.I think I posted in the wrong spot a few days ago, so I will try THIS forum:)
I will just copy and paste my other post, and the one reply I received, and then what has transpired in the last 24 hours.
I need a little input, First I am thrilled to announce that we are expecting a new bundle sometime this late November!! We couldnt be happier...but...
I had my progesterone tested and it was VERY low. 7.9!!
My GP (who made it perfectly clear he is not treating my pregnancy because he doesnt do OB) put me on 200mg of Prometrium once daily.
I have been taking this for four days now. Things were going well, but starting the night before last, I noticed when I wipe, there was a tinge on the paper. Not pink, not red, just not white or clear. Today it is darker...kinda a pale tan?
My question, can the prometrium change the chemsty of my mucus? There no "flow" per say, and I talked to my midwife. We had a miscarriage before Zach, and it took us over a year to conceive him. My levels were low with him as well, and required supplements also. Does anyone have any insight or experience with this? I have been finding a few mainstream sites that say this is normal, but its sites like "the bump" *puke*
I dont feel any cramping or pain....any twitch or pain I do feel and get freaked out about turns out to be gas and will pass.
I havent been working out, and havent had sex in a week. Just normal mild activity around the house, dishes, laundry, playing with my 18 month old...
I just cant get past the worry!!

Yes, progesterone suppositories often make it look like you have an "orange-ish" discharge. I see it a tiny bit when I've used them and my acupuncturist (who works with IVF clinics) said her clients tell her that they see it all the time (they are often worried about it) and that's it's completely normal.
So, the discharge got darker after that first post.
Still not RED, but no longer light tan, now its brown with a hint of pink... I flipped out yesterday morning, got a hold of my doc who did a blood test to see where we were. 10.0!! It should be NO LESS then a 20!! Yikes!
So he put me on 200mg prometrium twice daily over the previous once daily...
While the color isnt much lighter, the fluid is thinner and seems to be more diluted. Does that make sense?
My midwife and I heard the heartbeat two nights ago, loud, strong and right at the 150 mark.
I still am worried to death, and I guess I really wont stop obsessing over this until I stop spotting, but what insight does everyon have? I have been trying to rest and just numb my mind with other crap, but its not working. My 18 month old senses my anxiety and has been acting out. I cant just go upstairs and go to bed...so I end up slowly cleaning stuff...which is pretty much the LAST thing I need to be doing right now. Just at my wits end....anyone that can offer help with some words of wisdom would be pretty great!!
