Progesterone Injections

all-smiles - July 1

I'm new to the site, and was hoping to get some advice. I'm a 27 yr. old woman and I'm in my 3rd month of pregnancy. This is not my first baby, so I'm pretty familiar with how things might be. I had a twin pregnancy about 9 years ago, and I went into pre-term labor at 26 wks. My twin girls were born (by cesarean section) 14 wks. premature. I ended up losing one of my girls after 9 days. After that devastation, I was blessed to have 2 normal full term pregnancies where I delivered my babies VBAC. I am now pregnant with my 4th child, and since my regular GYN is no longer in obstetrics, she referred me to an old partner of hers. After explaining my medical history to the new OB, he advised that I should begin progesterone injections around my 16th week in order to "keep my uterus calm". I delivered my last two children at 36 weeks each. My doctor says that full term is 37 weeks. So thats the reason he wants me to begin progesterone injections. I've never had this before in any of my prior pregnancies and I'm not comfortable with doing it now. I HATE medicine. I gave birth to my last two babies w/o any anesthesia. I would just like to know if there's anyone out there who has had progesterone injections, what were the side effects, and how long you were on it. I'm sitting on the fence with this one, and I really need some feedback. Thanks.
