Progesterone definitely fluctuates!! I had low progesterone with both my pregnancies (sometimes under 10!) and have two very healthy girls now. 

Most doctors do like to see a level above 15 though, so it’s a little surprising he/she didn’t suggest suppositories.  Although latest research says low progesterone is not a cause of miscarriage, so supplementing won’t necessarily do anything!

Conrgratulations and hope your levels continue to go up next week!!

Weddingobsessed :  I had a lot of bloodwork done in the beginning weeks l, my progesterone fluctuated SO much. I think the lowest they got was 12…I now have a healthy baby boy! My doctor was also not concerned if the number wasn’t below 10.

I’m also surprised that your doctor wasn’t concerned.  Typically it rises with pregnancy, they like it 15+.  I would press for another test sooner if you are worried.

OMG congrats! I’ll be crossing everything this is a nice sticky bean for you. Also props on making another baby with two 9-month-olds, lol!! Do you have a scan scheduled? Or another beta?
