Doc called and said I was going to miscarry, that no supplements would help since progesterone was so low, and just to wait for the miscarriage to happen. Well, I am just not a "wait and see" kind of girl!
Doctor wants to rule out ectopic, so they had me do another hcg test 48 hours later, and my levels tripped to 384!! doctor is perplexed how that has happened, and wants to do another hcg test month. they still arent retesting progesterone.
My questions: is it possible for progesterone levels to rise on their own? Anyone have this happen? If I was having another m/c, would my hcg be doubling? I feel really out of control right now, and am looking for any different perspective that can be offered....
