After two miscarriages
I had a child when I was 19. He is now 19 himself. Had no problems with him, no morning sickness, nothing. Was on the pill until about 3 years ago. My fiance and I have been trying to have a child since. I was pregnant last year at about this time, and at 10 weeks I had a d&c (the fetus apparently was about 7-1/2 wks). This was in April of last year. I had another d&c on January 2 of this month at about 7 weeks.
I just found out I am pregnant again. My last period was February 28 so I'm not far along at all. I asked my doctor if there was ANYTHING that could be done to help me carry this baby to full term. He has put me on progesterone 100mg once a day pills.
Here's the problem. Since I turned about 30, I have had severe menstrual cramping with each period. Some months less severe than others. With my first miscarriage the cramping was so severe that most of the time I spent sitting on a toilet just crying begging it to stop and not knowing if I could do this for 9 months. I didn't have to, obviously, and boy did I feel bad for even thinking it. The second pregnancy, same thing. Cramping, but not quite as severe as the first.
Here it is... 3rd time (hoping it's the charm), but I have been cramping at least once a day severely. I just started taking the progesterone 4 days ago. Will the cramps get better and will I be able to carry this one full term?
