My friend, If you find that any of the facts that I post here to be inacurate, feel free to refute. It would be nice to have mature discussions about the the "facts". Otherwise there is no reason  to stick your tongue out, and imply that "facts" here are inaccurate.  :)

??? Who woulda thunk it?

A side affect of Progesterone is fatigue. Hashem made it that progesterone helps maintain the endometrial tissue, which in turn helps keep the baby connected to the mother until the placenta takes over which is at about 3 months.
