I have had 2 miscarriages in past 6 months; I have had two normal pregnancies. After the last 2 miscarriages I was put on a progesterone suppository to thicken the lining of uterus.

An ultrasound confirmed I was 7 1/2 weeks pregnant and heartbeat was there.

Doctor did additional blood work a week later and said my progesterone levels had dropped ... what does this mean? Do I have to fear yet another miscarriage or is normal for levels to dip?

I dont really know much about progesterone levels but I did a google search and found a few sites.

Cheree,

Thank you for the websites. I'm now in my ninth week and haven't lost the baby, so hopefully doubling my progesterone has worked.

I see the doctor today.

After 2 miscarriages it's hard not to be scared with every little change.

Susan

I know how nerve wracking it can be when you have had misscarraiges I have had two misscarraiges the last one was last august and I am pregnant again around 8 weeks and I am worrying about losing this one to. I wish you luck.

So far so good! I had a 2nd ultrasound last week when the doctor couldn't hear the baby's heart beat.

Wow - what a difference from the very first one! -- you coud definately see the baby's heart beating and how much it's grown in two weeks.

Thank you for your well-wishes. I'm beginning to relax a bit more but will be happy when I get to 12 weeks!

Susan
