  • Hey, I'm over in the July-Sept. boards but I was on progesterone suppositories for the first 12 weeks of pregnancy. These are to help support the pregnancy in the beginning until the placenta takes over producing enough progesterone. They reduce your risk of miscarriage. Needless to say they're not fun and you tend to leak afterwards (sorry, TMI). Just be sure to wear pantiliners. However, they're definitely worth it. I'm currently 25 wks pregnant with a healthy baby boy. Best of luck!
