Hi Guys,
It's been a fairly uneventful pregnancy until now (I'm 8wks 5days) but last night I was tossing and turning with what I think were cramps (I was half asleep but I kept feeling something and then taking a drink, rolling onto my left side and falling back asleep). Today my groin area is a little sore, kind of like after some exercise. I had some GI upset over the past few days so I figured I may have been a little dehydrated. I got my E2 and P4 checked today and my E2 continues to rise but my P4 is significantly down- 31.9 today down from being mostly in the 50s over the past few weeks (and as high as 72). I haven't decreased my P4 support (on 1cc PIO and 2 endometrin 100mg supps/day) and I'm worried. I spoke to my nurse at C.ornell and she said I could up my PIO to 1.5cc/day- I also just took a prometrium tab I had lying around. I also called the OB office and they weren't too concerned either. Mrs. A- I know you said something about hormones starting to lower and throwing you into a tailspin... Does this sound like what you were talking about? There's been absolutely no spotting and I continue to have the mild nausea, fatigue and tender boobs I have had in the past. Should I be worried? Any advice? Thanks so much in advance!
