Just driving myself around the bend over thinking every thing and thought I'd just see if there were many experiences on Bubhub...
So it would appear I am still pregnant.
I've had a missed m/c in Jan, where baby just stopped growing at 6w2d and I lost bub at about 9-10 weeks...
I just had a spontaneous m/c on the 1st September... Just started bleeding one day at about 6 weeks...
I went back for a check up on the 10/10 and had an ultrasound which showed signs of ovulation, and a nice thick lining of 13mm.
I then felt pregnant and did a test on Sat 20/10 and got a bfp. Unable to help myself, I went off to the dr and had early monitoring, against my better judgement.
So it went like this
Tues-scan with a sac and yolk and an estimate of less than 5 weeks
Fri-hcg-1953, progesterone 22
So we pretty much just said goodbye right then and tried to deal with never having our third and focused on our beautiful family of 4. Drs apologized and all that...
And on Tues at the scan to confirm the pregnancy wasn't progressing there was a heartbeat 128bpm, a little bean at 6w2d (I REALLY wish it could have been 6w3d or ANYTHING else) and everything where it should be and looking healthy.
The dr has suggested I go on progesterone pessaries, 2 a day until at least 10 weeks.
They didn't have any in any of the chemists in my tiny town, so one of them is ordering some in... Because I'm not an ivf patient I have to pay full price which is $100 a week. And while it stings a bit, you can't put a price on something that may help bub stay put.
Anyway, I guess my main question is; is 22 really low? Has anyone had a level like that and had no problems? The week between finding it so low and actually starting the support is a bit worrying.
There's not a whole lot of stories out there about non-fertility-treatment people taking progesterone. I guess I'm just really hoping for some stories because the two weeks between scans is looooong.
I'm soooo glad I asked them to check it.
