2 chemical pregnancy in 2 months.. not enough cream??
I've decided that I need to become my own doctor or researcher, so here I am. A little background info.
I have a 4 year old son that we conceived on the first try. Had a super easy pregnancy and delivery with him. Just recently hubby and I decided to have another baby. We got pregnant on the first try again. I miscarried at 4 weeks and 4 days.
My doctors said it was probably a chromosome thing and said they would not do any test until a 3rd one happens. Geez thanks.
I began to research and then put myself on a special regimen of 80 mg of progesterone cream a day starting at 3 days past ovulation, 1 lose dose aspirin, and complete prenatal supplements. I got pregnant two weeks after the chemical pregnancy. I started having early upper back aches (just like with my first miscarriage) and had my dr. do an hcg test at 4 week and 3 days. My levels doubled and she assured me everything was fine. I knew something was wrong. Those upper back aches/shoulder blade pain was suspect. Sadly I lost that one at 6 weeks.
So here I am. My question is, do you think the 80 mg of progesterone cream was too low?? I got that dosage off Dr. John Lee's website. I started off with 20 mg after ovulation and gradually increased it to 80. I've always felt like I had low progesterone levels since having my son, but never did anything about it or have it tested.
My second miscarriage at 6 weeks was painless. I didn't have any symptoms like I had with my first one. I just started bleeding with no cramps or back aches. Very weird. Was this because of the progesterone? Do you think getting pregnant again right after that first miscarriage was too much on my body?
We still plan to try again, but in a few more months. I clearly do not have a problem with getting pregnant quickly it's just keeping it.
