Shanon - May 14

Hi I am 4.5 weeks pregnant with IVF baby and its mey second pregnancy the first was hassle free with no problems . I have been spooting for 3 days then bleeding red blood for 2 days then lighten today . thinking I had miscarried I went to the clinic for bloods to read my HCG levels and Progesterone. Four days ago they were HCG 69 and progesterone 21 at 4.5 weeks and today 4 days later they are HCG 297 and progesterone 6.6 the nurse has pretty much said I will miscarry if I haven't already but Is there any hope has anyone had a successful pregnancy from these levels? I am taking progesterone supositiries but the nurse doesn't thin they will help but can't hurt. any help would be appreciated.

maybe try calling and see if they can give you extra progesterone on top of the suppositories- maybe try the PIO injections- some doctors think it is a better way to deliver the progesterone faster. it is a painful shot taken each night into the muscle (progesterone in oil), but maybe it is worth asking about? good luck to you
