Well I guess my Midwife was going over all my numbers from my last pregnancy and when I miscarried my hCG levels were super high but my progesterone was like 6, so she decided to put me on daily progesterone injections till I hit 12 weeks just in case that is why I miscarried last time.

Yay injections! It's awesome that your MW is being proactive. I'm on daily heparin and not only are the needles huge but it burns. I feel your pain but like you said if it keeps you pregnant! is there a reason she put you on injections instead of the suppositories or pills? I'm just wondering because I'm on the suppositories and don't know what the difference is, is it just preference?

That's good that your MW is being proactive. I'm on twice daily progesterone suppositories. I hope your injections help!

She said that the injections absorb more effectively? So not sure.. It sucks though because my insurance won't cover the injections so it's about $200 a month, but I only have to do it till 12 weeks so only a couple months. They burn and I've noticed today that the site is super sore.. I couldn't even lay on that side last night... Oh well! Gotta do it!!
