I have a history of pre term deliveries. I am currently pregnant with my 4th child, but only have one living.
I delivered my daughter Emily at 19 weeks. She didn't survive. 6 months later, I was pregnant again. That baby also passed away. I now have a 17 month old son named Joshua, but I went into labor with him at 22 weeks. With this baby, whose name is Madelyn, I started labor around 16 weeks. The doctor took me off work and instead of doing a cerclage has put me on progesterone shots weekly. He said it will help keep my cervix from thinning any further.
I am just looking for information about this shot, the only problem is I forgot what the complete name of it is. I really want to know what this shot is supposed to do. Because if it works like he says, then he will truly be saving Maddie!
