I have 2 children. Both were conceived with no problem and no problems during pregnancy whatsoever! When my second child was 15 months (me - 31yrs. old) I had my first miscarriage @ 8wks. Within 4yrs I had 5 miscarriages. Three were at 7-8wks along, one was at 2.5 wk and the last one was 11 wks. After the 1st misc. I got on progesterone. First time I used suppositories, then I used cream. All were natural progesterone not the regular pharmacy synthetic stuff. I got it from a compounding pharmacy. My thyroid levels were "normal" so I went to a specialist and he put me on Armour thyroid. My levels were great and so we got pregnant again. ( I never have a problem conceiving just keeping the pregnancy full term) This time taking 120mg of progesterone. I was horribly nauseous the whole time. Had severe lower back pain in first 2-3 wks of preg. At 9.5 wks I had ultrasound and they saw sac but no baby. They repeated the ultrasound 1 week later and still saw no baby. But I was still horribly nauseous. They told me I had a blyted ovum. I stopped taking the progesterone. I finally miscarried @ 11 wks. I think the progesterone I was on kept my body thinking there was a baby still there. I am preg again 2.5 wks along. I am hesitant to take progesterone this time since it artificially prolonged my "pregnancy" last time making me feel horrible. I stopped taking the Armour thyroid on my own since it didn't prevent my misc. last time. But I am taking iodine, Dulse, Cod liver oil, Bernard Jensens Brewers Yeast, Folic, Vit.E, Standard Process Utrophin & Nuerotrophin. I felt light cramps twice yesterday. My o.b. doesn't know how to help me & said everything looks normal. Should I be on progesterone? And if so, how much?
