My levels have been great and I need to record them so I remember next time and I don't spend hours googling HCG and progesterone levels to make sure I am on track.
I guess I have to look at the positives about the first 15 weeks. I usually lose about 10 pounds. My grandmother was worried sick about me losing weight and I told her, "Oh don't worry, I make it up the last half."
At 5 weeks: HCG: 101 Prog: 47 (I have never been in this range)
At 7 weeks: HCG: 13,000 Prog: 96 (Holy Smokes!)
At 9 weeks: HCG: 103,000 Prog: 27 (Back on the progesterone. I drop every time so I am not worried.)
At 10 weeks: HCG: 101,700 Prog: 63 My HCG dropped which caused me to panic.
The nurse reassured me that it is completely normal and tends to level off and even drop at this stage. I still didn't like it. Our doctor called to confirm it was completely normal. I am grateful he understands how woman think and overreact. We went to Kansas City for a conference and had the chance to visit my grandmother. I went with the intention of getting a picture of the kids with her and I some how only got a picture of myself with the kids. I love that.
