Stopping the progesterone is so hard mentally. I think I stopped mine around that same time, and I slowly decreased the dose over a few weeks because I couldn't just let go of it cold turkey.

I'm so glad that things are looking good for you and baby

I felt the same about stopping the progesterone. I also slowly weaned myself because I couldn't bear to do it all at once. Good luck! You can do it and the baby will be just fine!

If I hadn't run out of my prescription I probably would have kept up with the progesterone for a while after I was told I could stop. Mine were nightly injections and I hated them and they had started to get pretty painful, but I didn't want to let go of that security blanket either. I definitely understand.

My levels are stubbornly low. With Liam, I was on progesterone until 33 weeks. With this pregnancy, it was until 27 weeks. This pregnancy, I'd stop here and there and my levels would drop dangerously low. I realize my condition is rare and that most women, even with low progesterone, can get off of it at the end of first trimester. I'm just not one of them.

Tasha, what if your doctor just monitored your levels for you for a little while to give you the reassurance that everything is ok like they said?
~Tanya~ and melissalaw like this.

I like Joy's idea of having your dr monitor your levels. I wasn't on progestrone but I completely understand your hesitation and fear of going off of it.

So glad baby is doing so good.
