Any ladies on Progesterone? Increased nausea?

I had my first appointment yesterday and got to see my little sweet pea They measured it at 5+6, but aren't going to adjust the 3 days on my due date yet. The doctor said the heart beat was a little slower than she wanted it. She said it could just be because the heart is just now forming, or it could be low progesterone. She told me not to worry at all and gave me 200mg Progesterone pills just incase and I took my first one last night.

I've been slightly nauseous the past couple days but I can feel it a lot more today. Does Progesterone increase your pregnancy symptoms or is it just a coincidence and I'm just feeling more sick at 6 weeks?

Progesterone can make you more nauseous. I'm on 100mg suppositories and I feel nausea at weird times during the day but it's not constant. I just really am tired and have sore boobs..but it's the nipple area that's really sore.

I've been on 100mg progesterone since my IUI. The nausea I've been experiencing throughout my pregnancy has been overall mild and disperse (except from a few random, intense attacks), even though my hcg levels were quadrapling.

You could check the box for side-effects.

Do keep in mind that progesterone can cause extra cramping, so if you do experience some (which could also be stretching pains), don't panic.

Not sure if I was any help or not. But I'd think that being able to hear a HB @ 5w6d is already a very good sign, as many people can only see the sac at that stage.

GL hon!

progestrone made me really nasuea, I started taking it before bed, and slept through most of the effects. Don't worry about the low heartrate, my doctor told me the same thing. My babys heartbeat was 102 bpm at 6 weeks, by 8 weeks it was 157!

I've been taking progesterone 100mg three times a day since we discovered we are pregnant. I think I'm oblivious to the side effects at this point because I've taken it on and off since we started trying to get pregnant. But I will say that taking it vaginally is supposed to reduce the side effects.

Yea, on my box of Progesterone Gel it said nausea was a side affect, of many side effects. However I didn't really experience it, mostly it made me dizzy and sleepy the first week I took it until my body got used to it.

Also on progesterone gel..have mild nausea, and I can only guess my BBs might be more tender, but this is my first so I'm not sure. I definitely have increased cramming after each dose and it's irritated my cervix to the point of minor bleeding (brown, not red).

Overall it's not too bad!
