Question about stopping PIO and delestrogen shots...

Post by jcvp » Mon Feb 01, 2010 3:14 pm

This question may not be in the right place, but didn't know where to ask it...

I am 10 1/2 weeks pregnant today from IVF. Have had 3 ultrasounds so far and the last one was at 9 1/2 weeks. Everything looked great.
I was instructed to start weaning my PIO and delestrogen shots starting at 9 1/2 weeks and completely stop at 10 weeks, which was this last Friday.

For about 4 days, all of my nausea and sore bb's completely went away. This morning, I've had a little bit of nausea come back, but nothing else.

Should I be concerned that something is wrong with the baby, or could this be from stopping the shots? OR, is this around the time that my hormones could be leveling off and my nausea is just getting better?

I do have another ultrasound this Wednesday, but I've been going crazy all weekend!

Thank you for any input!

I fought to stay on the PIO's because my pregnancy was going well and I was worried that was way. Both the RE and OB said they are worthless after 10 weeks since the placenta is doing all that. If the placenta doesn't make the projesterone, then you have bigger problems! That's what they told me.
I am 18wks PG now and my symptoms have come and gone. One week I have sore boobs, one week I don't. As hard as it is, don't worry!
