I was able to get away with taking the pill form of the hormone with my daughter, but with my son I had to get a shot in the butt, every morning. (I generally joke that's he's been a pain in the butt since very beginning.) Without I always ended up losing the pregnancies. I have a friend that's lost 4 pregnancies, she pregnant again (and seeing a new doctor) and she has to be on shots too. Some doctors don't like to give you the extra hormones while your pregnant. And give you excuses like...Your allergic to dairy (but only when your pregnant)...Something must have been wrong with the baby(all 4 times). But the truth is sometimes your hormones just aren't where they are suppose to be and need a little extra boost..

I had to take progesterone with my son. It was prometrium. NOw, I'm pregnant again and I'm also taking the same thing. I'm so nervous about it. With my last pregnancy they monitored my progesterone level ALOT, and with this one I have only been tested once. I'm so nervous and hope everything is okay.
