Ghost....Progestrone & Bloating.. Should I be concerned.

Postby Alwaysangel » Sat Aug 04, 2012 10:08 am

I am 4w6d pregnant and for the past week and a half or so I have been really bloated ( it looks like I am further along than I am). I have been taking poi since the retrevial and doing fine until after the transfer. I had slight bloating after the ER but noting like I am now. I have been taking 1 cc of poi, my first beta a week ago showed p4 ( progestrone) as 166 then two days later 211. The dose was cut down to .5. 2 days later it was 218. I know they wan anything over 20. This is my 6th ET and I've never had p4 over 40! I. Assuming this is why I am sooo bloated!!! Should I tell re? Is this bad? I'm not in pain or anything just lovenox is harder to give since I'm so stretched and I'm just trying to cover the belly up so nobody thinks im 3-4 months pregnant already! How can it be so high?

1. Always tell your doctor everything.
2. Progesterone does not really cause bloating like that, but is probably a good indicator of what is causing it. It very often means there are many active follicles making progesterone and also causing OHSS. Follicles release many hormones. Your RE will know this and will know what to do about it.
