I got my beta moved up to today (tuesday) instead of wednesday because I am 14 dpo today and I didn’t want to wait any longer since I am already spotting. Last night I didn’t take my folic acid and I skipped my progesterone suppository. I didn’t even poas. I just went through my day knowing it would be negative and then I would prep for ivf. I waited all day and the nurse finally called.
So there is good news and bad news. Good news is I am currently pregnant. HCG was 167. Bad news is that my progesterone level was at 1. My nurse said that she has not seen anyone come back from that. She said it is most likely a non-viable pregnancy, an early miscarriage, or an ectopic pregnancy. They are going to watch me closely and see if my progesterone rises. Originally I was supposed to come back in on friday for a repeat blood test since thanksgiving they are closed. After I got that news I started going into a tailspin. I have never ever ever been pregnant before, but now it’s going to be not viable and possibly ectopic??? I called back and the nurse said she was glad I called back because it’s a lot to throw at me at once. I asked if I could go somewhere else that would be open and she said no because it’s hard to compare levels from place to place because their array is different. She then said I could come in tomorrow (wednesday) to see what things are doing. She said that things won’t double because it hasn’t been long enough, but if things are going up that could be a good thing. She still was very adamant that she didn’t think it was viable because it was so low. I asked if I took more progesterone suppositories would help. She said at this point it probably won’t. Just for my own piece of mind I am going to continue the progesterone just so I know I did everything I could. I am mad at myself though that I drank soda and such during the 2ww. I know that people take drugs and drink alcohol and do all sorts of weird things and have normal pregnancies, but ugh.
So tomorrow I go back in to see. I hope the progesterone goes up. They are going to watch me closely to see what happens. Please please please go up. My mom says that this is a good thing. Not good in that I may be misscarrying, but good in that I have shown that I can get pregnant and that my doctors can see that my last cycle does work, but now they have to do something to supplement my progesterone or do something so that this does not happen again. I still hope I manage to pull this out. I’m trying not to put too much hope into this, but I can’t help it.
Has anyone had low progesterone, like really low, and still managed to have a healthy pregnancy? I hope someone out there has.
