Trying not to Freak Out

I had to go in to the doctor's office today--Mr. X is out of town and I needed a progesterone injection. While I was there, I found out that my progesterone level drawn last week was 30. Two weeks earlier, it had been 37.2. At 12 weeks, 30 is considered to be "high zone 2" on the PPVI charts, so it's below average, but not way below average. The injection protocol stays the same, so that's OK. I'm just a little concerned that it dropped. I'm telling myself that it's still an OK number, we saw a great ultrasound the day after the blood draw, and that maybe all the supplementation might cause more fluctuation in the levels than usual. Anyway, if any of you know anything about this, please let me know! I'm going to disconnect myself from Dr. G.o.o.g.l.e now to save my sanity and so that I can walk the dog and use my grocery coupons while the sales are still on!

As long as your doctor isn't concerned, it sounds good to me! I'm sure it is fine. I've been praying for you!

I don't know anything about it, but Jen has a really good point. I'm about to go to adoration, so I will pray for you there!

You are at a point where the embryo takes over the prog. production so that would best explain the dip. That is why dr give prog suppl until 12-18 weeks...the baby takes over at that point. You may be in transistion. I am going to pray anyway(I am like that)
