Can be ok,: Implantation of the fertilized egg can cause this, if increases and or cramping, you should let your doctor know.

No: Your Progesterone is low because you are very early in your pregnancy, unless you have had repetitive pregnancy losses.

Yes: That's an appropriate rise in hcg level. It is way too early to see anything on ultrasound, but that is an appropriate rise.

May be: An HCG level of less than 5 is non-pregnant state. Above 25 indicates pregnancy. Between 5 and 25 needs to be repeated in 3-4 days.
