I have read a lot of posts that touch on low progesterone or hcg but not both at different times.
I am in the midst of the non-viable rollercoaster. After trying for 2yrs my husband an i decided to seek IVF whilst in Adelaide. As it turns out we apparently weren't going to fall pregnant without it.
Rd1 IVF - cycle 15 eggs 14 fertilised, 1 transferred and on e in the fridge resulted in nothing not even an attachment.
Rd 2 IVF -With only one in the fridge we opted for a fresh cycle and had 19 eggs, 19 fertilised, 2 transferred (28March2011) & 6 freezable. We were really happy with result. Faint line on hpt and Clear Blue conception indicator want move off 1-2 weeks!
Blood Test 1- (16Apr) it was given with caution & I'm sorry but the progesterone is only 1 but the HCG was good 123 - you were so close the nurse said. Continue with Crinone (progesterone cream) & prognova (estrogen tablets 2 x daily)
Blood Test 2 -(19Apr, 5 weeks 1 day) progesterone now 27 so OK but the HCG only 182 still non-viable. Continue meds.
Blood test 3 - (22 Apr) progesterone now 24 still OK but the HCG only 286 still non-viable should m/c in next few weeks if not an ultrasound will be done. D&C may be required. Continue meds.
So Wed is my ultrasound and I'll be 7.2 weeks and despite light bleeding over last week which has completely stopped no cramping, but lots of smell aversions & other symptoms.
Its hard to be 7 weeks today and not hold some hope despite the news not getting any better. Apparently its only a 1% chance we'll see a heartbeat. Lucky to have a wonderful husband to hold my hand!
