Almost there…

The second trimester, that is.

Phew…looking forward to being done with this nerve-wracking first trimester. I hate to wish time away, especially since I’ve been waiting to experience this for so long, but the first trimester has been tough. Not just physically but emotionally as well. I have been so terrified through these past ten weeks, that I am emotionally drained. I’m hoping this will ease up a bit as I make my way into the next phase of this pregnancy.

My weaning is going well. I’m down to estrace twice daily and suppositories twice daily. No more PIO injections and no more patches! Today’s E2 level was 2643 and P4 was 33.6. What I am most excited with in weaning off the meds is that very soon there will be no more weekly blood draws! You have NO idea how frustrating these have been. Week after week of screw ups and miscommunication. It’s been beyond annoying.

I had my NT ultrasound yesterday. It was great to see the little one moving around like crazy. The scan did end up causing us a bit of worry, however – only because the tech wasn’t as chatty as past techs and so it made us worry that something was up. When I met with my OB today, however, she said that according to the report she received everything looked normal. She did say that the radiologist couldn’t get a clear picture or measurements of everything because of the postion of the little one, but she said everything they did record was normal. So she said we could either just leave it or redo the scan next week if that would make me feel better. After discussing it with her, I think I’ll repeat it – just for peace of mind.

So that’s that for now…12 weeks tomorrow – very grateful.

  1. Can’t believe you’re already almost past the first trimester! Where does the time go??

    Weaning off estrogen and progesterone (and those weekly blood draws) is one of the BEST parts of the process! I felt so much better once I was off of that stuff.

    Cannot wait until you’re in the second trimester and can break the news publicly…it’s so wonderful you’ve gotten this far!

  2. Glad to hear your NT scan was normal – I guess it won’t hurt to further confirm that and it is so much fun to see them wriggling around in there. Getting past the first trimester is a huge hurdle! I felt my anxiety levels really drop after the 20 week scan – but go ahead and start enjoying yourself now, because you have earned it!

  3. Yay to first trimetster being almost over. I think its good you are doing the scan again though with CCS tested embryos I am sure there is very little concern. To answer your question on my blog, yes I do think the m/s is easing up a bit the past day or so (crossing fingers). I still get tired though and the smells are too much, can smell things a mile.
