Hello casperleb1 , greetings from I am Dr Sourav Chakraborty and i will be helping you with your querry. The medication you mentioned is given to prevent threaten miscarriage and also in recurrent miscarriage untill conception then continuously until wk 20 of pregnancy, then it is gradually reduced . Your doctor might think that clinically you are stable enough to stop that medication., consult with your doctor regarding this . This kind of medications are known to have side effects like dizziness, nausea, headache, fatigue, emotional upsets/ mood swings , irritability, abdominal upset , generalised body ache . Also do look out for loss of vision or regular blurring of vision and other visual disturbances migraine, calf pain , renal impairment, epilepsy, asthma just to name a few. So you and your doctor both have to be careful and weigh both the positive and negative points against it. Till now i think your doctor is doing a wonderful job and do recommend you to follow his advice and do not think otherwise. Hope i have been able to help you . Take care.

Miscariage in chromosomal anomaly is nature's way of terminating the pregnancy when fetus is abnormal and cannot live!
Now that your doctor says it is OK to stop the medicine, hope for the best and follow the advice.
You have to trust your doctor in this matter.
You may need serial ultrasound to evaluate the baby.
All the best
