    started the prometrium pills last night

    So I got the call from the nurse yesterday saying I can go from 2 to 1 with my shots of progesterone and I am thrilled about that! Well I was told to start that last night and also take 2 pills of the prometrium at night and 2 in the morning. Last night I didnt really notice anything but this morning I took them at 8:30 and by 9:30 I felt like I had taken demerol! I remember last time be having to have a nap time but whew I am double tired this time! ANyone else taking them and feeling like this too? I have 3 kids at home, I work full time, go to school part time and I am a moderator for a yahoo pregnancy group which I have been doing for 2 years now so I am not ready to give that up yet. WOW!

    Re: started the prometrium pills last night

    Ohhh I am not that busy~! LOL You ladies are funny. I do my school work online and do homework when I have down time at work which is just about the whole day. I work in a tanning salon and wait on 20 people during my shift. I also check my email alot for the group on my down time at work. Then when I am home I am with my family, so see not that busy.

    I have a question about the vaginal med. Do you do them every night? I would hate that but thats just me. I am hoping to get used to these pills soon. My RE's RN said that this summer they are coming out with suppositries but I have heard of them from a few years ago.

    Yup Susan we do have to do it every night. Not fun especially the next day when it starts spewing out. YUCK! But next time I think I am getting the shots but I hurt more than any of the other injectibles so I am not looking forward to that!!

    Susan I take them vaginally like I mentioned but I have to do it 2 times a day.I dont have many side effects except for bloating but dont all the meds do that.Its the same pill that is taken orally the little yellow pill.It is a little yucky like Deluka said but when I see the discharge I am so glad I dont have to take that orally.Well good luck and let us know.

    Oh can u hook us up with some tanning cause I am white as a ghost.lol.

    Re: started the prometrium pills last night

    I am TTC, and just started Prometrium (the pills) yesterday morning. I take them morning and night. I haven't experienced any real side effects. My stomach has started hurting though, I don't know if that is because of the pills or not but it is real uncomfortable. I remember having a crampy feeling with other pregnancies (ended in M/C's), but I dont' think that this is that. ?

    Are you TTC or pregnant?

    Hi there, I am 7 weeks pregnant today. You havent gotten tired yet? I take the 2 pills in the morning and then 2 at night along with my progestrone shot at night and within 30 min of taking the pills I am sleepy as ever. Yesterday I let myself sleep all day. Today is a chore to stay awake.

    Re: started the prometrium pills last night

    OMG! I'm so glad I'm not the only one! I thought I was a narcoleptic or something! I sleep ALL day long! I don't get up until 10:30, only to make breakfast for my son (step son) and then I go back to bed! Then I wake up to make him lunch, then stay up for a couple of hours, then usually fall asleep on the couch while he is playing. Today is my first day back to work since on the meds, and I cannot stay awake!!! I came in at 6 this moring and stay til 6 tonight! I'm never gonna make it!
    Question though- yesterday I started getting like a crampy or pressure feeling. Is that normal? I know that I feel that when you get pregnant, but we would have only conceived last weekend. And I think that is too early. Does the prometrium make you feel that?

    Thanks for your reply's!!!

    I have had cramps with all of my pregnancies. There would be times when I thought I was getting my period because I cramped so bad. I have also heard too that the prometrium can make you cramp. Hope this helps! I slept pretty much all day too today!

    Re: started the prometrium pills last night

    yeah, I've had cramps/uncomfortable feeling for three days now, and everyday it seems to get a little more noticable. I work with a doctor so I asked him yesterday if this was normal (and the fatigue), he AND the doctor that prescribed it to me said that the fatigue is not a side affect.?? I don't know. But I don't about these cramps either. I wouldn't feel 'pregnancy cramps' this early. It would only be one week since I would have conceived.

    Thoughts?

    Re: started the prometrium pills last night

    So it has been almost 3 weeks now since I've been on the Prometrium and I'm still feeling tired and dull pelvic pain, and don't know what the deal is! I talked to my doc last night about it and she says to come in on tuesday to get a pregnancy test. I hope I actually NEED to because I'm missed my period though!!!!

    *keeping my fingers crossed*
