My progesterone was last checked at 12 dpo and it was just about 15, and she said that early anything above 10 is good so she wasn't worried about it.

I know to me it is weird. I'm not cramping or having any pain or spotting. So we will see. I asked if they will even be able to see anything at 4 weeks 5 days and she said we would be able to see the sac and it's location.

I also asked the assistant if I should consider myself as miscarrying, she put me on hold to ask my dr and came back to say, the dr said everything could still be good, we just want to be certain.

I just don't understand why she thinks ectopic? Because the levels are on the low end of the range I guess, but they aren't bad.

Wow , well I'm glad they are being so proactive with you, IF it was ectopic it could mean the difference in saving your tube. But that's sometimes why I hate early monitoring.. I feel like sometimes it's added stress...

And it gets weirder...

So the Dr's assistant just called back to say the Dr talked to radiology and they think since I'm not experiencing back pain I should wait to have an ultrasound for two weeks and they asked if that was alright. I said it was okay if I can have another blood draw lol and so they ordered it.

I also asked if the Dr is comfortable moving the ultrasound out...

A) because I'm not feeling pain or spotting and so they think the risk is low
B) because I'm only 4 weeks 5 days we probably wouldn't see anything?

And the assistant told me the Dr said it's a combination of both.

They said come in immediately if I have any back pain. Sooooo.

To me it seems crazy that they're stressing you out! I'm so sorry! I would definitely be seen right away if you have pain but I think at 4+5 they may not see anything and it may stress you out. A progesterone of 15 is normal. They thought I had an ectopic last May and my progesterone was 6.1. So they did suspect because of that.

Jess I'm so sorry, I'm not sure why they are thinking that, everything seems fine with you and all your levels?? This is why IMO a lot of the early monitoring/ tests/ scans etc seem more trouble than they're worth. I've heard of so many ladies having an early scan only to be told 'no heartbeat, your going to miscarry' and LO is perfectly healthy! Try not to worry hun, it sounds like everything is just fine

Wow, Passion, thats some impressive numbers

Jess, I think we sometimes read too much in the numbers and results, the normal range for HCG levels are quite huge ranges. There's so many tests, etc. to do and it just makes me wonder how people did it 50 years ago? My granny told me that they could not even predict the gender when she was pregnant, yet they had healthy babies. In that sense I am happy that my obgyn is the old fashioned kind, she has been doing this 40 years and is close to 70 years old, so she only does 1 bloodtest to confirm when the appointment date is and then do the bloodtest for diseases after that date. I am sure everything is going to be OK Jess.

AFM - woke up during the night for a wee wee and my breasts was super sore and sensitive, actually feels better now. And nausea again this morning, I guess MS is starting to rock up. I should be around 5 weeks today Will be phoning my doctor today and hopefully get an appointment date. Hopefully by the end of March
