Hormone Levels during pregnancy

Dr. Jacobs,

I was wondering if you could give me some insight on what is a normal range for progesterone and estrogen levels during pregnancy. I did IVF last month and therefore I had to take estrace and progesterone injections starting two days after the retrieval. I have been off the estrace for about 12 days because my levels were so high but I am still on the progesterone injections, half CC per night. My levels this week were: progesterone 300 (down from 720 the previous week) and estrogen 4,100 (down from 4, 400 the previous week). What do these levels mean and are they good for the pregnancy (6 weeks tomorrow) and do they indicate anything about twins?

Thanks for all your help.

MJ

PS~ I see that you are practicing in the Frisco area, do you have any recommendations for an OB/GYN in the Amarillo area?

I do not follow estrogen levels during pregnancy. If progesterone is at least 20 ng/ml, I am happy.
Congratulations.
