Pregnant after a Loss

Intro & progesterone supplement questions

Hi everyone, I have made my way over from the TTCAL board. A little about my journey... I had my first BFP on January 1st and that ended with a blighted ovum and D&C on February 5th. I really thought that I was out this month after my DH and I were sick with fevers over my fertile window and timing wasn't great. I got my first really faint BFP on Wednesday morning with a beta confirmation that afternoon of 34. Wasn't real optimistic but they repeated beta on Friday morning and it was 72. That was great news heading into Memorial Day weekend. On the down side they had tested my progesterone and it was a little low, so they prescribed progesterone suppositories. Does anyone have any tips, tricks, or experiences with these?
I am trying to be optomistic with this pregnancy and enjoy it... but I'm sure as many of you know that can be hard sometimes. I can tell from some of the posts I  have already read that this is a great community, just like the TTCAL is and I am looking forward to the next 9 months you ladies.

  • Welcome. I am sorry about your previous loss. I am on progesterone suppositories 3x/day. I always wear a panty liner and try to stay seated for at least 15 min after. Wet wipes are your friend.

  • @susykat77 I learned the panty liner thing the hard way this morning, lol. I will have to invest in some wet wipes. Thanks for the tips!
