Help! Just found out I'm pregnant, and low progesterone, but cannot afford the meds!

On Wed, I had a quant done with a level of 7. And today (4 hours shy of the 48 hour mark) my levels are 28 which is great! My progesterone levels are low (according to the midwife) and she ordered crinone gel, but when I went to pick it up, they said they'd have to order it, and it will cost me $740!!! I don't have that kind of money. I called my MD who is also a OB, and the nurse is letting her know of my situation, but they said they don't like to deal with prenatal patients unless they are their own. I tried to explain to them that the midwife I go through was already closed for the weekend, and didn't want to lose this pregnancy as I already lost one several months ago. So, now I'm waiting to see if they will help me, and meanwhile, I'm freaking out.

I don't know what progesterone levels indicate other than if they are low, I can have a MC. What can I do?
Hi! I'm a mama of 5 amazing beautiful children! 3 boys, 2 girls.
