Congrats!!! What wonderful news. If it were me, I'd get on a progesterone supplement ASAP! I don't like the fact that your progesterone is so low and that it has dropped. That concerns me more than the HCG numbers to be honest. Good luck, I'm keeping everything crossed for you!!!

I'm already on vaginal progesterone - 100mg twice a day, vaginally. Just waiting for my third beta results, but I think I'm out.

My test lines are not getting darker; I took a first response and dollar tree this morning and they were positive. Took a digital as soon as I came back from the RE; it now says not pregnant (a few days ago, it was pregnant 1-2 weeks). It could be just diluted urine, but I would think by this point it should be high enough to at least register pregnant regardless of weeks. So, I'm being cautiously optimistic, but trying to prepare mentally / emotionally for bad news. My back is aching and I'm having slight cramping, but no bleeding. Feeling pretty sad.

I am sorry that you are going thru such a difficult time of getting and staying pregnant. I agree with your assessment that this pregnancy is not viable. :bighug: Hang in there!

:bighug: Oh Christa, I'm so sorry!:bighug:

I think you've POAS more in the last few days than I have in my life. It was a lot easier to not have any hope unless CD29 (or its equivalent) came & went so I never tested any earlier than that. I just couldn't handle knowing about every single conception that didn't stick around. Sad

Thanks Ladies:

I appreciate the support. My labs came back and confirmed what my heart already knew. This is sadly going to be miscarriage #3. Both progesterone and hcg dropped.
