For DS my prog was 417 and I was told to stop prog straight away and it kept rising, was 541 for 2nd bt and 552 for 3rd bt. So my body was doing its thing.

    Did u get lots of eggs at epu? The more eggs collected the more corpus luteum there are and they are producing progesterone in response to hcg from the embryo. The reason we are given progesterone support is as a back up because the corpus luteum, which were holding the eggs, can get damaged at epu.

    There is no harm in high progesterone levels, only low levels, that's why fs let u keep taking it. Most of the time it's not necessary but for peace of mind. That's what my fs told me. Around the 9-10 week mark of pregnancy the placenta starts taking over making progesterone, that's why hcg levels start to drop then and morning sickness usually peaks around this time. Has for me that's for sure.

    Hope ur allowed to stop crinone gross stuff
    Me too! I did have a lot of eggs at pick-up. They collected 27, and 21 were mature enough to use. I'm fine with a high level, I just find it silly to have to take Crinone if it's that high. I'll speak to the nurse today.

    I've also got a retroverted ute, so good to know for the scan. One less thing to worry about.

    Random Q: did you get your OB referral from your FS or GP? My GP is a pain to get to (I'll be swapping eventually) so hoped I could get it from FS.

    That's heaps of eggs!

    I got referral from my gp. If u get referral from fs it only lasts for 3 months and u need it for 12 months. Don't know why but referrals from specialists are only for 3 months. Annoying!

    Do u know which hospital u want to have the baby at? I'm going to Cabrini and they book out really early (like don't wait til 6wks!!). Pick ur hospital and then look at list of obs that deliver there. Feels crazy booking that early but that's what some popular hospitals are like.

    Yea - I was in rough shape for about a week after EPU. Was not pleasant.

    Just got the call from my FN and 17dp5dt my hcg is just under 2000 which she said is good. I asked about Crinone and she said my levels are great, and Lynn (my FS) will probably take me off it at the 7 week scan. FX!

    Re: my OB, I have really struggled to chose one. To make it easy, I may just go with the one my SIL used - Dr. Len Kilman at Freemason's. She said both and his midwives were great, so I figure why not. I don't have any risk factors that I know of.

    I also have a wee situation around the time of delivery. My DD is 3-Aug, and my little brother is getting married on 14-Aug - in Canada. So there is a good chance I'll be flying out there around 34 / 35 weeks and having the bub there. Will be good to have my mum and aunt's around for support too. I love my MIL, but it's not the same. I'm just not sure how an OB will take that or if I should even tell them.

    Hope the meds make u feel better 😊
    Me too. Every time they u/s me mine is in a different position. Apparently I have a very 'mobile' retroverted uterus. Ultrasound is tomorrow at 6+2, hope they see something positive

    Thanks everyone, it's not until this afternoon. M/s seems to be kicking in a little this morning finally so I'm sure it will all be good just feeling a little queasy yay (lol). I'm sure a lot of you won't share that sentiment
