I am going to be starting this to prevent another preemie after my water broke unexpectedly at 32 weeks. I have seen discussions of this before and generally everyone says there are no symptoms. I have HG and feel so sick (and throw up a lot) during pregnancy. It tends to get better for me right about the time I am going to be starting the injections. If this makes me sick, I don't think I can take it. My baby has been neglected for weeks, the house is falling apart, and I have to have some good weeks before we get another baby. I seriously doubt that if progesterone in my body is so high that it's responsible for my sickness that I need more, but I think usually estrogen is blamed for sickness rather than progesterone. Can anyone tell me if they saw any morning sickness type symptoms when they started this? Also, I am going to be teaching for 12 hours straight the day after the injection. Does anyone see any problem with this? Thanks!
That being said, I didn't have any symptoms besides a sore tush!
I took the shots from weeks 16-36 with DS. At first, there were some hormonal issues, but it's kind of hard to tell if that was because of the shot or just normal pregnancy stuff.
The first few weeks I definitely had some soreness at the injection site (don't walk around a store just after getting it!), but that could be because of the skill of the person giving it.
Obviously everyone's reactions will be different, but I've never heard of anyone having vomiting from it.

Dum spiro, spero.
I was so sick during preg 2 and 3, but never ever got sick with 4th. I also had to take oral progesterone the first few weeks. Usually I'm the Zofran queen.
The injections do hurt like the devil. However, ask the pharmacist or nurse to give you the smallest gauge needle possible; since the meds are so thick they can't give you a tiny one, but I had less pain when they would use the smaller needles..size 16, I think.. I could be way off there.

They aren't fun by any means, but they aren't that bad really. Good luck!
However, my OB's nurse gave me the injections, and I would leave my meds there so I wouldn't forget to bring it with me every time. So perhaps..maybe there would still be a way to warm it up for someone else that has to go to a dr office? I would definitely ask!
