I was on 90mg crinone x2 daily up until 11 weeks. However from weeks 9- until I have my baby, I'm on a low dose baby aspirin and caltrate morning and night- plus elevit
Little update on me: I think I'm about to miscarry for the fourth time in a row. I started bleeding yesterday. So far today it's kinda stopped but I know from past experience that this happens - stop-start bleeding. I will get HCG results tomorrow but not hopeful.
This is now my fourth miscarriage. And first one since being on Prednisolone to treat immune issues.
I think my next step will have to be addressing the adenomyosis via down regulation. It has got to be what's causing my issues.
A positive update from me!
I got my HCG results ladies! I'm floored!!!!
It went from 271 at 14 dpo to 717 at 16 dpo!!!!!!!
FS doesn't think I need to up my progesterone despite the bleeding.
We're doing another HCG beta and checking progesterone levels tomorrow.
But it's looking good!!! I'm beyond happy.
These numbers are even higher than with my DD (had 472 at 16 dpo with her).
Please, please stick baby!
Oh Lulubee- that's great news! Try and stick to your guns and stick on progesterone even if your levels are good!!
I've actually been spotting throughout this pregnancy- I've just come out of hospital after I suffered an incarcerated uterus. Let me just say it has been up their with my most traumatic experirence . I'm wondering if the adno was the cause of my retroverted uterus becoming stuck?
Thankfully it has fixed itself now naturally- but was very scary for a moment!
Keep me updated LuLu
Great news Lulu! Personally from all the immune girls I talk to, anyone with bleeding always ups their progesterone - I'm on PIO once a day, 400mg pessarie and crinone at lunch with no bleeding and staying on this until 12 weeks & then dropping PIO to every 2nd day for 2 weeks, then crinone at 15 weeks, pessarie stopping at 16 weeks (under Dr M's protocol) everyone is a little different, but most are on fairly large doses as it helps calm the immune system as well. You can't overdose on it.. just need to usually be off it by 16 weeks is my understanding.
Ally - that sounds terribly frightening and painful, so glad it is all ok now. I haven't heard of that either, and have a retroverted u. as well.
It was pretty awful - but I have recovered now And my baby is still fighting strong. I won't go into detail- but I'm convinced child birth will be a cake walk compared to what I went through. All worth it for my little blessing.
