4 weeks + 6 days

I have my beta numbers from earlier this morning:

12dpo hcg - 28, progesterone 15
17dpo hcg - 286, progesterone 30.4
20dpo hcg - 1092, progesterone 38

We are still pregnant! Again, at least for today. But that's as far ahead as I can get.. one day at a time.

I'm a little concerned about progesterone levels not being higher, but I have to remember this is a purely artificial programmed cycle (HRT FET) .. but if they were higher, I'd breathe a little easier.

Always something to worry about, right?

For now... I'm pregnant right now, and I have seemingly average numbers. I can't ask for anything more than that!

Just keep breathing...

Great job so far Olaf- keep it up!

I wouldn't worry about your progesterone numbers. My clinic wants to see at least 15 so you are over double that right now. And you are right- it was an FET so you are having to artificially supplement for progesterone.

I saw the news on Instagram, but I'm just now catching up on your blog. I know it sucked to wait and wait and wait and wonder, but it was fun to read the last several posts and see you go from devastation to hope! Come on Olaf, stay strong!
