So ---- I am still PREGNANT

The doc finally called - well the nurse did, the doc was in surgery.

My beta on Tuesday was 17 and P4 was 4.4

Today, my beta was 40 and P4 was 5

Betas are supossed to double every 48-72 hours. And 40 is more than double. It is so bizarre how I could bleed this much and still have doubling betas.

As far as the low P4 - P4 should be MUCH higher than 5. At 5dpo I was put on Prometrium (P4) and my dose was 1x a day. At beta #1, my dose was increased to 2x a day. Today, they are keeping it at 2x a day.

One thing I have to remember is that I have heard that since the Prometrium is taken vaginally, it is possible that it does not show up in bloodwork.

I go back on Monday - so, if I am still pregnant, I would expect to see a HUGE jump in the beta.

Your progesterone levels will rise with the Prometrium. Trust me...mine was 15 at 13 dpo, we upped the dosage to 2x/day and 2 days later it was up to 28 and continued to rise to the 40's. You should definitely see a rise there. Good luck with everything. I've been where you are and I know how bad it sucks...
