Last Thursday I took 2 HPT and both were positive.

Sorry I can't offer any advice on Progesterone levels, but I wanted to welcome you to the board and send you lots of sticky baby vibes, and let you know that, in spite of an early scare, everything seems to be turning out okay with my pregnancy. At the hospital where they did my initial pregnancy test, a very early US (during wk 4) failed to clearly show anything in my uterus. As a result, a PA at the hospital told me the pregnancy might be ectopic, and I spent two weeks thinking it might not be viable. My hormone levels were checked at the beginning of week 6 and found to be increasing appropriately, and two days later another US clearly showed a sac in my uterus with a few little specs in it, and detected a heartbeat. Then the morning sickness really kicked in. At 13 wks 4 days an NT screen showed an unbelievably (at least to me) detailed view of my little one (10 fingers and all) with no signs of DS or deformity, and at 18 weeks 4 days the baby was seen to be a normally developing little boy. Now I'm just hanging on for the big day. I'm 42 and will be 43 by my due date, and all appears to be well, aside from some of the typical pregnancy annoyances (after the MS, it was heartburn, then a rash, and rapid weight gain since early March).
Congratulations and hope you'll be here to share your journey with us.
Make a pregnancy ticker
thank you everyone.
Congratulations! Wishing you all the best.
I know my OBs office says anything over 10 is considered "okay", but that they prefer to see progesterone over 20. Sounds like your hCG levels are fantastic!!!
The only time I had a progesterone level problem (and it really wasn't a problem) was when we conceived our first born via IVF. B/c you take drugs to stimulate ovulation, the pituitary doesn't realize that you are pregnant and you must supplement with progesterone SHOTS (ugh!) until 12 weeks.
With my 2nd child (bonus baby!) and this 3rd baby (also a bonus) progesterone levels were really high/good!
Wishing you all the best...it is wonderful how they can provide progesterone supplements until the placenta takes over (10-12 weeks)!
Congratulations on your pregnancy! No advice here as I am pregnant for the first time. Best wishes though, and I'll be looking for your appointment update.
Congratulations! I am 44 and pg with #7. I was on 100mg of progesterone with my last baby and am again with this one. I don't remember my levels last time, but with this baby it was 14.5...still within "normal" but on the low end. My last pregnancy ended with a beautiful healthy baby boy and today I saw a healthy hb at my 7 wk u/s.
Good to have you join the board! I look forward to seeing more posts from you!
