I had my first OB appointment today. When I went in last week for the ultrasound to make sure everything was okay after the bleeding, they also checked my progesterone. I don't think I've ever had my progesterone checked before. I got a call back saying my levels were a little low and I started prometrium.
Well, today going over the paperwork, she told me that they weren't just a little low, but they were quite low. She wanted them around 20. Mine was 9.7.
I had another ultrasound and everything looked good. Great heartbeat, no other issues. But I can't get that number out of my head. I wish she hadn't told me. It's one of those cases when too much information can be a bad thing. In my mind I almost feel like it's a losing battle and it's just a matter of time.
This sucks. There's no other word for it.
