    Progesterone Levels

    Does anyone have any information about progesterone levels...
    I just had my blood drawn the other day on day 20 and it was above 40. I am just wondering what everyone elses levels were that got a positive pregnancy test.

    Any help would be great!

    At my first beta (CD25 & 13DPO), my pro was 30. My RE likes to see it above 20 during pregnancy. 40 sounds like a great # to me!

    thanks for the encouragment. i am hoping that its a positive in the right direction. if you do not mind me asking, were you pregnant?
    bethann88 replied to jon3brn's response:
    It turns out I was pregnant. I'm currently 37wks into that pregnancy. Keep in mind that pro levels alone aren't a great indicator on if you could be pregnant, though. I once had a CD21 progesterone test that came back at 35 and I ended up not to being preggo at that time. But it does show that you did O, so that's a good thing.

    Wishing you lots of luck and I hope you'll soon see that BFP!!

    thanks. the closer I get to the testing day, that I think that I am not. Everyone I talk to, say they had a feeling or a feeling came over them that let them know that something was different. I dont feel different. I think I am reading too much into my symptoms. but ive been taking my temp in the morning and this morning it was 97.2 which was dropped from 97.7 and up which is what it has been the past few days. So, again I think it didnt take. So I am wanting to just drink a couple bottles of wine and drown in my sorrows and forget the blood test.

    but my DH wants to continue to stay positive till we get the blood results on Saturday. so I too am trying to stay positive but I just feel like its all for not. just needed to vent a little.

    I know that a lot of people have the feeling that something is different, but I never did. When my RE's office called me with the results of my blood test, I was so surprised, I nearly fainted. Then, it turned out that we're having twins.

    I was extremely upset and tense during this last 2ww. I seriously needed a valium or something. When do you test?
    s_deyo10 replied to jon3brn's response:
    I never had a feeling either! I'm 9wks3days right now, my hubby and I had been trying for 6 months to get preg and I didn't think it "took" this time and the only reason I tested was a friend of mine wanted to go out for a drink! So glad I did! Hoping for the best for you:)
