Scared: 4 pregnancies with 1 live birth and now on 5th pregnancy
by Chrystie Simons
Hi I had no idea after reading this site how progesterone places a valuable role in pregnancy. After the third m/c March 2011 I had loads of test done (including my husband) all came back for him okay but for me I have Lupus Anticoagulant Antibody and low progesterone. My doctor said once I fall pregnant again I have to take 4500 units daily of Tinzaparine and 200mg Cyclogest Progesterone (depositories) taken daily. I am already taking 81mg baby aspirins and prenatal.
Here is my history:
(Oct.22/11) CD15 I did the IUI.
(Oct.23/11) CD16 (I temped, used opk’s and logged every morning).
(Oct.25/11) CD18 started 200mg Cyclogest Progesterone
(Nov.1/11) CD 25/dpo9 used 10milu pregnancy test w/first morning urine - saw very very light line for a positive test.
(Nov.2/11) CD 26/dpo10 hcg was 6.43 – started the Tinzaparine today. I now take them along with Progesterone, baby aspirins and prenatal at 7:30am every morning.
(Nov.4/11) CD 28/dpo12 hcg was 18.60
(Nov.10/11) CD 34/dpo18 NO PERIOD CAME ON hcg was 206.69
(Nov.17/11) CD 41/dpo25 hcg was 423.79 and Progesterone was 10.4.
(Nov.24/11) CD 48/dpo32 waiting for results for hcg and progesterone I will results today.
What scares me is that my doctor wants me to have a D&C done already!! He says because of my past history this pregnancy is doomed…but my past history I spotted red the whole time from the beginning and this time around I have not spotted at all. I have never been on these extra medications and I only have this light beige discharge and it started after taken the progesterone depositories. Calculated from my ovulated dated I am 6wk 3days pregnant TODAY. He refuse to do a ultrasound because he said he wouldn’t see anything (but I’ve have read others receiving one from 4wks and it shows up on the ultrasound; I live in Bermuda so not sure if our technologies are OLDER then the USA machines).
I am lost and don’t know what to do…any suggestions?? I also read that some ladies start out slow but end of with a successful pregnancy and they also had lots of m/c too before they fall pregnant…please give any suggestions or advise??
