As if I needed something more to worry over (pg ment)

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.

  1. Ugh. Oh Brittanie I'm so so sorry. Some women have progressively low progesterone every pg and just don't know it. I did and didn't know it until I was pg with R. I'm sending you good thoughts and prayers.
