I am 8 weeks 4 days today. I had an ultrasound and progesterone blood work today. The ultrasound that the baby looked great (heart beat and movement). The nurse called this afternoon and said that my progesterone level was 23.8 (the nurse said 25 and higher is where it should be). Last week the level was 45.9. She told me to increase my vaginal progesterone dose to twice a day (400 mg). I am really scared. Has anyone had a significant drop in progesterone level and everything was ok? This is my first pregnancy- so I am a ball of nerves anyway.View Thread
