If you are/were pregnant with multiples... brodyzmom Due December 18 (girl); 1 child; 3 angel babies; Huntsville, Alabama 2792 posts

What were your early progesterone levels like? I did an IUI with hyperovulation and my 12 dpiui results were HCG: 89, Progesterone: 101.5. Everything I've found online with progesterone levels like that points to multiples (or a molar pregnancy - but I won't even think about that!). Just curious.

Mine is still only 18, and I am 11 weeks and I've been on progesterone suppositories since 6 weeks lol. I haven't ever heard high progesterone indicating multiples, but I have heard HCG does.

I'm still a couple weeks out for my US. :? I had only ever heard of high HCG indicating multiples, too, but according to the "all-knowing" google... Anway, my HCG was on the higher end too (not multiples high, but that can vary a lot too). Guess I'll wait and see...

I've also been on suppositories. (200 mg at night) The past few days it seems like I'm not absorbing it AT ALL though, like almost all of it is coming back out. I think my body is so full of progesterone it's screaming "NO MORE", lol. Also, I currently have OHSS which is inflating the progesterone some too. Either way, at least this baby should stick!

I read that at the beginning of this pregnancy. My progesterone levels were not as high as yours though. They were 45.3 at 11dpo and my hcg was 354. My progesterone levels were never tested after that though, so I am not sure what they went up to. My next hcg had dropped by 13dpo, but then went back up. It was confirmed at 7 weeks that I had been pregnant with twins. One had stopped developing though. It later was absorbed.

Good luck to you though :) Sticky dust!!

Oh and I was on 200mg Prometrium inserted vaginally. Starting from the day after O until I was 13 weeks.

Thank you! And congrats on your healthy pregnancy! I remember somewhat stalking the TTC boards about the time you got your BFP. :)

I texted my sis-in-law (a pharmacist) and asked her... She said the extra mucous that the we're producing now is likely decreasing some of the absorption, basically, that its having a difficult time penetrating all that gunk. Lol

Interesting. I've been on it for quite awhile and mine still hasn't went over 15 :? My progesterone was plummeting though. It was down to a 6 before they prescribed the suppositories.

Has everything been good since then? Isn't it funny - if mine were on the low end, I'd be worried about that. Since it's high, I'm worried that means something. Ugh.

It seems to be ok. I don't go back until the 18th, but I try not to worry, I just had a miscarriage end of November.

I had one in July, but it was a blighted ovum, not due to progesterone issues. I'm praying that was my one chromosomal freakage and this baby is perfect.
