Hmm, I've never heard of that, but it makes sense. I think that's the hormone that keeps the lining in tact during the first trimester. I'm sorry it makes you sick, that bites. Maybe try getting Sea Bands to wear to help? I haven't gotten them yet, but my doctor and other pregnant women have sworn by them.

I'm not on it this PG but I was on it for two previous one's . It's not fun and it TOTALLY wiped me out.

I felt like I was crabby and in a daze on it.

I've never been on progesterone, but I have a good friend who miscarries if she isn't on it. She had it happen twice, but has had two successful pregnancies since then, using the progesterone. I didn't realize it could start up after previous pregnancies without progesterone issues, though - I thought some ladies' bodies just didn't produce enough during pregnancy... ever.

I'm wearing mine practically 24/7. I think I can tell a difference with my m/s, but I'm not totally sure. I've kept them on just in case, though. :)

I am on Crinone 1x per day. I was on prometrium when I was pregnant with my DS and crinone with my DD so this is my second time using crinone. I do feel that it magnifies some of my symptoms, but it's only for the duration of the 1st trimester and I am more than willing to go through this if it means a healthy pregnancy and healthy baby in the end :)

I'm on citrone once a day. I'm not sure if it's magnifying my symptoms or not! My last successful pregnancy was almost 11 years ago so I'm not sure my memories are accurate lol. I feel like I have more headaches maybe, but I also don't have morning sickness (yet?) this time around!
