Progesterone and spotting

Sheila - posted on 05/08/2014 ( 3 moms have responded )




I am 6 1/2 weeks pregnant after a miscarriage 3 months ago. The first pregnancy, I started to miscarry after light spotting and hearing the heatbeat at the ER. It happened about a week later, a full miscarriage followed by a DNC at around 7 weeks.
Now this pregnancy I had no complication up until yesterday. Yesterday I had a spot of blood followed by a pinkish wiping. My doctor took me in right away and the baby looked great, heartbeat and hanging out. My doc put me on progesterone supposotories and praying I don't have the same issues as before. Did anyone have success with progesterone and a similar situation?
I am trying not to drive myself nuts but hard bc my first experience.

OK hun first, try to keep calm! This is my very first pregnancy & I'm 32 weeks with a little boy. At close to 7 weeks I had spotting that concerned me, it was brown-ish in color and lasted for about 3 days before I decided to take a trip to the ER. It wound up being old blood from a ruptured corpus luteal cyst. Everything was fine with the baby! About a week later my ob-gyn discovered my progesterone levels were to low which would result in a miscarriage, I started my pills at either my 8th or 9th week & had to stay on them until I was 13 weeks (at that point your placenta can produce enough of its own progesterone.) But trust me I was freaking out, I never knew anything about a progesterone pill & never knew anyone that had to take them. But they brought my levels up just fine and when I stopped them everything was just fine and levels remained high! Just make sure you take them how you're told to (I had to take one a night, towards the end I accidentally skipped a night or two) & you & your baby will be just fine. (S/n- when your freaking out it's ok to ask for advice from others but trust your dr. and your instincts bc a lot of post online are horror stories that will freak you out more, believe me!)

I took progesterone during the first trimester and now I have a healthy newborn. The progesterone is very important - trust you dr. I hope you will have a strong healthy baby!
