Use them vaginally for your daytime dose and you'll get less symptoms.

I was able to switch to prometrium Rx at 8 weeks gestation, and I'm now nausiated and ill (I just posted a more detailed version of this in the pregnancy board). I'm thinking strongly of going back to the cream, even though it's more expensive....but hoping I only need progesterone for another 2 weeks tops, so perhaps I may wait and see.
Do you have symptoms of low progesterone levels? Check online for symptoms of it. I know with me, periods can be irregular, boobs quite sore, and horrible cramping during ovulation, and sometimes during menstration.
