Make me stop!

My RE told me that I could start to taper off the PIO a bit before 10 weeks and then and stop completely at 10 weeks. Did I do that? Noooooo. I figured I would wait until my after my ob appointment on Monday when I was 11 weeks. Did I remember to ask my ob about stopping? Noooo. Have I stopped? Nooooo. Why not you ask? Put simply, I am paranoid that I will stop and something bad will happen. My compromise for right now is that I think I am going to switch to progesterone gel. I have six days worth leftover from my IUIs so I could use that until I'm 12 weeks. It's perfectly safe to stop at 12 weeks, correct? Please tell me to stop!

Also, if you could please tell this baby that mom needs food and water to live. Those two items are not a luxury, they are a necessity. The throwing up/dry heaving is bad. It taking hours to decide what to eat may be worse. Feeling nasuseous all the time, specially after taking even a small sip of water, is horrible. You gotta work with my here and let me eat and drink.

Sorry you are not feeling so great, hope you feel better soon.

Thanks for answering my question

If nothing else makes you stop, maybe this will. The nausea got SO much better after stopping. Maybe it was a coincidence, but it definitely made it worth it in my book. Plus, I promise that your butt will thank you.
BTW, I am not sure if I would have stopped if my DH hadn't put his foot down.
