Got the call from the nurse...she said my pregnancy is progressing! But I am still on ectopic watch.

my HCG went from 42 to 133.5!
my progesterone went from 2 to 8!

I go back for more bloodwork Monday to see if my number continues to double and if my progesterone rises. I was instructed to keep taking my progesterone supplements.

If everything goes well Monday, I might be able to have an ultrasound Friday. Then we can rule out if it's ectopic or in my uterus.

Firstly that's a lovely update!
Whatever the reason for your lower progesterone it isn't your fault. I think I would be tempted to ask to increase to 2x 200mg daily, spread across 12 hours because progesterone starts to drop at around 12 hours. Also, the pessaries won't reflect in your bloods because they don't work that way, so your bloods will come back as what you are making on your own as far as I understand it. The pessaries are to help support pregnancy as a top up on your own levels, but after a lot of Googling I have read that they don't show in blood work.
It's important to use them the whole time you know you're pregnant and it's progressing, until possibly 12 weeks. I know you missed one but I wouldn't panic about it. You didn't cause the bleeding because you didn't use it as it started anyway.
Early pregnancy bleeds don't just have to be light or spotting, sometimes they are heavier and more like a period, and things can still be fine.
It's good they're keeping an eye on you, but it looks as if things are progressing normally, but I would definitely ask about increasing progesterone. I think it's only the injections that show up in your blood

I think that sounds like a good idea. With my DS I had to take 2 suppositories daily. I wonder why they haven't advised me to do that yet. I went this morning for another round of blood work to check my HCG levels. The nurse usually calls me in the late afternoon. If all is still going well, I will ask her about doubling up on them. Thank you for easing my worries about the bleeding. I've been desperately trying to find personal stories of women who bled and went on to have successful pregnancies.

I hope your results return good
Lots of women experience bleeds of all kinds early on and things are fine. Usually there isn't an obvious cause

Got the call....it wasn't good news.

My beta only went from 133.5 to 165.4
So it stopped doubling. I have to go for an ultrasound Friday to find out if it's in my tube or uterus and then figure out if we need to do a D&C or that methotrexate shot.

So bummed.
