lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. It is good that you are being given progesterone, it will help in maintaining pregnancy. Another aspect you have to keep in mind is to maintain TSH levels in the following manner: 1st Trimester 0.1 to 2.5 mU/L, 2nd Trimester 0.2 to 3 mU/L & 3rd Trimester 0.3 to 3 mU/L. This is very critical from the point of view of proper fetal growth and desired outcome of pregnancy. Therefore please check your TSH levels every 4 weeks and see that levels are with in specified limits. Thanks.
