    Yet another one here...I took Progesterone suppositories and injections status-post In-Vitro Fertilization. My 12-year-old triplet daughters are perfect! (well, except for the fact that they leave their clothes on the floor, call each other names, forget drinks in the living room.....)

    I had Endometriosis prior to becoming pregnant with my first born (13 years ago). I too started spotting when I became pregnant. I was given a shot of progesterone to make sure the baby would stay implanted after the viewing of the ultasound.

    My son is fine; Iwas happy to have a healthy child.

    I like the advice to investigate on the internet about the actual progesterone infomation.

    God be with you through this blessed event. Enjoy this time; It was the happiest time of my life.

    hey congrats,

    I don't want to be a party-pooper, but........
    I know a lot of women who took progesteron and everything went well!!
    On the other hand (depending on the HCG-levels and ultrasound-findings), I don't believe in prolonging pregnancy in this early stages (6weeks ++), because Nature often knows better as we human beings.

    please don't be offended, this is my experience, not only as a RN in Neonatology, but also as a woman and as a friend.

    Hope everyting turns out right for you and will pray for you and your unborn child, that always helps, take care, Renee
