The trials and tribulations of our journey to make a baby.

I would die for that.

Okay.. Here's the second Beta...

And Here's why I am freaking out a little

Beta #1- 619
Beta #2- Somewhere between 1100 and 1200. That's not doubling. I don't remember the exact number because I got so upset. But doubling is like 1230. I know it's close.. but remember that tomorrow is the day I miscarried last year.. and I am a little freaked out..

But the real freak me out numbers were the progesterone..
Prog #1- 24
Prog#2- 21

I have been searching Dr. Google all day and I can't find anything that says for sure if Progesterone can fluctuate in early pregnancy. In my mind.. the number went down. This is it. It's over.

The nurse said both numbers looked great and that I shouldn't worry. As long as the progesterone is over 10-15, I'm cool. If not I get supplements. So, I know she said that.. But, I don't believe her. Why would it go down. She was like, "don't worry if it gets around 15 we will give you progesterone". Fine. But my next appointment isn't for a week. (next tuesday is our first sono)

Ahhhh.... I am losing it. I have been weepy all afternoon.

Edited: I thought the better of posting the second part of this and took it off. ;)

Update: I put a call into the RE and asked them to have the doctor call me back. I need to hear form him that all is okay and that waiting a full week to do more bloodwork is fine.

Trish, if you are worried about the progesterone levels INSIST on getting supplements...

I don't think you have anything to worry about but if you are uneasy and supplements will make the difference - then INSIST on them...

Thinking of and praying for you and the little bean.

Oh and sorry your Dad told the siblings - he really should have respected your wishes... I think you need to tell him that he pissed you off...

I'm sending you prayers and positive, sticking thoughts...I think it is a good idea to call about the progesterone. Just for peace of mind, not because you should be worried.

As I will not claim to know anything about these numbers but I do think that it is important to do what makes you feel best!!!! You are in my thoughts.
