So far, so good! I’m still feeling crampy but from what I’ve read, that doesn’t necessarily mean anything is wrong. Spotting and cramping would be bad. I don’t know how long I can expect the cramping to last so if anyone has an idea, drop it on me! I’ve been drinking a TON of water, which is supposed to help. I don’t know if it lessens the cramps or if I always have to pee so badly I can’t pay attention to anything else.
I remembered a few days ago, when I was on the phone with my best friend K, that my OB had suggested way back in July that the next time we got pregnant, that he wanted to put me on progesterone. Progesterone supplements during a high risk pregnancy prevents the uterine layer from shedding (which, of course, would mean miscarriage). I was expecting pills but it’s actually a gel… suppository. You have to put it… in. Not what I expected. It’s not bad though. Much better than a regular tampon. The side effects are supposed to include moodiness (can’t be worse than clomid), headaches (I already get those), and nausea (at almost 5 weeks, that is to be expected). I have to take it through the end of the first trimester.
We’re thrilled my doctor is willing to give it to me after only 1 miscarriage instead of the typical 3. We are also very happy we have health insurance. The no insurance price listed on the prescription was $524.00!
