My first US and appointment! (XP)

I posted this in April but wanted to update the lovely ladies here too! Biggrin

I'm back from my ultrasound and appointment. Boy was I nervous! I had to go all by myself today and I hate getting ultrasounds because I seem to only get bad news when I get them. I got to see a tiny little gestational sac measuring around 4 weeks. I hope things continue to grow. My next u/s is in 2 weeks so hopefully I'll get to see a little heartbeat. Though, I probably won't really relax until 1st trimester is over. I've seen heartbeats with both of my previous pregnancies and well...we know how those turned out. BUT! Today is a good day so I'm going to focus on that and take it one day at a time. Biggrin

My progesterone was 19.1 on Wednesday and my OB said it was borderline. She likes to see it over 20 and she thought that it probably has gone up since then but she has me on progesterone supplements just in case! Biggrin I need all the help I can get!

Here is a little pic....not a whole lot to see! lol

Glad your appt. Went well! Btw, my progesterone at 6 weeks was exactly 20 and my dr. said that was Great. Strange the difference in opinion? My dr. told me anything over 10 was good.

Thank you ladies! Your kind words are very much appreciated! Biggrin

Amanda, I've also read that anything above 10 is good as well. I've actually heard 10, 15 and 20...lol...I'm sure every doctor will tell you something different! Wink

I agree about the preogesterone. My doc likes it around 12 or above. In fact with my first dd it was only 13 and 12 and I was never on the supplements.

Hmmm...Maybe my doc just wanted to make me feel better by putting me on supplements? :dontknow:

Sounds like overall things are looking good. Hopefully your doc is just being overly liberal with the supplements and there is no reason to worry.
