    Progesterone???

    So when did everyones RE cut out the progesterone? I was on 2cc's. Two weeks ago (7 w) I was lowered to 1 cc and by 8 w my levels were too low. So they lowered me to 1/2 cc and 3 prometrium (this was added) a day. Now I am 9 weeks and the prometrium is not fun!!! It makes me feel like I have been drinking?!?! The "buzz" lasts for about 30 minutes but it still stinks. I know with my triplets I was off PIO by 7 weeks and on crinone (gel suppository) until 12 weeks. But my levels were much higher because I was pg with triplets. Now my levels are lower and taking a while to work "on their own". KWIM??? I'm just curious, I have never been pg with just 1 baby so this is a new world for me. I have had no problems at all so far just my progesterone levels going up and down (alittle to low for my liking). Thank ladies on any info you can give me!!

    I was on prog suppositories for 3x a day through the start of my 9th week. I didn't have any at all during my first pregnancy. I'm glad to be done with them.

    I am on progesterone for another 2 weeks I think. I will be on till 12 weeks, can't wait to stop them, messy. OB just put me on to be safe since my twin pg was with prog too. He never did check my level though.

    At my 2nd beta (9dp6dt or 3w5d), my P4 level was 23,000. I had my 3rd beta 4 days later, & while I didn't ever hear what my P4 level was at that point, my RE told me I could stop the PIO shots. He said obviously my body was producing enough on its own & I no longer needed the supplements. I was a little nervous about going off of them. But I figured he knew what he was doing!
