I found out I was pregnant last week, I cannot remember the

Resolved Question:

Hi, I found out I was pregnant last week, I cannot remember the date of my last period but it was on or around 25th-26th May. I went to the early pregnancy unit today and the nurse took bloods and I have a vaginal ultrasound. They said they saw something but it was exceptionally small and too early to tell. She has called to say my HCG is 912 and my Progesterone is 5. I have read that my progesterone should be higher? Please can you shed some light on this information. I am worried I am having a failed pregnancy

No, it was a nurse who saw me. She hasn't even offered anything. What should I do?

call your GP and ask if progesterone is appropriate

they can give it to you

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Ok.
I was just reading my ultrasound notes and it says they found a possible pseudo sac or early gestation sac.
When will they know for sure what it is?
