Progesterone saved me from losing my baby

My husband and I were trying very hard to have a baby. We did everything we knew how to do to enhance our chances. This was in the late 60"s.
After so much investment, we sort of gave up. Then I missed a period and after 2 weeks, which was very unusual for me to go that long without a period. I was called on the phone. On the other end of the phone, I heard, "Mrs. Crawford,? Your're pregnant!" I was dumbfoundede! Scared and frightened. I told her that I had began bleeding as if having a period and she instructed me to get to the doctor ASAP!
To make a long story short, the doctor instructed me to let him give me progesterone shots. He said it was the only way to save the baby. I said, "Let's do it".
With progesterone shots and 4 months, practically on my back... I came out of the iffy pregnancy into the definate pregnancy.
She's 42, beautiful, talented, skilled, smart and she's God's and my creations! Nothing better ever happened to me.
