Hello all -
Almost 12 weeks and my OB suggested Makena progesterone shots starting around 16 wks - our first was born early at 35 weeks and 5 days. We are right on the cusp of needing them I guess. I wondered if anyone had feedback on them (I will post in 3rd tri too). I've started to do some research and found a few things but so far have the following questions (answer one or any:)):
1. Have you found this shot to significantly alter your outlook i.e. cause depression or mood swings (worse than you expect in pregnancy of course LOL
2. When did you start/when will you stop the shot?
3. Has anyone heard that this shot can cause prolonged labor and extremely slow dilation after you stop taking the shot? I read of people going into labor about 7-10 days after stopping the shot.
4. Have you found the shot to cause significant weight gain?
I've tried to limit the things I take during pregnancy (really I haven't even taken Tylenol) so I'm feeling a bit lost and trying to do my research.. Thanks for any thoughts/guidance you have on this.
