    Hi ladies,
    Having abit of a breakdown. Had bloods done today.
    Progesterone came out at 48.37 nmol.
    Hcg was 2834.

    This is low for both at 5 weeks right? X

    Dr said nhs will not do progesterone and hcg level testing. I said I had a private blood test and just wanted to see if it was going up. She said no. There's no point if I'm going to miscarry the tests won't help. But if progesterone stops going up i can have supplements or something?!

    Sounds like your docs aren't very helpful. What about recurrent miscarriage clinic? What have they said?

    I think all sounds good so far though lovely. Try to stay positive xxxxx
