okay...so i'm not complaining "tooooooo" much about it as so far minimul preterm labor symptoms (my 1st ds was born around 33 weeks, 2nd ds tried to be premature MULTIPLE times and i was on 17p then too but made it to full term) and so far i only have a shortening cervix (went from 4.5cm around 18 weeks to 3.0 currently) but...

i'm not sure if this is side effects from the shot, just regular pregnancy side effects/symptoms,

I've been taking the shots for 5 weeks now.

I've been on the shots for 7 weeks and haven't noticed any s/e that I would attribute to the shot specifically. (I was put on it because of the multiple gestation, so since this is my first pregnancy I don't have a Hx of PTL.) I do have annoying acne on my face but I've always had it...what's become out of control is the acne on my back and shoulders. Again, not sure if this is from the shot or just crazy hormones, but it sucks. The site of the shot does sometimes hurt or itch, but that's to be expected. I go in for bi-weekly cervix checks so I'll find out on Thursday how that's going. My cervix is the one thing that worries me...
