So, it was not doubling, in fact dropped and very slowly rising. So, I insisted on ultrasounds (since my OB just said "Be prepared for a miscarriage")
35 days: Gestational sac with yolk and 91bpm see through transvaginal ultrasound Today (43 days): 126 bpm through abdominal ultrasound
So, thats good news right?
While doing some online researches, I came across few discussions about Progesterone.
I insisted that we check those levels for me, the OB was very relucatant and she said she is not concerned about those at all. But, I had it anyway. The numbers are 7.6. Based on what I'm reading online the minimum is 9. I have requested her for a progesterone supplement to try preventing the miscarriage.
1. What are the chances that I will not miscarry - since HCG went down and now rising but slowly? 2. Can I forget about the HCG and just be happy with the fetal heartbeat? 3. Is my line of thought about Progesterone right? Will it help in anyway? I hear it is not a regular pill/shot, and that it is a pill that has to be inserted into the vagina. 4. If, God forbid, this pregnancy is not viable, is it better to miscarry naturally or D&C? the only + I can think of about D&C - may be they can test the fetus and find out if anything was wrong and if it could be corrected before I try to conceive next.
Appreciate all answers and more importantly the support and prayers.View Thread
