I had my first appointment last Tuesday and I was 7w2d. My midwife had my hcg and progesterone levels checked with my blood work. I'm not sure why, as I've never had it done in past pregnancies and I don't have a history or miscarriages. Maybe it's my age? I'm 35 and this is baby #4. Anyways, my levels came back as 33,333 for hcg and 10.10 progesterone. The nurse called to tell me my progesterone is on the low side and they have now started me on 200mg prometrium/ day. I don't know much about this except what I read on google. Should I be worried? Does this mean I will most likely miscarry. Any of your personal stories would be great. I don't go back in until February 2 for my sono and I'm nervous.
Re: Normal hcg levels but low progesterone?
As for whether you should worry. That's hard to say. Sometimes, the progesterone is just low, and other times, the progesterone is low because there is a problem. Some providers don't even consider 10 to be low. I hope the best for you.
