7.4

Yup...that was what my progesterone was.

I told the nurse that made me sad because, it was less than last months and this month I had taken more clomid and had gotten the booster shot.

She said that it's just a waiting game and that I shouldn't give up on this month just yet because she has seen women get pregnant with that and even lower.

But those levels are pretty low and so my hope for this month is dwindling...

It's okay! Don't you worry yourself about that number! I've had months like that on HCG post peak and mucho clomid! It messes with your mind...Next month it will perform better! ;)

Don't give up on this cycle yet! Remember what happened last time you counted yourself out of the cycle...you did great!
Prayers for you!

My progestrone was 9.0 when I went in at 4 weeks and 3 days preggo. I went on the progestrone (pill form) and am now 22 weeks with a little girl!
Don't give up hope, you are doing the right thing!

Was that post peak, or what day did they do that draw? I am on HCG shots and it helped my progesterone considerably.

Thanks for the encouraging words lady! It's quite hard...feeling hopeful and then getting back the not so great results. Already feeling better though, thanks in part to my amazing dh, prayers and y'all! ;) Really though, thank you SOO much for the encouraging words!!!

Hebrews-this was 7dpo! Or maybe 6...one of the two! So that was why this month it was hard getting those results because my last month I didn't do the shot and it was 12 and this month with the shot it was only 7.4....

Oh, I know how disappointing that is when the P4 # isn't what you hope for. I had 3 myself. But do NOT throw in the towel. You may just need P4 support (it seems like all us IF girls get on it).

I'm not sure about all these numbers yet. They confuse me. But I know that I will learn b.c I start HCG this month. What should your levels be?? What should I expect to see??

Wish I could hug your neck. Sorry for this disappointment. But keep those other blogger posts in mind...they seem pretty positive about it all.

Hugs:)

Awaiting...: you will soon learn all numbers mean! What I've been told in regards to progesterone, is that they shoe if you ovulated and how strong it was. For example, they'd like the numbers to be at least 10 to show ovulation and 12-15 to have a healthy pregnancy. As you can see, my 7.4 is not in either of those categories HOWEVER, they say you can still ovulate with lower numbers and even concieve, you would just have to take extra prog. for support.

That's all I got for now!! Praying that your body responds AWESOMELY to hcg!! ;)
