Progesterone supplement ? and appt. update....
Fri, 07-01-2011 - 8:20pm

I went to the dr today. The first thing she did was an ultrasound. With my last m/c, the baby had implanted low and it wasn't attached very well causing my m/c. Today we saw the gestational sac and it implanted up in the top of my uterus and the uterine lining was thick so she thinks things will be fine this time. My levels were always really good with my last pregnancy, even in the end when the baby was literally hanging on by a thread of the placenta, she still was growing right on track, which was amazing to me. They also did some bloodwork and she put me on progesterone pills, just as a safety measure. I've never been on progesterone. What are the side effects? She said it makes you sleepy and nauseous. That doesn't sound fun! My next appt. is July 21st! I can't wait! I am feeling better about the pregnancy now. My husband is ready to tell the world but l keep telling him I want to keep it secret until I go into labor ; )

I'm glad the u/s went well and your baby is nice and snug in your lush lining! I did progesterone suppositories for the first 12 weeks and noticed a bit more constipation, although that has been an ongoing issue for me the entire pg. I truly didn't notice anything dramatic in terms of s/e, but I'm not sure if there's a difference in method of delivery. Congrats again!

Yay for good appointment!!! Congratulations!

I had the progesterone suppositories as well for the first 12 weeks with my last pregnancy. I had hideous morning sickness but that may or may not be related at all. Other than that it was just inconvenient :)

I was on prog suppositories and this pg was the worst one I've had as far as m/s goes. I was very sick all day long. I don't know if it was natural for my body or if the prog made it worse. My m/s with dd was much worse than with ds also. I'm so glad your u/s went well!

congrats on a good implantation! I was on progesterone until 12 weeks as well. constipation is really the only thing I noticed. Good luck!

I totally wanted to keep it a secret until labor as well, but dh spilled the day of the darned bfp - super early I might add.
