This could work

Still can't quite believe it, but...

Second beta 316. Progesterone "excellent".

Ultrasound August 10. Running out the door to pick up new weekly-dose progesterone prescription. Couldn't be happier. Oh, and still no symptoms. Nary a one.

Real post with complete sentences coming soon.

Updated to add: What with all of the popular demand, I will herewith provide the weekly progesterone information for the benefit of jabbed and bruised women everywhere: It is called Hydroxyprogesterone Caproate, and it is in a suspension of castor oil. The progesterone-to-suspension ratio is much higher, so I'm still only shooting one CC, but it breaks down very slowly, providing a consistent progesterone supply for a full seven days. (I grilled the pharmacist, as it just didn't seem possible, but he assured me that...well, he said something that involved the words "chemical makeup" but I didn't quite take it in.) The only drawback is that it requires the 22G needle, which is not pleasant. But at least it will be not pleasant just once a week.

The product is, you guessed it, from The Medicine Shoppe. Email me if you'd like their phone number. I am considering making The Medicine Shoppe our embryo's godmother. Also, I do not own stock in The Medicine Shoppe, but I would if I could.

with my first pregnancy i didn't feel ANY symptoms in the beginning. of course, i worried, panicked and took HPTs every day to make sure i was still pregnant. then i hit 10wks and the morning sickness came with a vengeance! stayed with me until the day i delivered! I HATE NAUSEA!!
