Hello ladies. I am a plus size women and finally pregnant after 9 months of trying after my first M/C which happened back in March of 05. I was trying to loose some weight before i got pregnant again because I always here people say that over weight women have complicated pregnancys. I succeeded at losing some weight but i am still a big women. I am scare that I am going to lose this baby and my whole world is going to be ripped out from under me again. I recently had my first blood test and was told that my HCG level was good but my progesterone level was 8.88 and should be at 10. The doc put me on prometrium 200 mg. 1 X at night. Has anyone had any experience with over weight pregnancy as well as low progesterone levels. I am so scared and looking for support. Thank you.

I am significantly overweight. I had to take Prometrium from about week 7 until week 12. I take blood pressure medicine, and I was on some meds when I got pregnant that the doctor did not like, so they considered me high risk. I had a very healthy, uneventful pregnancy. After the birth I ended up losing 40 lbs with in a week or two. I now have a healthy, happy 2 month old son. No matter how well things go, you are still going to worry, just try not to dwell on "what ifs" too much! Good Luck!!
