So RE prescribed Provera (5 mg) so i would get AF and get IF tests going. I picked them up early this am when I was groggy and too one with my daily dose of metformin, prenatals and supplements. I forgot to take preg test like i was told before taking the Provera. Wen I realized tonight and got really nervous, so I took a First Reponse I had laying around. TWO LINES appeared and I only peed a drop. This can’t be real. I have PCOS and really long annovulatory cycles. The last time we DTD was 4/23 – Darling Husband was out of town, then sick and then I was out of town. So, I am sure of it. DH is on his way with a second test to make sure. I am a little worried since I took the Provera and had a few drinks in the past few weeks (don’t judge). yikes!

The first couple of weeks, the fetus feeds off of a yolk sac, not from your blood, so there’s no worries about the few drinks :-). I’m sure it’s all ok!! Congrats!!

I don’t have any experience with Provera but in regards to a few drinks I would not be worried at all.
Keep us updated what your second test says. Good luck!

@ctbridetobe: Congrats! YAY!
You will want to talk to your doctor about the provera. Taking the medication while pregnant isn’t a problem, I don’t think, because it’s just progesterone, which your body produces during your LP and uses to help the embryo implant. You only took it one day, so it might not matter, but your doc also might choose to keep you on a progesterone supplement through the end of your first trimester, just in case.

WOW congrats!!! 🙂 Don’t worry about the drinks – like PPs said it was too early for the fetus to share !

Congrats! Like the others said, I wouldn’t worry about it. You only took Provera once before finding out and you didn’t do any hard core drinking so the baby should be fine. I know some people who drink a LOT and don’t find out they are pregnant until 2-3 months and the babies are fine. You should have to worry about anything but I wiould talk to your doctor about the medicine.

@JaneyD: Went to doc today and she confirmed with urine but also took blood for Beta. I should hear tomorrow. She also told me not to worry about Provera or the drinks. She advised I stop the Metformin and told me to come back in 3 weeks.
