    I think I'm here to stay!

    Beta was 3743
    progesterone was 17.3

    Is the progesterone low? Hopefully I'll get a DD on Tuesday - I have no idea when I conceived - my LMP was early 9/04.

    Kelly,

    CONGRATS!! That's a great beta number. I would have to agree that your progesterone is low though. Mine was 16 and I was put on supplements ASAP. I would call your Dr. and talk to them about that.

    Belly Rubs to you!!!

    I am so glad that your HCG looks so great. I am not sure about the Progesterone. Hopefully your Dr. can reassure you there!

    Congratulations. I also think you should talk to your dr. about progesterone supplements. My RE says they like to see the level above 25. With supplements mine right now is at 39. I get tested every week.

    My doctor told me yesterday that the progesterone is fine. Someone else told me that because it was a natural pg, that it can be lower and still be fine.

    I like my chances - I have been feeling awful!

    Congratulations!

    I'm also on progesterone supplements but my doc didn't tell me what my level was just that it was low. I'm feeling awful right there with you - I keep telling myself it's a good sign.

    This pregnancy for me was also natural, they did a progesterone check on me and it was 20. I thought it was low, they said absolutely not, as long as its over 11 they were happy.

    Congratulations!!!
