So when I was at the doctor yesterday, he ran my progesterone as my first blood test showed it at 9.9 and it should be at least 10. He called today to tell me its gone down a bit to like 8.7. He has prescribed me prometrium, which I’ll start tonight. Everything I’ve googled has been bad and aweful. Anyone have this issue? Take supplements? Delivered a healthy baby? I’m scared sh*tless.

I am TTC right now and have had to take Prometrium. It’s a good thing they caught it now. You need to have a level above 10 to sustain the pregnancy and the Prometrium will get you there. Try not to stress about it (I know, easier said than done!)
Like @alishadhs4 said, stay away from google! There is so much information out there that can be skewed and you wouldn’t know it. Just talk to your doctor or the nurses because they will give you the information that is right for you.

@sweetkate: I know you need it to sustain the pregnancy – I’m just scared it too late! I’m kinda pissed the doctor who reviewed my labs didn’t think it was an issue a week ago. Its only because I got a copy of the results and brought it up when I happened to come in yesterday that it even came up to re-test.
Trying to stay positive but its hard and all these hormones are making me SO emotional about everything! And yes, I need to stay off google!
