I have been diagnosed with PCOS.  We tried 5 IUIs without success; however, by the miracle of medicine, I did get pregnant with IVF. I'm just about 10 weeks and am still taking progesterone (injections), estrongen and aspirin.  I was told that I'll stop the hormones at 12 weeks.  I'm really nervous about stopping these since my initial problem was a hormone imbalance. 

Any reassurance that it'll be ok to stop and that the baby will be ok?

12 weeks will be fine as the baby´s placenta actually starts producing these hormones about 9-10 weeks of pregnancy. I usually ask women to tail off the drugs over a week rather than suddenly stopping and it just seems to feel better.
