I think that no matter what your doctor thinks about progesterone/aspirin, for him to express what he did to you is wrong. So what if it's possible that it's only for the mom's benefit. Isn't reduced stress, calmer moms, and less anxiety best for baby? Lower heartrate, less cortisol/adrenaline, etc etc...your OB has no tact, to say the least, and if a harmless supplement makes mom feel better, then I'm all for it.
Besides, who's to say that even if a mom has a healthy pregnancy and then unexplained losses, that something didn't go haywire with her body? And then she needs the aspirin or progesterone for subsequent babies?
Anyway, I know it's really tough in the first tri. Sending hugs and positive thoughts your way...I hated the first tri with a passion. I didn't hate the baby or the pregnancy, I just hated the worry. Hugs!
