Nearly time to stop cyclogest and scared...hand holding needed!

All three of my previous pregnancies ended in miscarriage; 21 weeks, 11 weeks and 7 weeks. I am now at 11 weeks and was told by my consultant to stop taking the aspirin and cyclogest at 12-16 weeks depending on what my obstetrician says. Well that consultant was after losing baby two, I didn't get to see anyone after losing my last and so far have only had a midwife booking appointment with this pregnancy. I had the last baby sent to Guys for testing and my husband and I were karyotyped. That was about 20 weeks ago now and every time I ask if the results are in they say 'we're chasing it up". Not very bloody hard! I'm so frustrated and really scared that when I stop the cyclogest I'm going to start bleeding and it will all be over. I thought by now I could have spoken to someone about it and maybe had my worries eased. It feels like they're all avoiding me.
Is there anyone out there who took cyclogest after several losses and went on to have their baby with no bleeding?

Hiya, I had recurrent m/c and on my second try with cyclogest I had the same worry as you, carried on til almost 14 weeks (had some extra from the previous pregnancy)! But my doctor said that well before that time the placenta takes over the progesterone production from the ovaries.

Hope your pregnancy goes well - hang in there.

Thanks, hope the baby takes your advice and hangs on in there too! With my first the placenta just peeled away and left my baby with nothing so my worry is that if the problem is with my placenta the same will happen again. Only time will tell.
I had lots of stomach aches yesterday and kept waking up with it too last night. Am trying to hold on to my last bit of sanity until Mondays scan.

PS did you wean yourself off the cyclogest or just stop?
