I was really thin then again, this last pregnancy I had no progesterone issue and was at a normal (but heavier weight for me) please check into it or take the cream stat just to be safe.

this time I'm on progesterone and a baby aspirin...and so far so good
Yes I am on Prometrium 100mg and one baby aspirin a day. I have never had to take anything with any of the other 5. But after 3 mc in a row I asked my doc to prescribe me some progesterone. She isn't a big believer in it but she did it. The ironic this is she didn't even test my level to see. I am still nursing my 18 month old so I suspect between that and me being 41 it's wreaking havoc with my progesterone. It was also suggested that I take the low dose aspirin to make implantation more successful. So we will see. Thanks so much for being so sweet and looking out for my little one.

That is just so beautiful and clever!! I would love to hear what the reactions to it were!

AFM I am a mom of 5 with this being the 6th. Other than the 3 back to back MC I have had 1 other and that was right before I got pregnant with DD2. We had 4 children then a V. 7 yrs later we had the V reversed and 3 months later had our sticky bean ( after the 1st mc). This will be our 2nd VR baby. I am taking each day as it comes and being grateful for each one. I have been trying not to temp or test but I broke down today and tested again. I have been so VERY crampy I needed to see. I can't tell you how overwhelmed I was by joy to see the test darken so quickly and so deeply. I was so scared I would see a faint line. At that moment I embraced this pregnancy. I am trying to trust the Lord but as I am only human it is tough not to worry and fret. I so needed this thread and it came at a moment when I was feeling weakest! Thank you so very much. Looking forward to meeting all of you and enjoying your journeys to your rainbows!
