The shots give you soooo much more support! I’m on the PIO shots as well and will be for a few more weeks. 🙂

What shots are you guys talking about? Is it progesterone?
The only thing my doctor gave me was progesterone supplements.

Well, my doctor says I don’t need anything but my prenatals until I see her in 1 1/2 weeks (longest weeks ever). Because she only took my hormone levels last week, perhaps she thinks I don’t need progesterone? on the “plus” side I have huge bloating (like I actually could almost pass as having a bump level bloating) and feel queasy most of the time, plus sore boobs most of the time, which are (frustratingly) all good signs! I am actually asymptomatic for about an hour each morning and I HATE that hour, I’d rather feel ill and know pregnancy is doing it’s thing!

PIO shots is indeed progesterone (stands for Progesterone in Oil). It’s a higher level of progesterone support than the supplements. I was on vaginal suppositories with my last loss and they happened to check my progesterone both at 7dpo and at 16dpo that cycle and saw that it was a HUGE drop that couldn’t be explained off by the miscarriage. So they switched me to PIO shots and that’s been just the support that I needed. My butt hates me for them though. lol

Ouch! Well, it’s definitely worth it. 🙂
I hope my pill dose of progesterone is enough…maybe I should ask my doctor about the shots.

Ack I remember the shots. Every time I had to hurry up and jog across the street because the traffic light was changing, it felt like I was being kicked in the butt with each step.
OP – I wouldn’t worry if I were you. I was given the shots because at my first appointment when my hormone levels were checked, my progesterone was low.
