My name's Devon. This is my 3rd pregnancy, I've had two losses (Nov'02 & July'03). So of course I am terrified!!!!!!!!! I'm assuming that is fairly normal. Anyway, I had an ultrasound on the 8th. My EDD is December 2 (Dr. said Nov. 12 before the u/s; I think Thanksgiving Day) We saw a baby, a hearbeat (i know that said 122, I assume that was the rate?), and I was overjoyed. (My first loss was a blighted ovum, and my second was at 8 weeks, I never saw an utlra sound on the second one.) On the same day that I had my u/s, the dr. did blood work. She called this week and said that my HCG level was great and that my progestrone level was in the normal range, but low. She consulted with another dr. and then prescribed Prometrium (form of progestorone). What I was wondering, has anyone else been prescribed this and did it help? I've read stuff about it, but nothing is really clear. Anything along the topic of progestrone will be appreciated!
In fact anything will be appreciated. I'm scared out of my mind, and I'm also so very excited. Everyone has now been told (there are no secrets with our family) and they are happy, but no one seems to get that although I am very very happy, I am terrified of going through all of that again. Added to the stress of worrying is that I will finally (after 10 years of trying off and on) graduate college in May with an accounting degree, and my professors are piling on the work and I'm soooooo drained and the morning sickness is 24/7.
Sorry this is so long, but I just need to let it all out to someone who just might understand some of what I feel. No one around here does, and my hubby tries but he just doesn't get it.....if he did the laundry and dishes would be done.
Good Luck To Everyone Here! My Prayers are with you!
