So first of all, coming out of the closet, I'm 13 weeks pregnant with baby number 2! I'm due Aug 14th.
I was 5 weeks early with my first who then spent 18 days in the NICU. since I have a history of preterm labor, i've already been referred to a specialist who will do all of my ultrasounds. They will monitor me much closer this time. They have also suggested weekly progesterone shots starting at around week 16-17 through week 36. Has anyone gone through this? The dr says there are little side effects and taking the shots will reduce my risk for another preterm labor from 30% to at least 15%.
Even though it isn't a huge reduction in risk, I figure if there's no harm in taking them, that I should at least try. I just thought I'd get anyone else's experience with them.
