So I got my numbers back from my blood work today. My HcG level was 204, which is within normal range for 4 weeks. From what I've read online, it should be between 5-400. My midwife did think my Progesterone levels were dangerously low though. So I am now on 100mg of Prometrium (a synthetic progesterone) three times a day. I have to be on this until 8 weeks, then I have to take it as a vaginal suppository. I need to double check with them how many times a day I need to do that part. The suppositories I'll have to do until 13 weeks. So I'm on this regimen until at least January 11, 2011.
Other than that, I feel ok. I had some cramping and I've had some spotting, but nothing that I'm really worrying about. Literally all brown spotting. I haven't really had any nausea or anything. I have been getting some pretty bad headaches though. I had one yesterday and one today. I think they are either sinus or caffeine related. Neither is really good because I can't do much about them. Sinus headache, I can use steam/humidifier... For the caffeine thing, I just have to deal with it while I try to lower my caffeine intake. I can take Tylenol, but I don't want to take much if I can help it.
I go for another blood test tomorrow. Hopefully the results will be good. I need my HcG to be at least 408 (hopefully it's more than that) and I am hoping my progesterone level at least doesn't drop. I think I'm going to take 4 pills before my test tomorrow. So I'm just hoping and praying that it all comes back at least ok.
